La Liga table leaders Real Madrid are reportedly ready to offer their star player -in the person of James Rodriguez, to Chelsea. But however, in return, they want a blues star too!
Right since last year, Rodriguez has been linked with a move away from the Madrid club and a host of Premier League big boys have been interested in the Colombia international.
This season so far, the playmaker has struggled a lot to get regular game time under new French boss Zinedine Zidane as he has been able to make just nine La Liga appearances.
Now according to a Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Real Madrid are willing to let the player leave to broker a move for either Eden Hazard or Thibaut Courtois.
The duo of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have been exceptional this season under former Juventus boss Antonio Conte, and Real Madrid are said to be big admirers of the Chelsea stars.
It was however added by Diario Gol that the Spanish giants have their eyes on other players should the Chelsea deal fall through.
The club also want to sign Juventus talisman Paulo Dybala and Bayern Munich star David Alaba – and James could be used as a sort of bait to tempt the sides into selling.
