James Rodriguez transfer decision
Some months back, when news emanated that Chelsea star striker Diego Costa is leaving the Stamford Bridge club, one outstanding playing linked with a move to Chelsea to replace Costa is Real Madrid forward James Rodriguez.
From all indications, Rodriguez as voiced out his frustration under Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid due to his lack of regular playing time under the French boss (who has lots of options in his team).
And since it seems Rodriguez is less prefered upfront to Karim Benzema in the attack, it is normal that he should begin looking elsewhere. And right now, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is already giving green lights to let him go
Due to his brilliant performances despite his lack of playing time, different clubs have been seeking to get his signature – including the premier league trio of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Nevertheless, the player has reportedly decided the club he wants to move to, and it’s Bayern Munich.
It was reported that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a lover of James and he is ready to pay £43 million for the player.
The 25-year-old was also very much linked with a move to Chelsea, with reports stating that Madrid are ready to include him in a deal that would see them get Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. But it appears he will leave his Premier League suitors disappointed, as latest reports coming from Spain revealed his heart is on moving to Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, with the report suggesting that he is keen to reunite with former Real manager Carlo Ancelotti at Munch.
It is said that the Madrid president won’t accept any thing below £50 million, and it is not yet sure if Ancelotti can be able to convince Bayern Munich’s management to put such money down to sign James.
