Transfer Fight: Three Premier League Clubs In Battle For £63m Chelsea Target
Three Premier League teams are eyeing a move for Bayern Munich playmaker James Rodriguez this summer according to widespread reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
James Rodriguez is expected to be transfer-listed at Real Madrid upon the expiration of his loan contract at Bayern Munich.
The Colombian international is on loan with the Bavarian giants.
According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are all monitoring his situation.
Chelsea are also interested in the former AS Monaco and FC Porto player with recent reports claiming that he’s one of the players being considered as a possible replacement for star player Eden Hazard.
Belgian international Hazard is expected to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer.
James Rodriguez is on a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
His loan deal with the Bavarian giants comes to an end in the next few days.
The Colombian will leave Bayern Munich after the German Cup final clash with RB Leipzig this weekend.
He has no future at Real Madrid who are expected to place him on the transfer list.
James Rodriguez joined Real Madrid in a £63m transfer from French giants AS Monaco in 2014 but has struggled to consistently live up to that price tag.
