La Liga club planinng shock move for No.11 Blues long-term target
Los Rojiblancos keen on signing Real Madrid attack James Rodriguez and ready to compete with Chelsea, Arsenal, Man United, Juventus, Napoli and Liverpool for the footballer. Diego Simeone wants to strengthen the midfield, and his primary target is Colombia international who had an impressive campaign and proved his worth one more time.
Antoine Griezmann decided to change the working place, Thomas Lemar is in terrible form, Saul Niguez linked with several clubs and they need replacement. Argentine manager will do everything to sign him this July, but it won’t be easy as Blues, Gunners, Red Devils, Bianconeri, Little Donkeys and Reds also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window.
There will be a battle for the player, and his price could become much more. James joined the Spanish club from Monaco in 2014 with a €75m deal. He became a key figure for the club and scored many amazing goals since joining. In this season, Rodriguez played 28 games, scored seven goals and provided six assists in all competition.
It is an excellent result, and he can do much more during the next campaign. Colombian superstar has contracted with the Los Blancos until 2021, and his release clause is nearly €50m. He is a regular member of the national team line-up and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the Copa America 2019.
Probably the 27-year-old attacker will accept the correct offer from the Argentine coach. Atletico Madrid signed several footballers last summer like Thomas Lemar from Monaco, Gelson Martins from Sporting and Rodrigo from Villarreal.
