Liverpool FC transfer news: James Rodriguez could join Reds for close to £70m
The Colombian has stated that he would like a return to Real, who are now being managed by Zinedine Zidane. However, the report claims that plan could be off given the return of the Frenchman.
Zidane had left the Madrid giants prior to the start of the season but has been reinstated after a poor run of form under Santiago Solari.
Madrid want higher price for Rodriguez
Manchester United are also interested in Rodriguez (h/t Liverpool Echo) and it will be interesting to see where the Colombian ends up next season.
The attacker was one of the bright sparks in the 2014 World Cup, but his move to Real hasn’t worked out.
Liverpool could do with another attacking midfielder in the team and Rodriguez can play out wide too.
It is to be seen if we are willing to bid £70m for a player that hasn’t really been exceptional since his move to Germany.
