Liverpool FC transfer news: James Rodriguez could join Reds for close to £70m

Liverpool eliminated James Rodriguez’s Bayern Munich in the Champions League, however, the Reds are interested in the 27-year-old, according to El Confidencial (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The 27-year-old has been on a two-year loan at the Bavarians from Real Madrid and the report adds that should Bayern want to sign him permanently, they would have to cough up £50m.

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

The report claims that should Bayern not sign Rodriguez at the end of the season, they will try to gain more funds by slapping a £70m price-tag on the 27-year-old.

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.
