Real Madrid will ‘give away’ James Rodriguez for €25m

Real Madrid are willing to sell James Rodriguez for a cut-price €25m this summer, according to Marca.

The 28-year-old wants to quit Madrid and the feeling is mutual, so Los Blancos are trying to facilitate his exit.

James has just one year left on his contract and Madrid want to avoid losing him for free next summer.

Florentino Perez is willing to accept €25m just to get James off the books, after wanting €45-50m for him last year.

The Colombian midfielder was close to joining rivals Atletico Madrid last year and they have again been linked recently.

Madrid prefer not to sell players to Atleti so a move to the Metropolitano Stadium is difficult.

Serie A sides Juventus and Napoli have cooled their interest in Rodriguez, but there is interest from the Premier League.

Manchester United, Everton, Arsenal and Wolves are believed to hold an interest in James, knowing he is available on the cheap.

Madrid are planning a number of sales this summer having lost money due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

And James’ wage packet of €7m-per-season is one they are desperate to get off the books.

The former FC Porto star spent two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich, but they decided not to use their €42m option to buy.
