James Rodriguez news

United, Chelsea back in for Rodriguez

Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea have once again been linked with a move for Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez. The Colombian is expected to leave the Bernabeu at the start of 2017.

Rodriguez, 25, has struggled for regular game time under Zinedine Zidane this term, and this has led to suggestions that he could ply his trade elsewhere.

According to Don Balon, the attacker could be on his way to England in the New Year with both United and Chelsea keen on his services.

Los Blancos had previously snubbed a £60m offer from Inter Milan for their asset, and it is predicted that they will demand a sum near the £65m range.

Rodriguez has netted 26 times for the European champions since arriving from AS Monaco in the summer of 2014.
