Rodriguez not keen on EPL move

Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez is prepared to snub advances from the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal as he is not keen on a Premier League move.

The 27-year-old is scheduled to return to the Bernabeu after a two-season loan with Bayern Munich and Los Blancos are thereafter expected to sanction his sale elsewhere.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both been credited with an interest in the former Monaco star but Marca claims that the Colombian has no plans of heading to the English top-flight.

Instead, he could prefer a fresh challenge in the Italian Serie A and reports indicate that Juventus and Napoli are among the front-runners to pursue the experienced playmaker.

Rodriguez, who has a contract with Los Blancos until the summer of 2021, will represent his nation at the forthcoming Copa America tournament held in Brazil. He has bagged 15 goals in 67 appearances for the German champions in the past two years.
