Real Madrid wants to sell James Rodriguez as soon as possible, with Naples in pole position
Casa Blanca wants to give James Rodriguez a dry transfer this summer and Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring him to Italy.
Naples remains in pole position to get James Rodriguez in a dry transfer with Real Madrid, La Casa Blanca wants to get out of its financial accounts and staff as quickly as possible. Sources close to Santiago Bernabeu have confirmed to Goal that Real Madrid wants to sell James as soon as possible, ideally in the next 10 days. Indeed, the players of Madrid must return on July 8, although the involvement of James in Colombia at Copa America means he was not obliged to return to this date.
This gives more time to the Liga club, which is not interested in a new loan, to negotiate the departure of James, Naples being in pole position to afford the midfielder for an approximate amount between 30 million € 40 million. Naples President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed the club's interest in the Colombian football club in June, saying he had been asked by his coach Carlo Ancelotti, who had signed him for Madrid in 2014 and who had also brought back to Bayern Munich. "James Rodriguez is Ancelotti's wish," De Laurentiis told Kiss Kiss Radio in June. "I do not know if we need him 100%, but his talent is not in doubt, I have to help my coach, he wants James and I'm not going to beat my eyelids, even if it's very expensive. "
Although he arrived at Real Madrid with a flourish after his exploits to win the top scorer title at the 2014 World Cup, James Rodriguez failed to get a significant impact in the Spanish capital and was loaned to Bayern in 2017. Its two-year loan has now ended, but the champions of Germany have decided not to use their option of 42 million euros to sign a contract to indefinite period.
Naples and Carlo Ancelotti are confident that they will be able to reach an agreement before the end of the month. The return date of the first team for the pre-season is July 6, when they will travel to Trentino for 20 days for the first part of their summer preparation.
Real Madrid, for its part, plans to part with a number of players from the first team before traveling to the United States for the International Champions Cup. In addition to James Rodriguez, Theo Hernandez and Sergio Reguilon, who will move to clubs in Milan and Sevilla respectively, Martin Odegaard, Borja Mayoral and Raul De Tomas should all be transferred to other clubs.
Isco and Gareth Bale are two other players that Real Madrid wants to separate, although the latter's high salaries, as well as his determination to stay at the club, mean that it remains a difficult process to get him to leave. Regarding arrivals, Zinedine Zidane's team has cooled his interest in Neymar to ensure a future transfer of Kylian Mbappe, while Paul Pogba remains one of the main targets this summer.
