European giant name price for superstar target of Man United and Chelsea

JamesRodriguezThere’s talk of a big mover in the summer transfer market here in the Transfer Tavern as fans are excitingly debating whether a genuine superstar could be on his way to the Premier League.

The Daily Mirror state Real Madrid are preparing to cash-in on Colombian sensation James Rodriguez this summer, with Los Blancos slapping a price of £60m upon the 2014 World Cup icon.

Since moving to Spanish football from Monaco after an impressive performance at the World Cup two years ago, Rodriguez has found it difficult to cement a place within Real Madrid’s starting line-up.

With the Spanish giants struggling this season and looking for improvements in their squad, it’s anticipated the ten-time European champions will oversee a major squad overhaul this summer and Rodriguez is surplus to requirements.

The 24-year-old has started just 13 games for Real Madrid this term and has faced criticism off the field. However, Manchester United and Chelsea are still incredibly interested in his services.

Touted as a future Ballon D’Or contender, James Rodriguez could provide a valuable asset despite his monumental price-tag.
