Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are all interested in signing the 27-year-old Colombian ace James Rodriguez this summer
According to a Daily Mirror report, the next destination of James Rodriguez may be the Premier League. Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are eyeing Real Madrid, who will hardly see their transfer to Bayern Munich be permanent and will also have no future in the Spanish capital.
James Rodriguez went through a peculiar moment as a football player. Announced as the next big success after their exploits at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Colombian won a dream change for Real Madrid. But after a strong start of life with The WhitesThe dream soon turned into a nightmare, once Zinedine Zidane took over.
The 27-year-old fought for minutes in Zidane's first full season as head of Real Madrid and was subsequently loaned to Bayern Munich. At the Allianz Arena, James enjoyed a fruitful two-year stint, despite being hampered by injury problems for much of the current season.
But while he was an important member of the Bayern Munich team, Die Roten you are not expected to complete your shipment permanently. The future of the player therefore seems uncertain, with Real Madrid likely to want to unload it, although the Daily Mirror suggests that Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in him.
At Liverpool, James could be the final piece of the puzzle between the midfield and the attack, someone who could add some creativity in the middle of the park. The role of the Colombian could be similar to that interpreted by Philippe Coutinho and the one that was wanted by Nabil Fekir.
Manchester United, on the other hand, needs someone to share the creative burden with Paul Pogba, as well as being tenacious in the middle of the park. During his time at Bayern Munich, James showed that he can reprise that role very well, adding more layers to his game. He could, thus, be just the substitute that Manchester United is looking for Ander Herrera.
Arsenal, meanwhile, has been associated with an interest in the 27-year-old for some time, and has also tried to sign him on a daring loan in January. But now, with Aaron Ramsey joining Juventus, James, with his qualities, could be the ideal replacement.
With only two years remaining for the deal with Real Madrid, it is unlikely that the Colombian owner will cost a bomb; It is worth noting that the Bayern Munich purchase option was worth only £ 37 million, which makes it even more desirable for Arsenal in particular. But the Gunners, along with Liverpool and Manchester United, face strong competition from Juventus and PSG.
James Rodriguez may not have a future at Real Madrid. But with Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Juventus and PSG all interested in him, his future may still be in a high-profile club. Now it remains to know where the 27-year-old is heading for this summer, and if the transfer fee is close to the 37 million pound option that Bayern Munich had.
