Catalan daily newspaper Sport claims that Real Madrid are ready to considering cashing in on star player James Rodriguez at the end of the current season.
The Colombian became one of world’s most expensive footballers when he joined from Monaco after the 2014 World Cup and he enjoyed a very good first season in Spain.
However, he has struggled for form under Rafael Benitez and now Zinedine Zidane, with club bosses also unhappy by his reported unprofessional behaviour.
As a result, los Blancos could decide to make the 24-year-old available for sale next summer, and there should be quite a few top clubs ready to offer the Colombian an escape route from Santiago Bernabeu.
After bagging 13 goals in 29 La Liga fixtures in his first season, Rodriguez could only score 4 in first 14 appearances this term, and he was pretty disappointing in the hard-fought win over Granada.
Real Madrid trail league leaders Barcelona four points and with the Catalans also having a game in hand, it is hardly surprising los Blancos are 8/1 shot to lift the league trophy.
