United and Chelsea on high alert as Real Madrid quote their price for James Rodriguez

Aakarsh / 04 April 2016

Star Columbian international James Rodriguez is expected to make a move this summer after it is understood that the Spanish giants Real Madrid are not happy with his progress since joining the club.

James came into the spotlight after immensely impressing everyone in the football world with his displays in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

His time in Brazil was enough to get him a multi-million dollar contract from one of the best clubs in Europe.

He moved to Real Madrid from AS Monaco in the summer of 2014 €75million (£60million) plus clauses as revealed by the whistle-blowing website Football Leaks.

However, he has not reached the heights he promised to in the beginning and it is now understood that Real Madrid want to sell the player after the end of the season.

A number of top European clubs will be after the young attacker but the potential asking price of £60million from the Los Blancos seems to have scared many a team away.

Madrid are understood to be happy to sell the player at a lesser price than they paid for him but the ultimate price tag is still enough to scare many teams away from accepting a deal.

The Bernabeu club would be willing to write off the minimal bonus payments that have been triggered.

PSG are one of the many clubs who can afford to take on the asking price but it is understood that the French outfit are fully focused on trying to lure Neymar Jr out of the Nou Camp this summer.

But it is expected that the Brazilian will sign a new contract with Barcelona and the 24-year old will be a good acquisition to add to the current squad.

Manchester United and Chelsea are among the English clubs that are interested in signing the player and are also capable of coughing up the cash.

But it will be interesting to see if either club feels that James is worth the big bucks and that he can help their team in the right direction.

Do you think James Rodriguez can be successful in the English Premier League?
