Florentino Pérez expects to cash a lot of money this summer to pay out all the signings already done. Gareth Bale will be the toughest player to sell, but there are some others that are in the market and can be a good deal for Los Blancos, especially James Rodríguez. The Colombian playmaker is shining with his national team in the Copa América and his value market is increasing day after day.
Zinedine Zidane is very clear about James: he doesn’t want him in the squad. Despite most of the Real Madrid supporters love him, as they showed him during the Champions League semi-finals two years ago against Bayern Munich, the French manager is decided to get rid of him as it happened when he was given on loan to Bayern. Now, the Bundesliga team refused to buy him, so Los Blancos need to find a new club.
All the rumours place James in Napoli together with Carlo Ancelotti. The Napoli supporters are very disappointed after Sarri was appointed as Juventus manager. His idol becoming the boss of the most hated team in the Serie A. However, their hopes are in Colombia, because James could be the new idol for these passionate supporters. But the transfer won´t be that easy.
Napoli don’t want to pay the full transfer fee this summer. For this reason, they will search for a loan with a buy clause for the next summer. However, Real Madrid would like to receive the full transfer fee, as they need some cash in the safety box for all the signings already made. So if Napoli don’t meet the expectations, they would look to some other clubs. Los Blancos paid €80M for James to Mónaco, so they would expect to have the same amount of money back, especially in a depreciated market as the current one. After the Copa América we will know his future.
