Juventus to Make a Huge Bid for James Rodríguez


Juventus want to make an extra effort so they can compete with the best clubs in Europe. The Torino team have won the last Scudetti in Italy but they’ve failed to win the Champions League trophy, their great goal. The Italian team arrived to the final two years ago but they lost against Barcelona in Berlin.

In this step up in the quality of the squad, James Rodríguez could be a safe investment. The Italian team is able to make a huge bid to bring the Colombian to Italy. “Juve-James. Via Libre” is the first page of Corriere dello Sport, the Italian newspaper. The sentence could be translated as “Free go”. The Italian champions would have the money to make an offer to Florentino Pérez, who won’t accept less than €75M.

After lifting the FIFA Clubs World Cup, James Rodríguez spoke about his situation at Real Madrid and his lack of minutes. The playmaker is not happy staying on the bench and he might change team in June. It’s very unlikely that the Colombian could leave the club in January but all the options are opened.

In the meantime, Juventus are preparing the money to undertake the transfer fee. Last summer, the Italian champion paid €90M for Gonzalo Higuaín to Napoli, the most expensive transfer in the Italian history. With James Rodríguez, they would bring more quality to a winning squad, currently in the first position of the table in Serie A.

Juventus are trying to sign some other players in the winter transfer window. For instance, Axel Witsel, from Zenit, Bakayoko, from Mónaco, or Tolisso, Olympique Lyonnais, are in the list.

“We have to respect our balance spreadsheet, but Juventus want to position among the best teams in the world and this will always be our ambitious goal”, Beppe Marotta, the sporting director, said recently.
