Juventus will try to Sign Real Madrid Midfielder in January


Italian giants Juventus are top of the table in the Serie A, having lost only two games in the domestic league against both Milan teams. However, in Europe the team is struggling and they are second in their group behind Sevilla after failing to beat at home both Sevilla and Olympique Lyonnais.

Although the team is in a good position, the Vecchia Signora is trying to improve the quality of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad. For this reason, the Italian giants are targetting James Rodríguez for the winter transfer window. According to the Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport, the current Serie A champion would like to sign the Colombian playmaker as soon as possible.

Juventus know that James Rodríguez is not completely happy in Real Madrid. The Colombian was having minutes in the last games, especially after Modric or Casemiro got injured. However, James had some muscular problems and Zidane is trusting Isco more. The Spanish midfielder played in the starting eleven against Betis, Alavés or Leganés, the last three games in La Liga.

James Rodríguez has now left Spain to join Colombian national team to help them qualify to the Russian World Cup. Every time he plays for Pekérman’s side, the midfielder shows his quality and speak about the few opportunities he’s enjoying with Zidane on the bench. He has only participated in 5 league games, only starting two games -Espanyol and Villarreal- and scoring one goal -Espanyol-.

James Rodríguez was about to leave Real Madrid in summer but he finally decided to stay and fight for a place in the team. He has done some good performances every time he’s got the chance, but Zidane doesn’t trust the Colombian. James even said to the press that Inter Milan wanted to sign him in summer. Perhaps this time is the other Italian giants, Juventus, who come to Madrid to sign him.

Juventus bosses Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici have good relationships with Real Madrid, especially after the deal with Álvaro Morata, so they have an open line with Florentino Pérez. According to the Italian press, if James Rodríguez deal fails, Juventus can try to bring back to Italy Marco Verratti, the PSG midfielder who has also been linked to Los Blancos in the past.
