Real Madrid Asking for 42 million euros
Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli is in Madrid to finalise a deal for James Rodriguez.
Real Madrid are asking for 42 million euros for the Colombian, but Napoli want to initially take him on loan with an option to buy later.
“Our idea is to play with quality, this team is used to playing this type of football,” Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti said recently.
“James is a player that I know very well and he brings a lot of quality. Unfortunately, he’s not a Napoli player at the moment.”
An official announcement is expected to come on Tuesday, with Real Madrid having already decided to sell the player this summer.
For now, James continues to be on holiday after playing for Colombia at the Copa America, waiting for Napoli, Real Madrid and agent Jorge Mendes to agree terms.
