Real Madrid reject Arsenal and Inter Milan offers for James Rodriguez

0

The Colombia international, 25, moved to the Bernabeu from Monaco in 2014 after starring at the World Cup in Brazil.

But he’s struggled to hit those heights during his three-year stint in Spain and looks to be on the way out this summer.

Zinedine Zidane underlined Rodriguez’s fringe status by leaving him out of Real Madrid’s squad for last weekend’s Champions League final.

And reports in Spain suggest two European giants have already reacted to that high-profile snub by lodging offers with the La Liga champions. El Chiringuito De Jugones journalist Jose Luis Sanchez claims Arsenal, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich are in the hunt for Rodriguez.

And he revealed on the show that Arsenal and Inter Milan have launched bids to price him away from Real Madrid. Their proposals are said to fall short of the £69.8m (€80m) price tag Florentino Perez has slapped on Rodriguez and have been rejected.

Arsene Wenger’s hopes of luring the playmaker to London may be boosted by David Ospina’s presence at the Emirates though. Rodriguez is his team-mate at international level and he is also married to the Arsenal goalkeeper’s sister, Daniela. Aside from the former Porto star, the Gunners have been linked with swoops for Kylian Mbappe, Alexandre Lacazette and Jean Seri.
