James Rodriguez seems to have no future at Real Madrid and is likely to leave the club in the summer transfer window. The 28-year-old has been pushed to the fringes and appears to have no primary role in Zidane’s plans for Real Madrid.
According to reports in AS (via Metro), the Colombian international has attracted interests from various clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Juventus and Napoli, while previous reports also suggested former Real Madrid gaffer Carlo Ancelotti is hopeful of convincing Los Blancos' outcast to join him at Premier League club, Everton.
If Juventus win the race for James, it would see him rejoin Cristiano Ronaldo. The duo were teammates at Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Napoli had attempted to sign the Colombian last season, but a deal did not come to fruition.
Nevertheless, there is also a suggestion James could be part of a deal with Manchester United that would see highly-rated French midfielder Paul Pogba join Real Madrid. The future of the French World cup winner continues to remain uncertain, and a move away from Old Trafford looks to be on cards. Real Madrid might use James Rodriguez as a makeweight to facilitate the deal.
The Merengues signed James Rodriguez ahead of the 2014-15 season, and the former AS Monaco star has won the UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup twice with Real Madrid, while also bagging the La Liga in 2016-17, among many other personal laurels.
