Real Madrid have rejected Napoli’s first bid for Colombia international James Rodriguez according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
James Rodriguez wants to leave the Bernabeu and Real Madrid are looking for suitors who are willing to match their €50 million valuation of the former Bayern Munich star.
Carlo Ancelotti wants the player but Madrid are only interested in a cash offer and have rejected Napoli’s loan offer. This is because Florentino Perez wants James sold on a permanent deal.
James Rodriguez spent 2 seasons on loan to Bayern Munich but they failed to make the deal permanent.
Meanwhile, Ancelotti is in contact with James Rodriguez to make sure he ends up at Napoli when the summer transfer window closes.
