Liverpool offered the chance to sign Real Madrid attacker – report
Liverpool are among the clubs to have been offered the chance to sign James Rodriguez this summer, say reports
Liverpool have been offered the chance to sign James Rodriguez from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Reds are among the teams to have been approached by Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes and told that the 25-year-old is available this summer.
However, the same report states that Liverpool are not willing to pay Real Madrid’s €75m (£66m) asking price for the attacker.
The story also claims that Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Inter Milan were all contacted by the Colombian’s representatives to be told that he is available for transfer this summer.
It is also claimed that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen to sell Rodriguez this summer but is unlikely to lower the Spanish club’s asking price.
Liverpool are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer, but the Reds have so far only concluded deals to sign Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke as Jurgen Klopp prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
