Arsenal is one of the teams that are interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder, James Rodriguez, according to Marca.
The Colombian has been unwanted at the club for the past three seasons and he played less than 20 league games for them in the last campaign after a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich ended.
The midfielder now faces another season of uncertainty and the report claims that both the player and the club are more than happy to part ways.
Los Blancos has set a 25 million euros asking price for the 2014 World Cup best player.
That fee isn’t a huge problem for the likes of Arsenal and Lazio who want to sign him, rather the problem is his wages.
The report claims that while all the teams are prepared to pay Madrid’s asking price, they want him to halve his current wage demands before they can take him on.
Mikel Arteta has been busy looking at valuable players that he can add to his current Arsenal team.
The Spaniard knows that he will need some experienced players who know what it means to win before he can take the club to the next level and Rodriguez might just have the star quality that he wants.
Please god no.
what he said ^
This by far the best option for Arsenal. Because I am going to be honest. I think Arteta can get the best out of him. And he is hungry to prove himself. He would be the best transfer business for Arsenal for the whole summer. Because he is the only player that Arsenal are mentioning, that has any value for the money. Because if he gets back to his old self. Arsenal would be fighting for the league next season guaranteed. I know that a lot of people are going to disagree with me. But if you look at the numbers he had before. If he gets that back, then he is the best signing of any team or player this summer. Him and the top 2, would absolutely go through everything. But as usual, people at Arsenal doesn’t see reality.
We wont be getting James.
only is Ozil go
Not this Rodriguez thing again, all these supposed comings and goings are doing my head in. First we’ve signed Gabriel then we haven’t, then we’ve supposedly offered Auba a contract and then he says he hasn’t been offered one yet. Why are all our transfers and signings like mini sagas.
This limp dishrag is the new Benzema apparently. He had a great world cup in 2014), but has done absolutely nothing since, despite being at different teams in different leagues.
Fart in the wind comes to mind, here for a tick, and then no more. Hard pass on a “never was” type player.
James Is like ozil but with better shooting and less vision…he is equaly lazy and i heard him said that he would consider go to mexico and play there because there are a lot of money….and he is what? 28 years old? That shows how ambicious he is…
I dont want him near arsenal
Would be good addition
No, better value in the market than Rodriguez!
