Bayern Munich striker James Rodriguez could continue his career in the Premier League next season.
Manchester United, Liverpool and even Arsenal have been linked with Real Madrid midfielder, who is currently on loan at Allianz Arena.
The German giants have an option to sign him permanently this summer and it would cost them 42m euros, or around £50m.
James has said he wants to return to Real Madrid, however, Zidane’s arrival at the Bernabeu may have scuppered that.
And if Bayern Munich don’t take up their option to buy, Real Madrid will seek to raise transfer fund by finding another buyer.
El Confidencial said Madrid would set their price 60 million euros, or around £70m – but would not sell for less than around 50 million euros, around £59m.
According to AS, the newspaper said:” Bayern have paid Real Madrid 6.5 million euros a year for each season (that James has been on loan in Munich), and if they want to keep him they will have to activate a purchase clause set at 42 million euros. If Bayern finally decides not to keep the player, Madrid will put him on the market for 60 million euros, an initial asking price that they won’t drop any lower than 50.”
