Real Madrid star James Rodriguez could be the last minute purchase of AC Milan reports Alfredo Pedulla. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder is on the market for a fee of €42million.
MILAN TRANSFER NEWS – James Rodriguez to AC Milan, this could be the surprising signing during the last days of the summer transfer window. Transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla reports that the Colombian star could be the last minute purchase of the Rossoneri .
For a long time James was a transfer target of Napoli and Atletico Madrid. But both clubs failed to reached an agreement with Real Madrid and have focused their attention on other names.
James Rodriguez returned from a two-year loan at Bayern Munich. The German giants opted against his signing on a permanent deal. He has returned under Zidane’s orders but is not part of his plans despite a fist minute start in the last league match. He suffered an injury against Valladolid but nothing serious and is expected to return on the pitch after three weeks.
The Rossoneri management have become frustrated with Atletico Madrid’s stubbornness in their talks for Correa. In this few remaining days of the summer transfer window Boban and Maldini are looking at a number of alternative names that don’t cost more than €40 million.
James Rodriguez was offered to AC Milan in the early days of the summer but the club refused his signing at that time. The Colombia international can adapt in each of Giampaolo’s formations because he plays both as winger and attacking midfielder. Another Real Madrid player that continues to be linked with AC Milan is Mariano Diaz.
