According to the latest transfer news, Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez, who is loaned at Bayern Munich is bordering on Marco Reus territory in becoming the undying Liverpool transfer rumour with little chance of materialising.
The 26-year-old superstar has been regularly touted as a target for the Merseyside giants, without the club ever quite turning in his direction.
Colombia international signed for Real Madrid for £71m shortly after starring in the 2014 World Cup, but has since struggled to live up to his hefty price-tag among Los Blancos’ array of attacking talent.
Rodriguez’s stuttering progress saw the playmaker secure a two-year loan deal with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in 2017, where he has similarly found consistency difficult to come by.
As per the Diario Gol, the former AS Monaco ace is planning on cutting his deal in Germany short in aid of returning to Real Madrid and pursuing a move to Liverpool.
It is clearly understood that James Rodriguez is considered as the direct replacement of Philippe Coutinho, who has completed a sensational £142million move to Barcelona last January.
Monaco’s Thomas Lemar seemingly remains another top target, although there continues to be uncertainty surrounding his reported £90million price-tag.
