Tottenham named as one of the clubs interested in Real Madrid outcast

By Bruce Grove -

The Daily Mail claims that Tottenham is one of several English teams interested in signing Real Madrid outcast, James Rodriguez.

The Colombian has been axed from the Real Madrid starting XI for a long time now and he played only a handful of games in the last campaign following two seasons away on loan at Bayern Munich.

He has been at Real Madrid for the last six years, but it seems that this will finally be his last season on the Spanish side.

Zinedine Zidane has never been his fan and the Frenchman will be more than happy to let him leave the Bernabeu this summer.

Spurs are looking to overhaul their team in this transfer window and a little bit of star name addition will be appreciated.

Rodriguez was the star of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and his performances for Colombia earned him his big-money move to Spain.

He has failed to live up to the expectations so far, but he might need a change of environment to get back to his brilliant best.

He has his eye on a move to England as he explained in a podcast recently when he said, as quoted by Mail Online:

‘I’ve already been in several good leagues and the only thing missing is Serie A and the Premier League. You have to see where I want to go or where they want me to go, 

‘Going to England would be a good thing, it’s a top league.’

Reguilon of Real would be ideal.
What a waste Banega going to Saudi,obviously the money.He’s on a free,however they don’t even know when their league will start because of COVID which is bad there..
I seem to remember Jose has always been a big fan,could we not tempt him with 1 year +1 option.I know he’s 32,but he’s still miles better on the creative side than anything we currently have.

Covid seems to have smacked some sense into some big clubs around how much they are paying their players. All well and good if the money is rolling in but in these austere times the money is drying up (unless your owner has oil wells). Bale is the perfect example – he will single-handedly bleed Madrid dry if they can’t get him to move on. Reality check for all concerned and maybe time to re-evaluate the monetary side of the game for players and agents (and a certain chairman). Can’t understand why clubs have to pay agents if the agent is working for the player. Surely that cost is the player’s? Unless the club contacts the agent for the player’s services perhaps? Good to see that the Premier League took care of all the current and former Sky cabal clubs now in the Top 6. Awfully decent of Chavski to lose to Arsanal in the Cup final, thereby giving the Goons the additional revenue from European football (and the added bonus of 3 extra games for Spurs to play to qualify). Got to keep the money coming in for the richer clubs. Have to feel sorry for the smaller clubs – they’re on their own.

Ooh, potential glamour signing slightly more realistic than Bale.

Still can’t see it.

Wages?…Levy: “how much”, I’ll give you 100k pw”…..Rod: “ok, that covers my agent, but what do I get?”

Yeah going to the Premier League would be very good, for his bank balance.
