Liverpool linked with possible £43m Real Madrid transfer swoop

James Rodriguez

Liverpool are willing to pay Real Madrid up to £43million to secure the transfer of James Rodríguez, claim reports originating from Spain.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is reportedly wanted by Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp who, if you believe the latest suggestions, is going to be spending with ‘real intent’ this summer.

Rodríguez, who is one of those players who is continually linked with us, is surplus to requirements at the Bernabéu having fallen out of favour with boss Zinedine Zidane.

It has been claimed that Rodríguez could switch to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard going in the other direction but it’s been mooted that only Liverpool would be willing to accept Real Madrid’s valuation of the Colombian (54 caps).
