Atletico to rival Napoli for Madrid’s James Rodriguez

James Rodriguez is set for a move this summer, with Napoli reportedly looking to secure the Madrid playmaker.

However, James could become an unlikely, but sensational move for Atletico Madrid, as the Spanish side are interested in a deal that will bring him to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Having moved on from Bayern Munich, James reportedly stated his interest to return to Real Madrid. However, Zinedine Zidane has no need for the player and will look to offload him this summer.

Napoli have been in touch with Real over a possible deal for James Rodriguez, with Carlo Ancelotti keen to reunite with the playmaker. The Serie A Giants have however been unsuccessful in the chase, revealing the Los Blancos are demanding too much for the Columbian.

According to Marca, It did look as if James would be on his way to Napoli, but the player has reigned in his interest in that move, as he is determined to push through a switch to Atletico.

Diego Simeone’s Atletico have splashed massive cash in securing Antoine Griezmann’s replacement in Joao Felix, and would surely be placing a stronger foot in hope to challenge on all front next season by securing James Rodriguez.

The Los Rojiblancos have little advantage over Napoli in the race for the playmaker, as reports claim James wants to stay and live in Madrid. However, Real Madrid are a major obstacle, as they don’t want to strengthen a rival, and would rather negotiate terms with Napoli over a deal for the player.
