Manchester City transfer news: Jorge Mendes to hold talks with Real Madrid concerning James Rodriguez amid Citizens interest
The agent of James Rodriguez, Jorge Mendes, is set to discuss the Real Madrid playmaker’s future with the club’s president next week – amid interest from Arsenal and Manchester City.
James has endured a difficult second campaign at the Bernabeu due to a number of niggling injuries which has had a negative impact on his form.
According to El Confidencial, Mendes has scheduled a meeting with Real president Florentino Perez next week to try reach an agreement on the Colombian’s future.
Arsenal were linked with a move for James last summer, while City are also understood to be ready to submit a mega-money offer should the 24-year-old become available.
James joined Real from Monaco in 2014 after starring at the World Cup in Brazil that year and enjoyed a stellar first season in the Spanish capital, scoring 17 goals in 46 games.
