TRANSFER BATTLE! Juventus join Chelsea and Manchester United in chase for frustrated Real Madrid star James Rodriguez

Juventus have joined Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign wantaway Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

The Colombia international has made just 13 La Liga starts for Los Blancos this season and has fallen out of favour under new boss Zinedine Zidane.

Rodriguez is expected to depart the Bernabeu this summer, with a number of heavyweight clubs in Europe queuing up to land him.

However, according to Calciomercato, Real won’t accept anything less than £60million for the 24-year-old, a price tag which may prove to be too high for Juve.

Although, the Italian club may have the ability to financially compete with the likes of Chelsea and United for the playmaker if they decide to sell Paul Pogba.

Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly told owner Roman Abramovich to make signing Rodriguez his top priority in the summer, while United are also prepared to enter a bidding war for the player.
