Although he finally survived and underwent the 2019/20 campaign this season with Real Madrid, but James Rodriguez admitted that he had received several attractive offers last summer.
During the past two seasons, the Colombian playmaker has been on loan with Bayern Munich. However, during that period he also failed to convince Die Roten to buy it permanently last summer.
Thus, James then decided to return to the Santiago Bernabeu. Not without choice, the former FC Porto player actually found some interesting offers in the transfer market last summer.
“Yes, the news is indeed true,” James said to Gol Caracol.
In fact, there is one offer that came from the Spanish La Liga club, only Real Madrid refused to release James to the club which he kept secret.
“I got a very good offer from one of the Spanish clubs, but Real Madrid decided to reject the offer. I myself am reluctant to reveal the name of the club. ” He said.
In fact, at that time James was very close to his move to the club in question, but Real Madrid did not allow it.
“At that time I felt the transfer was almost over, but they did not allow me to join the club. They want me to join another club. ” He continued.
Certainly not only that offer received by the former AS Monaco player. As a top scorer in the 2014 World Cup, James also received many attractive offers. However, this 28-year-old figure feels less comfortable with these offers.
“I got an offer from Italy, but their offer was not able to convince me. I feel confident about the offer. ”
“My agent, Jorge Mendes, said there was an offer from China, but I said that I did not want to go. I don’t want to go there because I know I can still play in Europe,” he said.
Staying at Real Madrid does not seem to be the right decision, James rarely gets the chance to appear. No doubt, the Colombian national team player is believed to be leaving this summer.
