Despite ultimately staying at Real Madrid, apparently midfielder James Rodriguez could have moved to rival club, Atletico Madrid in the transfer market next summer. This was said by the player’s Stepfather, Juan Carlos Restrepo.
James Rodriguez’s name began to evaporate since performing brilliantly and became the top scorer at the 2014 World Cup with the Colombia national team. Thanks to that, he was recruited by Real Madrid from AS Monaco after the World Cup ended.
In his first two seasons, James became a mainstay of Real Madrid in midfield, but the situation has changed in the third season to date. The playmaker began to be forgotten, rarely played as a starter.
In fact, he had had a loan period with the German Bundesliga defending champion, Bayern Munchen for approximately two seasons. Unfortunately, the performance does not make Die Roten redeem his services permanently.
As a result, in the transfer market last summer James finally returned to the Santiago Bernabeu. Unfortunately, the situation has not changed in the second period with Madrid, he is still rarely relied on by manager Zinedine Zidane.
It might be disappointing, even though at the transfer market last summer James could have left the Santiago Bernabeu. Yes, he had received several attractive offers and this was justified by the player.
Now, it is Juan Carlos Restrepo’s turn as James’ Stepfather to justify the speculation. It’s just that, unlike his son who kept the interested clubs, Juan Carlos actually revealed that the team was Atletico Madrid.
James is interested in moving to Diego Simeone’s team, but Real Madrid is blocking his move.
