James Rodriguez surprised everyone after Real Madrid's 4-2 win in the Club World Cup Final when he said that he's considering a move away from Real Madrid, also adding that he has "offers and seven days to think about the situation."

Manchester United, Chelsea, PSG, Juventus and Inter Milan are the clubs interested in James and ready to submit an offer, according to reports from Spain.

While United already tried to sign James before they completed their move for Paul Pogba this summer, the red devils would apparently be willing to sell Anthony Martial to make room for the Colombian midfielder this very same winter.

Chelsea, on the other hand, would be willing to offer close to €90 million, according to the Daily Star. Abramovic's club just sold Brazilian midfielder Oscar and that certainly gave them enough money to afford James this winter, although it's true that Conte's team is playing well enough that they don't need a big move.

PSG have been performing poorly lately and James could be an upgrade. They also have more than enough money to sign the Colombian midfielder, so the French club seems like a reasonable candidate to acquire James this winter.

All in all, it seems that James will be leaving Real Madrid very soon. He is not getting minutes lately and he's too good —and expensive— of a player to be sitting on the bench more often than not, so it would be wise for Los Blancos to part ways with him if Zidane is not going to give him enough chances.
