Jorge Mendes is not an easy agent to deal with. The Portuguese agent is reportedly trying to make Madrid sell players like Raphaël Varane and James Rodríguez and Los Blancos have had enough. The problem is that he is so powerful that Mendes could also be involved in some of the signings Real Madrid make this summer.
Apparently, both James and Varane are out of Madrid's transfer list, but it's true that they could be unsettled if a big offer comes their way given their lack of minutes this year, when they were expected to play a crucial role in Real's season.
Mendes is also Cristiano Ronaldo's agent, and rumors indicate that the Portuguese star could be trying to get yet another contract extension with Los Blancos, one that would go beyond his current deal, which expires in the summer of 2018.
James Rodríguez will likely be involved in plenty of rumors this next summer and Mendes could be behind them.
