James Rodríguez is considering a move away from Real Madrid after receiving interest from several Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea, according to reports from Spain.

His future role with Real is not clear after being a reserve under Zinedine Zidane last season, so he might be ready to leave and become the relevant player he once was. Real Madrid will not sell the player for less than €80 million, the fee they paid two summers ago when the playmaker left Monaco after the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Zidane, James, and possibly Florentino Pérez will meet in the upcoming days to discuss James' future in the club. If he is unsettled about his role and Zidane believes that it will be hard for him to start, Los Blancos will finally accept to move him away from the club in order to recover the money they invested on his talents two years ago.
