James Rodriguez will reportedly leave Real Madrid and join the Premier League this January during the Winter Transfer window.
Columbian midfielder James Rodriguez burst on to the scene with a fantastic showing in the 2014 World Cup. His performance caught the attention of Real Madrid who bought him into their folds. Since then however, Rodriguez has struggled for game time.
There is no denying Rodriguez’s talents. However, he has struggled to break into the playing XI consistently during his stay in the Spanish Capital and has made only 9 appearances this season with the last of them coming 2 months ago.
The midfielder was one of the few players that manager Zinedine Zidane tried to offload in the summer and it seems that he is set to leave the club in January with a shock move to the Premier League to reunite with his former manager for the third time.
