Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez is being linked with a move away from his club, AS Monaco, following his spectacular start to the World Cup, where he has five goals and three assists in four games. His agent on Wednesday claimed that several big clubs are interested in the 22-year-old, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Napoli.
“I can assure you that Real Madrid and Barcelona aren’t the only clubs who want him,” Rodriguez’s agent, Aytekin Erayabakan, told L’Equipe. “There’s Napoli of course, but I don’t want to name names. I’ll shut up now. In recent seasons his value has skyrocketed, so if someone wants to take him away from Monaco, they’ll have to spend upwards of €45m ($61.4 million).”
