James Rodriguez could end up joining Atletico de Madrid in the upcoming transfer window, as Simeone’s side will offer around €25 million to sign him away from Real Madrid, according to a report from Colombian newspaper El Universal. James was on Atletico’s radar in the summer of 2019 but ended up staying in Real Madrid, where he hasn’t been a relevant player this season.

His current deal with Los Blancos expires in 2021 but it’s clear that both the player and Real Madrid will try to part ways, given that the current situation doesn’t make much sense for a player of his caliber and reputation.
