Liverpool have emerged as suitors for Rodriguez with the player’s long-term future shrouded in uncertainty. The Colombia international joined Bayern Munich on loan from Madrid in the summer and the player has proven to be a big hit at the Allianz Arena, propelling them to the top of the Bundesliga table. However, the player’s value means Bayern may be priced out of signing him permanently when his loan spell ends next year. Yet the Liverpool Echo say Liverpool, like Bayern, face a fight to sign the player on a permanent transfer. It is said they would need a good amount of time to negotiate with Real. Though the La Liga side were happy to cut him loose in the summer, his value remains high.
