Napoli Complete Loan Deal For Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez

Italian side, Napoli, have completed a loan deal for Real Madrid outcast, James Rodriguez.


The deal is said to be worth more than £89 million, which includes including wages, signing-on fees and future transfer fee, a report says.

Italian newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, reports that the move has been confirmed, but both clubs are silent on the deal for now.

Rodriguez has spent the past two seasons on loan atBayern Munich, after falling out of favour at the club. He reportedly told the Bavarians he didn’t want to stay, when they asked to make the food permanent.

The deal has reunited the Colombian with his former boss, Carlo Ancelotti, in Italy.

Rodriguez made 111 appearances and scored 36 goals for Real Madrid, after joining for £63 million from Monaco in 2014.

While he returned to the Spanish giants after his loan deal expired with the Bavarians  last season, Zinedine Zidane’s moves for Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard means that Rodriguez is no longer in his plans.

According to Daily Mail, Real had hoped to sell the 27-year-old permanently, but were unable to find a club willing to pay the transfer fee and wages required.
