Real Madrid place €50m price on James Rodriguez

Real Madrid are prepared to sell playmaker James Rodriguez for €50m this summer should he return from Bayern Munich, say El Confidencial.

The Colombian is entering the final months of a two-year loan deal at the Bavarian club but has appeared to say that he is open to a return to Madrid this summer.

The German champions are said to hold a €35m option to sign him permanently but various reports have clarified they will now seek other options and allow the temporary deal to expire.

The creative midfielder joined Bayern in the summer of 2017 on a two-year loan deal from Madrid but reports suggested he had fallen out of favour under new boss Niko Kovac.

The former Porto and Monaco star spent three seasons at Los Blancos, helping them to two European titles, but started just 13 La Liga games in his final campaign.
