According to Spanish news outfit Marca, Real Madrid-owned attacking-midfielder James Rodriguez has now obtained a Spanish passport, but Los Blancos chief Zinedine Zidane still wants shot of the Colombian.
The 27-year-old is one of the finest creative wingers in the game, and if Madrid truly want to sell the Colombia international, there will not be a shortage of potential suitors.
Rodriguez, who is nearing the end of his two-year loan deal with Bayern Munich, is approaching his peak in terms of his development as a footballer, and he would be ideal for Tottenham.
According to a report from the Independent, Madrid are lining up a £100 million summer swoop for Christian Eriksen, and whilst Spurs will not want to lose the Dane, they might find it hard to reject that kind of bid, especially considering the fact that he has just over one year remaining on his current contract.
And Rodriguez possesses all of the attributes needed to help fill the void that would be left behind, should Eriksen leave the north London outfit.
The Colombian possesses exceptional technical ability, has pace in abundance, and would help provide a real cutting edge to Tottenham’s attacking play.
He has chalked up 103 goals and 123 assists in 371 career appearances thus far – really impressive numbers for a winger.
Spanish media outlet El Confidencial claims that Madrid are willing to sell the 27-year-old for around £51 million, and in today’s day and age, that would surely represent excellent value for money for Tottenham.
Rodriguez is undoubtedly one of the game’s current superstars, and he would be a real statement signing for Spurs, should they lose one of their key players this summer.
