In the summer of 2014, he came to Real for €80 million as of one of the best players in the World Championship, making him the third most expensive player in the history of the royal club.
Only Gareth Bale (100 million euros) and Cristiano Ronaldo (94 million) were paid more than him, while in the history of football, a bigger transfer from his, besides listed, were Paul Pogba‘s (105 million), Gonzalo Higuain‘s (90 million) and Luis Suarez‘s (82 million).
Three years later James Rodriguez has to go because Real doesn’t have a place for him anymore. Although it seemed like he would go to Manchester United, Spanish and French media appear to had contact with the player and his agent, Jorge Mendes, who say that he will sign with PSG who offered James €10 million per season.
Sergio Aguero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexis Sanchez, Kylian Mbappe were PSG’s desires, but they were never able to bring any of them.
James is 25 years old and is in his prime, so Real wants at least €70 million for him. PSG and Real are still yet to complete this transfer.
