The Two Premier League Teams That Will Try To Sign James Rodriguez

James Rodriguez

James Rodriguez'future is still up in the air, as the Colombian is set to become a Real Madrid player once again at the end of the season when his loan spell at Bayern Munchen comes to an end.

The Colombian wasn't a part of Zinedine Zidane's plans during his first stint at Real Madrid, so Carlo Ancelotti welcomed him with open arms while in charge of the Bavarians. Nonetheless, he's fallen out of Niko Kovac's pecking order right now.

The 27-year-old is not likely to be welcomed by Zidane either, but the German side has no interest whatsoever in triggering his buy clause, so Los Blancos need to find him a new home as soon as possible.

James has been unwanted at Bayern Munchen ever since he tried to force a move back to Santiago Bernabeu to play for Julen Lopetegui, and Niko Kovac has kind of resented him from that day forward. Also, he's vastly underperformed as of late when given the chance to impress the Croatian.

The playmaker has been linked with a move to the English Premier League earlier on his career, so perhaps it's time that finally winds up happening, with Chelsea and Manchester United reportedly interested in his services, according to The Sun.

That's why his future may be in the Premier League, with Chelsea trying to find a suitable replacement for Eden Hazard, should the winger complete his dream move to Real Madrid in the summer.

Manchester United, on the other hand, is keen to get rid of Alexis Sanchez and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could really welcome his playmaking skills to try and get the Red Devils back to their old dominant self, especially if they end up letting Paul Pogba go.

James is still quite young and has a lot left in the tank, but he needs to go to a team that actually values his talents and offers him the chance to be back at his best.
