Is James Rodriguez really moving to the Premier Fantasy League?
James Rodriguez really made a name for himself at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil after dominating proceedings for his national side Colombia. And now he could join your Premier Fantasy League team very soon!Six goals in Colombia’s progression to the quarter finals was enough to secure Rodriguez the coveted Golden Boot and also a place in Fifa’s all-star World Cup team.The most insane goal and his most famous one you will remember:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u38anDC5v2IThe performances from Rodriguez earned him the move to Real Madrid in 2014 for about 80€ Million from Monaco. Around 60 games and 20 goals later but some injury problems and time on the bench led to rumours that the Colombian could join the Premier League very soon.It’s fair to say his Real Madrid side are flying in the Primera Division this season; And with Rodriguez seemingly surplus to requirements in Zidane’s set-up, the midfielder may have to look for pastures new should he want first-team football.
So which clubs might be interested in James Rodriguez service?
As you may know Oscar moved to Chinese Super League (Shanghai SIPG) for around €55 Million. Cesc Fabregas could join him soon as well in the next summer transfer period. So the Midfield of Chelsea is a bit weak after that.
Rodriguez strength as an attacking midfielder or even a winger could provide solid options for Conte. Diego Costa could also need some support from the colombian wonderkid.
At the end of the summer transfer window there were reports that Chelsea got him an offer for the last transfer period in the summer. But for whatever reason the move failed. That said, it would be absolutly no surprise if Conte were to renew his interest in the colombian either in January or in the summer.
Like Chelsea Arsenal tried really hard to transfer Rodriguez in the summer, and maybe after the mess with Alexis Sanchez and Özils contracts, they will try it again soon. If Sanchez or Özil (or both) are leaving Arsenal, this could be THE point for Rodriguez. Normally Arsenal is a club with low-risk transfers. They have a really strict policy and you can see that Rodriguez isn´t cheap at all.
Many reports told us that there was an offer for about €75 million last summer. But he rejected at all after some Manchester United managers was meeting up with Real Madrid. Probably you won´t be able to draft him in your Premier Fantasy League team for Manchester United next year 😉Overall you can tell that Chelsea FC is the most likely club in the Premiership for getting James Rodriguez finally. No other club has to offer that much stability right now for him. If he decides to move to England to play in the EPL, Chelsea is going to be his club.
Right now we are really excited to see what will happen next. We would love to see him play for the EPL and able to pick him into our Fantasy League team next season.What are you thinking about it? Tell us in the comments!Your www.FantasyXL.com Team
