Premier League champions Chelsea’s interest in Real Madrid attacking midfielder James Rodriguez appears to be cooling after they baulked at the Spanish club’s valuation of him.

Madrid have put a £70 million price on Rodriguez and it is thought that Chelsea are unwilling to pay that much for him, given that he is only a fringe player at the Bernabeau.

Rodriguez has failed to nail down a starting spot at Madrid since his £63 million move from Monaco in 2014, and seems to have fallen out of favour under Zinedine Zidane –he didn’t even make the bench for the Champions League final.

It seems that Madrid may have to lower their valuation if they are to offload Rodriguez and reinvest in the squad.
