The Fresh Prince of Colombia, James Rodriguez kicked off a bit of a frenzy at the start of this week when he revealed that he’s considering offers to leave Real Madrid and then was spotted at the British Embassy back in Bogotá, presumably applying for a work visa.
While Real Madrid are attempting to play some token hardball — YOU CAN’T LEAVE NOW ... unless you want to — rumors of Chelsea’s supposed interest have taken a bit of a hit in the last 24 hours. Not many teams could afford to spent €70m+ on a player and if Chelsea are out, that leaves only Manchester United, probably. (Or maybe Juve?)
Here’s The Sun with just that story, with Chelsea baulking at the massive price tag and United looking to add him as if Pogba and Zlatan needed any more help.
Ol’e reliable Matt Law doesn’t seem to know much about it either, though he was in the dark quite famously about the David Luiz re-acquisition this summer as well.

Lots asking about James Rodriguez - Chelsea are his No 1 choice, he's been offered to PL clubs. But not sure real interest from CFC is there— Charlie Skillen (@charlieskillen) December 22, 2016
