Arsenal ready to break the bank for £50m-rated Real Madrid star James Rodriguez

Arsenal are keen on signing £50m-rated Real Madrid star James Rodriguez this summer in a move that would smash the club’s transfer record.

Rodriguez, 25, wants to leave the Bernabeu after falling out of favour under Zinedine Zidane last season.

The Colombian moved to the La Liga giants in a £63m move after his stunning World Cup campaign in 2014 but he hasn’t seen eye to eye with Zidane since the Frenchman was made Madrid boss 18 months ago.

Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder but Arsenal have now joined the hunt for his signature, according to the Mirror.

Arsenal broke their club transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil in a £42.5m deal from Madrid in 2013 but they’ll need to break it again if they wish to bag Rodriguez this summer.

Madrid value the Colombian at around £50m and, ironically, the La Liga club will use the funds generated from Rodriguez’s sale to fund a move for Arsenal target Kylian Mbappe.
