ESPN: James joining Napoli

ESPN Colombia is reporting Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez will be a Napoli player next season.

The Colombian edition of the broadcasting giant tweeted on Tuesday afternoon: “James has a new club!

“After passing through Bayern Munich and not finding space at Real Madrid, the Colombian will go on loan to Napoli!”

It comes after Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio claimed last night that Madrid had agreed to let the 27-year-old join Napoli on loan with an option to buy.

The Partenopei could pay €10m to take him for the season and reserve the right to purchase for somewhere in the region of €30-40m.
