Sky: James set for Napoli

Sky Sport Italia is reporting Napoli only need Real Madrid to formally accept the terms of James Rodriguez’s transfer.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Madrid are prepared to let James join Napoli on loan with an option to buy.

Di Marzio explains his agent Jorge Mendes is currently in the Spanish capital, while the Partenopei are waiting for Madrid to give their definitive approval.

It is understood the 27-year-old has agreed to a season-long loan at the San Paolo, which includes a €30m right to purchase for the southerners.

ESPN Colombia announced on Twitter earlier that James would be a Napoli player, before taking down the post.
