Agent: 'Hope for best James solution'

Agent Jorge Mendes said he hopes “we find the best solution for the club and player,” as Napoli target James Rodriguez remains at Real Madrid.

The Colombia international is back training with Zinedine Zidane’s team after Copa America duty and his two-season loan at Bayern Munich.

He is a known target for Napoli and Atletico Madrid, but Real Madrid have been unable to agree terms.

“I am not the one who decides these things. You’d have to ask (Real Madrid President) Florentino Perez,” Jorge Mendes told Radio Marca.

“He is a professional, we’ll see what happens, but I really don’t know. I hope we find the best solution for the club and player.”

Real Madrid want €42m for James, whereas Napoli are only prepared to take him on loan with option to buy.
