Real Madrid leave out James

Napoli are still in the running for James Rodriguez after he was left out of Real Madrid’s squad photographs.

The injury to Marco Asensio led to suggestions James would remain at the Bernabeu this season, following a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich.

He just returned from an extended vacation due to Copa America duty with Colombia and was therefore left out of the Audi Cup squad for this week.

However, a bigger signal was sent when Real Madrid released the official photographs of their squad for the 2019-20 season and James was notably absent.

Gareth Bale is in there after his transfer to Jiangsu Suning was abandoned at the last minute.

Napoli and Atletico Madrid are both hoping to pick up James Rodriguez this summer, although Real Madrid will only accept €42m cash.

The Partenopei have been clear they’ll only take him on loan with option to buy.
