James added to Real Madrid squad

Napoli and Atletico Madrid transfer target James Rodriguez has been given the Number 16 jersey at Real Madrid and added to the website.

The Colombia international had until now been notable by his absence in the gallery of players for the 2019-20 season.

He returned from a two-year loan at Bayern Munich and was expected to move on again this summer, but Napoli only wanted him on loan with option to buy, while the Merengues are reticent to hand over a talent to Atletico Madrid.

While reports continue that James is for sale at €42m, the player has now been added to the squad list on the official Real Madrid website.

He has been assigned shirt Number 16.
