Madrid drop James & Mariano

Real Madrid have dropped Serie A targets James Rodriguez and Mariano Diaz for their friendly with Red Bull Salzburg later.

Marca reports Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane ‘isn’t counting’ on the pair, despite their inclusion in preseason training.

James’ omission will inevitably revive links with Napoli, who reportedly have a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a loan deal for the Colombian after August 15.

ADL: 'Napoli evaluating many names'

Aurelio De Laurentiis assures Napoli are “evaluating many names other than James Rodriguez, Hirving Lozano and Mauro Icardi,” but has no Nicolas Pepe regrets.

“We are evaluating many names other than James Rodriguez, Lozano and Icardi,” the President told Sky Sport Italia.

“So much so that I made a large offer for Pepe, but we were unable to get him. Arsenal have five times the revenue of Napoli, so they will have simply offered him more money. Never mind, we’ll find another Pepe.

Napoli get James Rodriguez deadline

Real Madrid have reportedly agreed to send James Rodriguez to Napoli on loan with option to buy if they can’t complete a €42m sale by August 15.

The news comes from La Repubblica and the Corriere dello Sport newspapers, after Fenerbahce saw their approach shot down immediately by the player.

Atletico Madrid are also beginning to realise James has his heart set on Napoli and are pulling back on their offer, particularly as Real Madrid do not want to reinforce a direct Liga rival.

Release clause for Lozano?

Napoli target Hirving Lozano has a €42m release clause in his PSV Eindhoven contract, claim reports, as talks with Mino Raiola continue.

The Mexico international had been one of the first names on Carlo Ancelotti’s list this summer, but is coming back around after problems with other options such as Nicolas Pepe and James Rodriguez.

PSV Eindhoven were knocked out of the Champions League preliminary round last night by FC Basel, which makes it much more likely they’ll sell Lozano.

Zidane: 'Don't know if James stays'

Zinedine Zidane admits he doesn’t know “if James Rodriguez is going to be at Real Madrid next season” amid Napoli and Atletico Madrid interest.

“I don't know if James is going to be in Madrid next season,” Zidane told reporters after an Audi Cup defeat to Tottenham.

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.

Roma and Monaco want Mariano Diaz

Roma and Monaco are battling for Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz, claim reports in France and Spain.

The Dominican centre-forward turns 26 this week and Real Madrid bought him from Olympique Lyonnais for €21.5m only a year ago.

He put together 22 competitive appearances in a Madrid jersey, scoring four goals, but hasn’t played a single minute of pre-season friendlies.
