Real Madrid want Fabian in January

Real Madrid have surpassed Barcelona in the fight for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz and reportedly want him in January.

The 23-year-old is going from strength to strength since he made the €30m transfer from Real Betis in the summer of 2018.

He has now become a regular in the Spain XI and is repeatedly linked with a return to La Liga.

Barcelona had been the most intrigued, but Monday’s Marca front page claims Real Madrid are determined to snap him up as early as January.

Ancelotti: Madrid 'resisted' James sale

Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Real Madrid put up “too much resistance” for James Rodriguez and urged Milan to give Marco Giampaolo time.

Napoli were heavily linked with James throughout the summer, but a deal never took off as Madrid were not willing to send the Colombian back out on loan.

“With James, there was the will to sign him but we clashed with the resistance of Real Madrid,” Ancelotti told Radio Anch’io Sport.

James to Napoli all-but-off

James Rodriguez’s proposed move to Napoli is all-but-off after the Real Madrid midfielder suffered a calf injury.

James was a surprise starter for Madrid as they laboured to a 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid at the weekend.

However, the Colombian lasted just 57 minutes and Los Blancos announced on Monday that he picked up an injury to his right calf.

The injury is the 16th in the last three years for Rodriguez, which may explain their insistence on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Zidane: 'Happy if James stays'

Napoli transfer target James Rodriguez starts for Real Madrid today, as Zinedine Zidane would “be happy if he stayed.”

The Colombia international had been on the outskirts of the squad after returning from a two-season loan at Bayern Munich.

Atletico Madrid and Napoli were interested, but preferred a discount on the €42m asking price, or a loan with option to buy structure.

With other injuries, James climbed up the ranking and impressed the Coach in training, enough to be in the starting XI against Real Valladolid this evening.

The Partenopei have been pushing for James all summer, as he returned from a two-season loan at Bayern Munich seemingly without much chance of playing time.

Napoli would only offer to take him on loan with option to buy, whereas Real Madrid wanted €42m.

James only on Real Madrid bench

Napoli transfer target James Rodriguez was on the Real Madrid bench today, but didn’t even warm up during a 3-1 win over Celta Vigo.

The Colombia international returned to base after a two-year loan at Bayern Munich and was expected to leave this summer, but the Partenopei refused to pay €42m.

Napoli target James off the market?

James Rodriguez might not leave Real Madrid after an Eden Hazard injury, leaving Napoli and Atletico Madrid high and dry.

The Colombia international just returned to the Bernabeu after a two-year loan spell with Bayern Munich.

Nobody has so far met the €42m asking price, as Napoli were determined to only get him on loan with option to buy, while Real Madrid were unhappy at the idea of selling to rivals Atleti.

It was confirmed today that summer signing Hazard has suffered a muscular tear and could therefore be out for four to six weeks.

Zidane: James in Madrid plans

Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Napoli target James Rodriguez is in his Real Madrid plans. “He’s fit and I’m glad he’s in the squad.”

James struggled to catch a break during Zidane’s first tenure as Madrid boss and spent the last two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich.

He chose not to make his spell permanent and was expected to join Napoli, but Los Blancos’ failure to sign Paul Pogba has seemingly kept the midfielder in Spain.

Napoli: Madrid to keep James?

Napoli have been dealt a blow for James Rodriguez as it is alleged Real Madrid will not sell him if they cannot sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

Deals for James and Pogba are proving hard to come by, with Napoli insisting on a loan deal for the former and United pricing Madrid out of the later.

United are in a position of power with regards to the Frenchman as the English transfer window has already closed and the Red Devils are under no pressure to sell.
