Cordoba: 'Man Utd didn't understand Lukaku'

Ivan Cordoba believes Manchester United ‘did not understand’ Romelu Lukaku’s potential, while he hopes James Rodriguez can move to Inter too.

The Nerazzurri legend spoke to the Daily Mail section Sportsmail about the strong impression that players like Lukaku and Ashley Young are making at San Siro.

“Lukaku is an extraordinary player. Manchester United did not understand the player's potential and his last season was bad for him. In my opinion Lukaku is proving everyone to be a champion,” said Cordoba.

Juve in for James?

Juventus could make a move for Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez this summer, according to a Spanish report.

Rodriguez had been heavily linked with a move to Napoli last summer, with then boss Carlo Ancelotti a known admirer of the Colombian.

However a deal failed to materialise, and Napoli went on to sign Mexican winger Hirving Lozano instead.

Website Fichajes.com reports that the Bianconeri could make a summer move for James, who will turn 29-years-old in July.

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.
