Allan: 'James welcome, Sarri is not'

James option depends on Napoli Scudetto

More details are emerging on Napoli’s deal with Real Madrid for James Rodriguez, on loan with option to buy, but obligation if they win the Scudetto.

The Colombia international has just completed a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich, who won’t take up their €40m option to make the move permanent.

There is no room for him at the Bernabeu under Zinedine Zidane, so Carlo Ancelotti is eager to reunite with the creative midfielder in Naples.

Madrid 'swap James for Neymar'

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to sacrifice Napoli target James Rodriguez for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.

Negotiations to take James to Napoli are thought to be in the final stages, but Mundo Deportivo claims he could yet be PSG-bound.

That is because Madrid are preparing a mega offer of €130m plus the Colombian or Gareth Bale for Neymar.

However, the newspaper believes a return to Barcelona remains the Brazilian’s priority.
