Napoli are said to be in negotiations with Real Madrid to take James Rodriguez on loan with option to buy after his Bayern Munich spell.
According to Spanish paper As and Il Mattino in Italy, the player told Carlo Ancelotti that he would be very eager to make the move to the Stadio San Paolo.
Agent Jorge Mendes is already working on the terms of the deal, as James has no place at Real Madrid, even after his two-year loan with Bayern Munich at a cost of €13m.
The Germans had an option to buy for €42m, but have no intention of activating it.
