The 28 year old midfielder has started just four La Liga games since returning from a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich last summer.

He is reportedly not liked by Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and looks set to leave Real Madrid this summer.

The Colombian international has just one year left on his Real Madrid contract.

Meanwhile, former Newcastle striker Faustino Asprilla has urged Rodriguez to join Chelsea.

Speaking to RCN, he said: “James does not have to go to suffer at Wolverhampton, a team that always fights after relegation.

“James has football to be on teams like Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal.

“James does not need to play for Real Madrid to dazzle us here with his football. For me he is a starter in any team.”
