James Rodriguez has reportedly asked to leave Real Madrid, and the Blancos hierarchy are keen to secure a quick sale for the Colombia international in the next couple of months, rather than lose the attacking midfielder for nothing in the summer of 2021.

Marca says there is no shortage of suitors for James, with both Napoli and Atletico Madrid being credited with a long-term interest in the 28-year-old.

However, the Spanish outlet believes that a move to the Premier League is more likely, with Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers all believed to be keen on bringing the player to England.

One potential stumbling block amidst the pandemic is the playmaker's wages, with James taking home more than €7 million a year -- a figure that will likely put more prudent clubs out of the race this summer.
