Wolves ‘looking at shock £71m transfer deal for Real Madrid”

Wolves are considering a shock £71million move for Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, it has been claimed.

Super-agent Jorge Mendes represents the Colombian and the Midlands club are looking to capitalise on their relationship with the Portuguese.

Rodriguez has struggled for game time since he returned to the Bernabeu in the summer after a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich.

Injuries have hampered Rodriguez since his return to Spain and the 28-year-old is said to be looking for a way out.

And Wolves have made contact with Mendes in the hope of bringing him to the Midlands, according to El Desmarque in Spain.

Real are looking to recoup the £71million they paid Monaco for the playmaker but Mendes is looking to get that figure down to give Wolves a chance.
