Bayern Munich have given the green light to James Rodriguez’s departure, with Arsenal one of the clubs ready to welcome him, according to sensational claims in the Spanish media.

Spanish outlet Don Balon wrote that Bayern coach Niko Kovac ‘does not count’ on Rodriguez, and the club are willing to give the ‘green light’ to his departure.

Real Madrid would consider welcoming him back, but Arsenal, Juventus, Napoli and Liverpool are all interested too.


The same outlet then published an update saying that Arsenal had put a €70m ‘on the table’ and offered James a key role in their team.

Don Balon aren’t a reliable source of news, but the English media has nonetheless taken the claims and run with them.

The Daily Star write that Arsenal are ‘touted for James Rodriguez raid’, the Mirror say Arsenal are ‘interested in stunning £63m swoop’ for him.

Plenty of outlets are now reporting that Real Madrid have accepted the Arsenal bid, based solely on the Don Balon report.
