Insider provides update on £60million striker's move to Chelsea and it's good news for Blues fans


Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has confirmed that Real Madrid are ready to sell striker James Rodriguez.

Recent reports have claimed that Chelsea are ready to offer £60.1million to secure the services of the Colombia international.

Balague has confirmed that the Spanish giants would not reject such an important offer but is not convinced the Blues are ready to offer that much to sign the 25-year-old.

"Real Madrid will be happy to let James go this summer," Balague told Sky Sports.

"It's been reported Chelsea are willing to pay €70m [£60.1m] for the Colombia international.

"We will see if they are willing to pay that sort of money, but it sounds to me that Real are leaking this story to attract interest in the player.

"He's not worth that money and I'm pretty sure Chelsea know that."
