Chelsea initiate contact for huge January signing, ‘dizzying offer’ awaited to complete deal

James Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Chelsea, with Antonio Conte said to keen on replacing Oscar with the Colombian.

The 25-year-old clearly isn’t first choice option for Zinedine Zidane, and a transfer is looking increasingly likely.

However, according to Spanish newspaper AS, Rodriguez would only arrive at Chelsea in January if the Premier League side make a ‘dizzying offer’.

AS say Chelsea want to sign Rodriguez in January, but Real Madrid are keen on keeping him until summer.

The London club are already in contact with Rodriguez’s representatives to know his situation, but could face some competition.

Reports in Italy suggest Juventus are also keen on signing Rodriguez, and it remains to be seen if Chelsea can convince Rodriguez to switch to England.

AS say Juventus are prepared to make a ‘juicy offer’, but don’t intend to do that in January, due to financial constraints.

Rodgriguez has managed just over 800 minutes of football this season, and has just 4 league starts to his name.
