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 from a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich.
But the 28-year-old has struggled with injuries since his return to Spain and is said to be looking for a way out.
Real are looking to recoup the £71million they paid Monaco for the playmaker but Mendes is looking to get that figure down to make the move happen.
The Molineux club have a very close link with Mendes and his GestiFute firm currently boasts some of football’s biggest names as clients.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Ederson are three of his most famous charges.
But his special relationship with Wolves stretches a little further with six of his players currently plying their trade under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, Rui Patricio Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto and Joao Moutinho all call Mendes their agent.
Rodriguez has made just 13 LaLiga appearances for Los Blancos this season bagging just one goal and two assists.
