Real Madrid star desperate to replace Philippe Coutinho next summer

Liverpool’s search for Philippe Coutinho has drawn the attention of some of the world’s best players including Real Madrid Star, James Rodriguez.

Since the sale of Coutinho, Liverpool have been linked with moves for the likes of AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez among others. But the Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp dismissed their chances of signing a replacement for the Brazilian last month, claiming they wanted to use player already at their disposal.

However, the Reds would certainly be making signings in the summer with Naby Keita already signed on from RB Leipzig, and James Rodriguez was to do a Coutinho.

Coutinho joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5 million in the winter of 2013 primarily to save his career, he went on to rebuild his career and joined Barcelona last month.

Rodiguez is similarly out of favour at Real Madrid and has been shipped out on loan to Bayern Munich. He returns after this season and wants to join Liverpool.

Liverpool have not made any contact with Real Madrid about his signing yet, but the Reds have been interested in signing him in the past and Rodriguez would be hoping they come back after this season.
