Chelsea in record breaking bid for illustrious midfielder

Chelsea have made a £60m offer for Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, according to the Daily Express.

The Colombian playmaker has found it hard to break into Los Blancos’ first-team in recent months, such is the vast array of attacking talent on show in the Spanish capital.

Despite his huge arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu back in 2014, the former Monaco midfielder has largely been on the periphery for the Champions League winners.

That being said, the report claims that Blues boss Antonio Conte has made a record bid for the star, reportedly desperate to add a new front man to his ranks.

Having watched the likes of Manchester rivals United and City splash the cash this summer, the west London giants have been relatively inactive thus far.

N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi have been the only major arrivals at Stamford Bridge, though the squad is packed to the rafters with illustrious names as it is.
