Arsenal’s plan to get James Rodriguez’s signature is certain to fail. The Real Madrid playmaker was said to have rejected the Gunners’ offer to move to North London.
Arsenal itself is in the midst of being heavily rumored to approach James. The Colombian playmaker is rumored to be plotted to become a replacement for Mesut Ozil in attacking the Premier League club.
Arsenal have reportedly moved to get James. They are said to have contacted the player to invite him to move in the transfer market this time.
But reported by ESPN, Arsenal’s hopes to bring James to clap one hand. Because the playmaker was called to reject the Arsenal invitation.
According to the report, James decided to reject Arsenal’s offer because he still wanted to stay at Bayern.
He reportedly felt his task at the Bundesliga giant had not yet been completed. Moreover, Bayern are currently still six points behind Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga standings.
As a result James wanted to bring Bayern to retain their title so he chose to reject Arsenal’s offer.
But the same report claims, James is not necessarily a permanent player at the Allianz Arena.
The Bayern side still does not want to decide whether they will activate the playmaker’s permanent purchase clause. Because the performance of James in the first half of the season is not slick.
But the Die Rotten side will give James the opportunity in the second half of the season. If he can improve his playing, then they are willing to redeem him permanently from Real Madrid.
