Chelsea turn their attentions to Real Madrid star after missing out on Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea have missed out on the chance to re-sign Romelu Lukaku this summer after the striker has decided to stay with Everton for at least one more season.

This decision has prompted Antonio Conte’s men to reasses their transfer plans for the summer, which has seen them focus their attentions on Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

The Columbian midfielder has slipped down the pecking order at the Bernabeu under Zinedine Zidane, and has been told he can leave if someone meets the clubs asking price.

The European Champions are keen to recoup around £60million for the playmaker who joined the club from Monaco just two years ago,

This is a fee that Chelsea would be willing to pay for James’ services after already having £65million bids for Lukaku rejected.
