Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are said to be considering a move for Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez this summer.

According to the report from Spanish media outlet Cadena SER, Atletico Madrid want to bolster their squad for the new season with Real Madrid loanee James Rodriguez.

The Colombian international player was surplus to requirements at Real Madrid before his loan move to German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in 2017 and his status is still the same upon his return from his loan spell with the Bavarian giants.

James Rodriguez signed for Bayern Munich on loan for two years for a fee of £11m with the option of a permanent transfer for £36m.

The 27-year-old won two successive league titles with the Bavarian giants during his time at the club.

He also won the German Cup title with Bayern Munich but the Bundesliga champions opted not to make his loan move permanent.

The Chelsea target has been attracting the interest of clubs like Napoli and FC Porto this summer as he plots the next move for his career.

For now, James Rodriguez is currently with the Colombian national team at the ongoing COPA America tournament in Brazil.

James Rodriguez and Colombia will face champions Chile in the quarterfinals of the tournament.
