Italian Serie A giants Napoli are the best option for Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez according to his father Wilson.
James Rodriguez is deemed to be surplus to requirements at Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid and he has been seriously linked with a move to Napoli this summer.
Wilson Rodriguez spoke to CalcioNapoli about his son as he revealed that Napoli represent the best option for him thereby ruling out a move to the Premier League.
James Rodriguez has been a long-term transfer target for Premier League sides like Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and West London giants Chelsea.
His father also talked up the relationship his son has with Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti during back to their days at Real Madrid.
James Rodriguez played under the guidance of the Italian tactician at Real Madrid for one season (2014/15 season) before Carlo Ancelotti was sacked at the end of that campaign.
James Rodriguez is deemed to be surplus to requirements at Real Madrid this summer just like what was obtainable during the summer transfer window of 2017 when he left the club to join German champions Bayern Munich on loan.
He signed for the Bavarian giants on loan for two years until this summer for £11m with the option of a permanent transfer for £36m but the Germans opted not to make the transfer permanent.
