Colombian star James Rodriguez is reportedly unhappy at Real Madrid and has his eye on a dream move to the Premier League.

According to The Sun, as per reports from Spain, Rodriguez has his heart set on joining English champions Chelsea and doesn't want to spend another year playing under Rafael Benitez in the Spanish capital.

The attacking midfielder is a client of 'super agent' Jorge Mendes, who is keen to broker a move for the 24-year-old next summer.

Mendes secured big-money moves for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria - both of whom his clients - to Madrid and Manchester United respectively.

Rodriguez wouldn't be short of options should any move materialise, with Manchester City and Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain also keen on securing his services.

Reports suggest Rodriguez has grown restless playing in the shadows of Los Blancos stars Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, never mind his irregular playing time at the Bernabeu.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have made a nightmare start to defending their league title this season and are in desperate need of a shake up at Stamford Bridge. Their chances of a top four finish, let alone defending their title, seem slight and might look towards the Columbian as the solution to their problems.

Current stars Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are linked with moves in the opposite direction to Rodriguez, the pair emerging as targets for Real and Atletico Madrid.

Therefore, any deal involving Hazard to Benitez's side could involve the Columbia international heading in the opposite direction, though there's little doubt Chelsea have the funds to steal away the 24-year-old and retain Hazard - an exciting prospect for Blues fans.
