Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez is reportedly in advanced talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a move away from the Bernabeu this summer.
According to Yahoo, the French side are close to confirming the transfer of Rodriguez, who joined Real Madrid for around £67 million in 2014.
He moved to Spain from one of PSG's league rivals, AS Monaco, following some brilliant performances for Colombia in the 2014 World Cup.

However, the Colombian has failed to tie down a regular spot in Madrid's starting XI due to the competition from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, and even Lucas Vazquez amongst others.
However, it now appears that the forward is heading back to France.
Yahoo have reported that talks between PSG, led by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, and Rodriguez's agent, Jorge Mendes, are at a very advanced stage.
It's also believed that the Colombian is very interested in working under new PSG manager Unai Emery, as he has lost his starting place at Madrid since the arrival of Zinedine Zidane.
Rodriguez has been one of Europe's hottest prospects since joining Real in 2014 and has scored 20 goals in 55 appearances for Los Blancos.
Due to his pedigree, it's unlikely that the want-away midfielder will move on for a cut-price. Madrid will be hoping to get back at least what they paid for him, and luckily for them, PSG are one of the only clubs in the world with the funds to land the 24-year-old.
