Paris Saint-Germain have denied making a move for out-of-favour Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez.

The Colombian, who struggled to make an impression under Zinedine Zidane, has been linked with a switch to the Ligue 1 champions.

PSG are keen to bring a marquee name to the French capital following the loss of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who joined Manchester United, with the club also keen to kick off the Unai Emery era in blockbuster fashion.

No Truth

However, they have quashed reports saying they had approached Madrid for Rodriguez, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi playing down the speculation.

¨It is not true that we have already spoken with James,¨ he said at a press conference yesterday.

¨We have not been in touch with James, nor have we spoken with Real Madrid. There has not been any contact with any one.¨

Summer of change

Rodriguez looks set to leave the Bernabeu after two inconsistent years at the Bernabeu following his £63million move from Monaco two years ago.

And his exit could help fund the arrival of Paul Pogba, who could command a world record fee to fend off interest from Jose Mourinho at United.

PSG have already been busy in the transfer market, with ex-Newcastle winger Hatem Ben Arfa arriving from Nice and Grzegorz Krychowiak and Thomas Muenier also signing on.
