Real’s willingness to see Rodriguez depart represents a significant change in attitude for the club after they had their transfer ban overturned.

Zinedine Zidane’s side were initially banned from registering new players for the next two transfer windows, but a Court of Arbitration in Sport ruling has overturned FIFA’s verdict.

The ban has now been reduced and Real can make new signings from the start of the summer transfer window.

Rodriguez himself has refused to deny suggestions he could leave Spain’s capital in the January window.

‘I can’t assure I will stay at Real Madrid,’ he said after his side won the Club World Cup.

‘I am happy in Madrid, but I want to play more. I have a bitter feeling as I wanted to play the final, but I am happy for the title. It’s my 15th title in my career.’

Reports in Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport suggested he could move to Juventus, while Rodriguez has also been linked with Inter Milan or a move to China.
