James' Stepfather Speaks Out Amid Transfer Talks

James Rodriguez’s stepfather has had his say amid the news linking his son with a move away from Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Pep Praises Two Stars Linked With City

The Colombian international has been heavily linked with a transfer to Manchester United in recent weeks, and new reports suggest that the move could be confirmed as soon as Sunday.

Juan Carlos Restrepo, Rodriguez's stepfather, feels that an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu would be good for the superstar as he feels he needs to be starting matches regularly.

"I'm sure James knows about how few minutes he's been getting," he said on Cadena SER.

"I, as a father, prefer him to be a starting player in a different team than being a substitute at Real Madrid."

Some feel the Colombian is being forced out of the club to accommodate the injured Gareth Bale, but Restrepo does not think this is the case.

"James gets into different areas of play, something you don't get with Bale," the player's stepfather added.
