Liverpool and Manchester United will have to fork out £70million if they want to sign Real Madrid flop James Rodriguez, according to reports.
Rodriguez was shipped out on a two-year loan deal to Bayern Munich after failing to claim a place in the Real team.
With Zinedine Zidane returning as Los Blancos boss, it seems unlikely the Colombia international will have a future at the Bernabeu.
Bayern have an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season, but only if they can pay the agreed £50m fee.
According to Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, Madrid are looking to get more money for the 27-year-old to boost their transfer budget for a huge summer overhaul under Zidane.
Jurgen Klopp and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could both be in the queue to sign Rodriguez – but it will cost them.
Although the La Liga giants would want £70m, it is understood they would settle for €60million (£51m).

According to AS , the newspaper said: “Bayern have paid Real Madrid 6.5 million euros a year for each season (that James has been on loan in Munich), and if they want to keep him they will have to activate a purchase clause set at 42 million euros.
“If Bayern finally decide not to keep the player, Madrid will put him on the market for 60 million euros, an initial asking price that they won’t drop any lower than 50.”
Bayern have until 15 June to make a decision on Rodriguez.
