Real Madrid president Florentino ready to sacrifice James to land Lewandowski

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to sacrifice James Rodriguez.

Perez is delighted to see James revive his career on-loan at Bayern Munich this season under the guidance of former Real coach Jupp Heynckes.

However, Diario Gol says he plans to use the Colombia captain as a makeweight in negotiations for Robert Lewandowski.

Perez has enquired about a price for the Poland striker and been quoted €150m. In order to drive down the cash valuation he is willing to include James in his offer.

Perez is prepared to value James at €50m, so to bring down Lewandowski's cash component to €100m.
