It is believed that there is an agreement in place between Rodriguez and the Azzurri, however agreement with Real is the problem as both parties are clearly poles apart. 

Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes is expected to meet Ancelotti on Thursday where details about a potential deal will be discussed. 

Mendes is also likely to meet Napoli President De Laurentiis to look for the right formula to seal the deal for the 28-year-old. 

As things stand, Spanish side Atletico Madrid are favourites to land the former AS Monaco attacking midfielder as they are ready to match Real’s player valuation of €40 million.
