Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has already endorsed the pursuit of Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, according to the Metro.
The Blues were linked with a move to sign the Real Madrid playmaker before they hired Hiddink but the club is set to continue their pursuit of the 24 years old.
Hiddink was confirmed as Chelsea interim manager on Saturday after the club sacked Jose Mourinho. And Spanish publications Fichajes claims that after taking a closer look at the squad, Hiddink has asked the club to complete the signing of the 24 year old.
The midfielder is considering his future at Madrid due to his strained relationship with Rafael Benitez, as per the Express.
It is thought that the midfielder will replace Cesc Fabregas in the Chelsea squad but the Spanish midfielder has been used in a deeper role at Chelsea making it a bit difficult for Rodriguez to replace him as Rodriguez is known to be best suited behind the striker or on the wings.
However, Hiddink’s approval of the signing of the Colombian internationals shows the intent of the West London club as they hope to climb up the table.
Hiddink his hoping he can help the Blues claim one of the top four spot, although its going to be a difficult task but the Dutch tactician is keen to improve his squad for the second half of the season.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
