Manchester United and Chelsea linked winger James Rodriguez has rejected a lucrative offer to head to the Chinese Super League during this month's transfer window.
The Colombian’s future was a topic of much conjecture until recently, when he came out and insisted that he won’t be leaving Real Madrid during the January transfer window.
Manchester United and Chelsea were reportedly interested in him, but according to Spanish sports daily AS, Chinese Super League outfit Hebei Fortune made big money offers for him in January too.
It has been claimed that Real Madrid rejected an initial offer of €80m last month, as Los Blancos were not interested in selling the Colombian to the Chinese outfit.
However, Hebei came back with a better offer of €110m and offered close to ten times more money to the player in order to convince Rodriguez to move to China in January.
But the Colombian stepped in and rejected the approach from Hebei in order to continue at Real Madrid until at least the end of the season.
The 25-year-old has not been a regular starter for Real Madrid this season and raised possibly leaving the Santiago Bernabeu last month.
He has a contract until 2020 with the European champions.
