Bayern Munich and Chelsea are battling to sign James Rodriguez, with Real Madrid trying to recoup €75 million for the Colombia international, according to Marca .

Former Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti worked with James for a season at the Santiago Bernabeu and has called on Bayern to press ahead with a bid for the playmaker after interest in Alexis Sanchez cooled.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have already missed out on one major target this summer after Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United, who have also been linked with James, and Antonio Conte is keen to avoid another transfer setback.
