Napoli coach Ancelotti admits James talks continuing

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti admits talks are continuing for Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez.

Ancelotti was speaking after their friendly defeat to Benevento.

He said, “James can play in many positions behind the centre-forward. He is a Number 10 accustomed to playing behind the striker or as a winger, with the tendency to cut inside.

“I sent him a happy birthday message this week. There are negotiations in progress, it’s going to take a very long time, but we aren’t desperate or anything. If it doesn’t work out, we’ll still be a strong team and might go for a different target.

“As for the striker, a modern centre-forward can’t just be a finisher now, which is why Arkadiusz Milik is very important for us.”
