If Rodriguez moves to Anfield, it could pave the way for Coutinho to move to Barcelona – and Real Madrid don’t want that

Liverpool’s pursuit of James Rodriguez could be brought to a halt by Real Madrid if it means that Barcelona could benefit from his sale, according to reports.

Rodriguez has been linked with a move away from Madrid for quite some time now, due mostly to the fact that he has struggled to break into the first-team and play regular football for the club.

Rather than stay at the Bernabeu, the player could instead leave the club in search of a regular starting spot elsewhere. There has been several interested teams already, with Chelsea, Man United and Liverpool in the Premier League all interested.

In recent weeks, it has been the Reds who have become most hotly linked with his signature, as they look for players to help improve their side in the summer.

Although Rodriguez wouldn’t be cheap, adding him to the squad at Anfield could be a huge boost to the side next season, especially if they end up playing Champions League football.

Block moves for Rodriguez

However, their attempts to sign the Colombia international might now be stopped by Real Madrid because of the fact that the sale of star could end up benefiting their rivals Barcelona.

According to Don Balon, if Liverpool do land Rodriguez, then it could pave the way for them to sell Phillipe Coutinho to Barcelona. This would see the Catalan giants boosted by the addition of another big star and Madrid don’t want to see that happen.

Therefore, to stop their rivals from landing the Brazilian, they are willing to stop the sale of Rodriguez to Jurgen Klopp’s men, if it means it will prevent Barca from landing another good player.

It’s unlikely to stop Liverpool from trying to sign the 25-year old in the summer but it’s likely that most approaches will be stopped, unless a bid they cannot turn down is made.

It does seem likely though that no matter what happens, this could be the Colombian’s last season at Madrid.
