Jorge Mendes has been pictured presenting Tianjin Quanjian's billionaire owner with a signed shirt from the Real Madrid superstar
Cristiano Ronaldo's super-agent Jorge Mendes has been pictured meeting with Tianjin Quanjian's billionaire owner, amid speculation surrounding James Rodriguez's future at Real Madrid.
Mendes, who has overseen a number of transfers involving Chinese Super League clubs of late, headed to China to present Shu Yuhui with a signed Real shirt from Ronaldo.
Ronaldo's representative claimed in December that the Portugal international was the subject of a €300m offer from a CSL outfit, but the forward rejected it.
Another one of Mendes' clients, James, recently confirmed he would be staying at Real but that has not stopped speculation linking him with a big-money move to China either.
Chinese Super League outfit Hebei Fortune rejected claims on Wednesday that they had offered £95 million for the Colombia attacking midfielder.
However, talk has been intensified after Mendes' meeting with Tianjin Quanjian chief Yuhui.
James joined Real from Monaco for a reported £63 million fee in 2014 but he has since struggled to earn regular game time in the presence of the likes of Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with making a move for him in recent weeks.
Jadson, Luis Fabiano, Jackson Martinez, Ricardo Carvalho and Axel Witsel have all sealed huge moves to China under the guidance of Mendes.
