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.
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.
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.
Jadson, Luis Fabiano, Jackson Martinez, Ricardo Carvalho and Axel Witsel have all sealed huge moves to China under the guidance of Mendes.
