James looked to be all set for Napoli, but their reluctance to pay €42m for a permanent deal let in Atletico Madrid.

However, Marco Asensio’s serious knee injury has threatened to put the brakes on a transfer for the Colombian.

Moreover, AS and El Pais both claim Los Blancos pulled out of a €50m sale to Atleti after they were thrashed 7-3 by their city rivals in a recent friendly.

The 28-year-old has since been working with Madrid’s first team at their training ground, although it remains to be seen whether he will be called up for their Audi Cup clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale’s proposed switch to Jiangsu Suning from the Santiago Bernabeu is definitely off after Inter’s sister club signed Ivan Santini from Anderlecht.

With that, Jiangsu have now filled their foreign-player quota ahead of Wednesday’s transfer deadline for Chinese teams.
