The future of Rodriguez remains firmly up in the air as he struggles for game time under Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu, and there is a good chance he will be on the move at some point.
It came as something of a surprise that he stayed throughout the summer after returning from a two-year loan spell with Bayern Munich.
Napoli were said to be among the clubs showing an interest then but a deal failed to materialise and he end ups staying where he was.
However Carlo Ancelotti's men are still said to be in the hunt for the Colombian and ae hoping to make a move some time soon.
Whether it comes in January or the summer, remains to be seen and there is still a question mark over whether Rodriquez will accept a move away or remain in Madrid to battle for his first-team place still.
Zidane would be happy to move him on at the right price to make way for his own transfer targets, but Rodriguez is under contract and may have other ideas.
He is already reported to have turned down an opportunity to join Arsenal in January as they are currently managerless and in a touch of turmoil.
Napoli are hardly a steady ship themselves at the moment and Rodriguez could opt to stay where he is for now.
