Rodriguez has struggled for game time since he returned to the Bernabeu in the summer after a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich.
Injuries have hampered the 2014 Golden Boot winner since his return to Spain and the 28-year-old is said to be looking for a way out.
Real are looking to recoup the £71million they paid Monaco for Rodriguez but Mendes is looking to get that figure down to give Wolves a chance.
The Molineux outfit have a very close link with Mendes and his GestiFute firm currently boasts some of football’s biggest names.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Ederson are three of his most famous clients.

But his special relationship with Wolves stretches a little further with six of his players currently plying their trade under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, Rui Patricio, Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto and Joao Moutinho all call Mendes their agent.
Rodriguez has made just 13 LaLiga appearances for Real this season, bagging just one goal and two assists.
