Colombian star James Rodriguez, the breakout star at the 2014 FIFA World Cup has been drawing the attention of world’s top clubs, particularly the Spanish giant Real Madrid.
Real Madrid are quite interested in the Monaco product James Rodriguez and very much intended to make a run at him provided they can sell Angel Di Maria, the Argentine midfielder.
As the 23-year-old winger expressed his desire to make the move to Real Madrid if Madrid ultimately makes a deal with him. It turns out to be a mutual feeling between James Rodriguez and Real Madrid.
James Rodriguez transfer rumor took its shape when he said,
” It makes me proud that a club like Real Madrid is interested in me. It’s like a dream to play for Real Madrid.”
James Rodriguez’s transfer would bring a great deal of excitement and energy to Bernabeu, but not everyone is convinced that it would be a right move for him. Some believe that replacing Angel Di Maria with James Rodriguez would be a mistake.
Although Colombia was eliminated by Brazil in the quarterfinal at 2014 world cup, James Rodriguez’s performance was spectacular throughout the tournament. As the tournament’s top goal scorer, he leads superstars like Germany’s Thomas Muller and Argentina’s Lionel Messi in the Golden boot race.
Real Madrid is already stacked with several attacking talents like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. So it would be even deadlier adding someone like James Rodriguez to the fold.
James Rodriguez tailed 10 goals and 12 assists for Monaco in the last season. He is such a player who both scores and contributes. His skill would certainly bode well for Real Madrid.
Above all, Rodriguez is a young player, just 23 who continues to get better. He could potentially reach unseen levels of success at Bernabeu.
However, his current club Monaco may not be keen on giving Rodriguez up, but the offers that come their way from Real Madrid and other clubs may force their hands as well. Right now, James Rodriguez is the fastest-rising star in the football world and seeing him with Los Blancos would be a true treat for football fans worldwide.
