James Rodriguez says it is a dream of him to join Real Madrid, but it will likely just be a dream and he’ll stay with his current club Monaco.
There are rumours about Madrid wanting to buy the 23-year-old forward player with a 70million euros (£55million) swoop. Rodriguez is one of the players in Brazil who stands out with his scoring charts with six goals leading.
Just last season he joined Monaco from Porto for a fee of approximately £38.5million. In an interview he said he would relish the chance to line up alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Spanish newspaper Marca cites him saying: “It’s really flattering to know that a club like Madrid, of such magnitude, are interested in me. It would be a dream to sign for the team of my dreams. I have a great deal of respect for other clubs and admire the good football they play, but ultimately Real Madrid are Real Madrid. I’ve always had a thing for them.”
He continued: “It’s a dream, as I said, but also a privilege to play alongside players of such quality, all those world-class stars. It’s my life’s dream. If this finally happens, I only want to enjoy it.”
