James Rodriguez Transfer 2014: Colombian Star Reveals That Playing for Real Madrid is a ‘Life Dream’

Colombian soccer star James Rodriguez has admitted that he dreams of playing for Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old Monaco player has recently been linked with a €80 million ($109 million) move to Real Madrid.

When asked by Spanish newspaper Marca about his thoughts about Real Madrid, Rodriguez said: “Playing for Real Madrid is my life’s dream: it’d be a privilege to play alongside so many stars. If it happened, I’d enjoy it to the max.

“It’s really flattering to know that a club of Real Madrid’s stature is interested in me. It’d be a dream to join the club of my dreams.”

Rodriguez has been supporting Madrid since, “the days when Zidane, the Brazilian Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and Fernando Hierro were around.”


“I have a great deal of respect for other clubs and admire the good football they play, but ultimately Real Madrid are Real Madrid,” he said.

“I’ve always had a thing for them, like I said before.”

Based on his performance at World Cup 2014 — Golden Boot winner with 6 goals and 2 assists — Rodriguez certainly does justify this fee.

“Would I jump at the chance to go to Real? No doubt about it, my answer is a resounding yes,” said Rodriguez.
