Football Transfers: Real Madrid sign James Rodriguez for £63million
The uprising star of world football and the golden boot winner of the 2014 World Cup, James Rodriguez has agreed to join Real Madrid for a deal said to be around £63million deal. The Colombian striker came to the attention of everyone, when he shone in the 2014 World Cup, where he scored six goals.

There were some other clubs that were interested in signing the player, but James was sure about his destination, as he wanted to play for the biggest club in Spain, Real Madrid. His club, Monaco might not have wanted to part ways with the 23 year old player, but James' dream to play for Madrid and with Real willing to spend big, there was no way out for Monaco, where he scored nine goals last season along with 12 assists. The player was brought by the French giants from Porto last season for around £35million.

When Real Madrid comes calling, there are very few players in world football, who would not love to join them in Spain.When the club wants the player, they leave no stone unturned and offer huge money along with good wages to satisfy the player.

With this move, they have a dangerous looking attacking line consisting of Ronaldo, Bale and James. These players when on song could scare defenders individually and when they play together, it could be a nightmare for defenders.

This signing can be considered to be the second world class signing by Real Madrid for the season, as just a few days earlier they signed the German Tony Kroos from Bayern Munich.

This could lead to a confusing situation for Benzema, Mardid's striker last season, who might have to sit on the bench with James' arrival. But, a number of clubs such as Liverpool and Arsenal might be interested in signing the French striker promising first team football. It could be good business for Madrid and Benzema as the club would also reap benefit. But, will Benzema quit or rather decide to fight for a starting place in Real Madrid?
