Important news on the James Rodríguez saga. According to L'Equipe, arguably the most prestigious sports outlet in Europe, the Colombian attacker could sign for Real Madrid this next Monday. There are a couple things that need to get done first in order for this transfer to happen. For example, according to L'Equipe, Monaco will focus on signing Real Madrid canterano Rodrigo Moreno.

Apparently, James' move to Real Madrid could be completed earlier than expected. Still, Real Madrid need to sell some players -Morata, Casemiro and maybe Di María and/or Khedira as well- to get the money needed to sign James. It could be argued that the Colombian attacker is not worth that transfer fee, but he will surely add a lot of depth and quality to a roster that already won the 2013-14 UEFA Champions League. With James, Isco and Jesé on the offensive line, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema will finally be able to rotate and sit some matches out.
