Real Madrid are set to bring Colombian superstar, James Rodriguez, to the Santiago Bernabeu according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Rodriguez moved to Monaco from Porto last season for a fee reportedly around €45 million, however after a spectacular World Cup, which has seen the playmaker score five goals in four games resulting in a quarter-final clash against hosts Brazil, the 22-year old has caught the attention of a host of top clubs.

Florentino Perez to conduct negotiations

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to conduct the negotiations personally, however if the player continues his stunning form in Brazil, one expects that real would have to fork out substantially more than the €45 million Monaco paid barely a season ago.

Di Maria needs to be sold

Real Madrid will also have to offload Angel Di Maria before any deal can be done.

The Argentine, currently on duty with his country in Brazil has apparently requested a move away from the club he has been with since 2010, and after what was his best season for the Madrid giants, there will be no shortage of suitors, even at the €50 million valuation the club hoping to receive for the winger.

Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus, Monaco and PSG are reportedly all interested in the player despite the valuation.

Monaco certainly have the money and Champions League football but they also have James Rodriguez while PSG could meet the financial commitments if the player decided on plying his trade in France.

Juventus certainly won't have the funds unless they can offload Arturo Vidal, while a move to the Premiership looks the most likely.

Louis Van Gaal is heavily backed in the transfer window and is on the lookout for a left-wing, considering there is no better out there, Di Maria could very well be his man.

Manchester City would love to steal the player from under the noses of their rivals, while Arsenal have been enquiring about the player for some time.

Incredible talent

Rodriguez Real Madrid fan

As for Rodriguez, well he is a lifelong Real Madrid fan which will be music to the ears of the Bernabeu faithful and will go to some length to help pave the way for a deal to be done.

Jorge Mendes, the players agent, has an excellent relationship with both Real Madrid and Monaco, which Florentino Perez will hope be crucial in bringing the 22-year old to the club.
