Colombia’s star striker/dancer is cashing out
After a stellar World Cup performance, in which James Rodriguez was instrumental in helping his native Colombia achieve an undefeated record in the opening group stage of the tournament, James Rodriguez is headed to Real Madrid for 80 million euros.
Rodriguez’s former team, AS Monaco FC, initially purchased Rodgriguez for 45 million euros in what was the most expensive transfer in Portugese football history, second to only a deal Hulk, a key member of the Brazilian national team, made.
Today, it was announced that Rodriguez will be joining Real Madrid for the equivalent of $108 million (in U.S. dollars).
In case you don’t think that was money well spent, check out a highlight reel of James’ 2014.
