Real Madrid- James Rodriguez

James Rodriguez

Santiago Bernabéu will soon welcome another star as rigid talks on James Rodriguez’s transfer takes place between Real Madrid and AS Monaco.


Rodriguez’s arrival in the French outfit, alongside with Radamel Falcao has been considered as one of AS Monaco’s biggest investments. But it seemed that the club can still make more money out of Rodriguez’s impending transfer.


According to reports, AS Monaco demands for a staggering $100M and Real Madrid is willing to pay if they completed Angel Di Maria’s deal with Paris Saint Germain.


Rodriguez readily featured during the 2014 World Cup. He was a top pick of online betting sites in winning the Golden Boot award and true enough, the 23-year-old winger bagged the said award after netting six (6) goals in the competition.


Mario Mandzukic

Croatia’s reliable striker, Mario Mandzukic, has completed his move to another champion club, Atletico Madrid.


Mandzukic reportedly signed a 4-year agreement with the Spanish outfit. His entry is expected to fill the void that Diego Costa left when the latter opted to join Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.


Mandzukic netted thirty-three (33) goals for Bayern Munchen during his 2-year stay. However, severed relationship with Pep Guardiola and the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, prompted Mandzukic’s exit.


Keylor Navas

Costa Rica’s trusted goalkeeper is another key addition to Real Madrid. Navas’ outstanding display helped the Los Ticos qualify in the quarter-finals. Netherlands, however, beat them in a heart-breaking penalty shootout. Nevertheless, his performance did not miss the eyes of the Champions League titleholder, Real Madrid.
