Monaco tell Real Madrid: We want €90m for James Rodriguez

The Colombia international was one of the stars of the World Cup and is attracting interest from La Liga, while Manchester United could also join the race to sign him

The story is too old to be commented.

I remember when Monaco signed him along with Joao Moutinho for a combined value of €70million. Many thought it was a split 50/50 for both on the contrary 45 of the 70 was for James- they knew how good he would end up becoming...

JAYMES is overrated as heck he plays in.............ligue 1

I agree, I'd never judge a player based on a cup run. Let's see what he can do next season.

cell9892698d ago

I hope youre joking lol, he was the top scorer, period. Had one of the best goals in the tournament too.

asmith23062698d ago

@cell989 yeah I know that. Doesn't take away from the fact that you can't judge a player properly on a cup run. A long season tells a bigger story than a potential seven matches. James scored 9 in 34 matches last season. In comparison, Bale scored 21 in 33 the season before Madrid signed him for €100m. €90m for Rodriguez is ridiculous.

Nes_Daze2698d ago

I was thinking the same, I'm sure a lot of people wanted Fred after the confederations cup lol, ok that's not a fair comparison but yea 90m is too much.

Stringerbell2697d ago

Why should his league be a blotch on who he is as a player? Would you have said the same thing about Eden Hazard because he came from Lille? Or Benzema because he played at Lyon?

MajorLazer2698d ago

Wow! A decent showing in the World Cup and he's being overhyped like crazy..

The_Devil_Hunter2698d ago

I have been watching this guy since he was at Porto with Falcao. He's always been great.

MajorLazer2698d ago

I'm not saying he's not great. I'm saying 90 Million Euros is utterly ridiculous

I think it's just the way they say "fuck off!" I think even they know he's not worth THAT much. it's just the same case with Spurs and Bale but Madrid went all out anyway! Madrid almost always get what they want with their money power!

unbad2697d ago

That's a boat load of money for an untested kid. But he has a massive upside.

This guys been great past few years, don't you play Football Manager!?

asmith23062696d ago

Haha, I remember the days when I used to play that game. I used to know every player around the world inside out. For the most part, FM was usually accurate in their judgement of a players potential!
