Barcelona challenge Real Madrid for €90M James Rodriguez

Barcelona are competing with Real Madrid for AS Monaco winger James Rodriguez. Real see the Colombian as a replacement for unsettled midfielder Angel di Maria. However, they now face competition from eternal rivals Barca.

El Confidencial says Barca have made contact with ASM about a stunning €90 million deal - for next summer.

Barca cannot afford to sign Rodriguez currently due to their record swoop for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Instead, they're attempting to broker terms similar to their previous agreement with Santos for Neymar, where they would welcome Rodriguez to the Nou Camp in 12 months' time.
