AS Monaco star James Rodriguez would welcome a move to Real Madrid.

Rodriguez revealed he would fulfil a life's dream by moving to the Bernabeu and would relish the chance to line up alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.

He told Marca: "It's really flattering to know that a club like Madrid, of such magnitude, are interested in me. It would be a dream to sign for the team of my dreams.

"I have a great deal of respect for other clubs and admire the good football they play, but ultimately Real Madrid are Real Madrid. I've always had a thing for them.

"It's a dream, as I said, but also a privilege to play alongside players of such quality, all those world-class stars. It's my life's dream. If this finally happens, I only want to enjoy it.

"Cristiano is a great player, a superstar in capital letters. Cristiano deservedly won the Ballon d'Or, which recognises the best player in the world.

"I'm a very calm person, I try to stay calm at all times. But, to be honest, signing for Real Madrid is a different matter. I'm in the hands of president Florentino Perez," he added with a smile.
