Real Madrid step up bid for Monaco star James Rodriguez
Morata's move away from the Bernabéu is a first step to lowering the club's wage bill for attacking players, but Di María is still the key.
Monaco are ready to sell James, but value the Colombian at 75m.
That would be the starting point for any negotiations, although Real have no intention of paying more than 60m.
