Valderrama backing Real Madrid move for James Rodriguez

Colombian legend Carlos Valderrama would like to see AS Monaco star James Rodriguez playing in Spain. Rodriguez is being linked with Real Madrid.

"I hope he goes to Spain. There's not much I can add after the World Cup he has just played," Valderrama told Marca.

"Whoever had any doubts has now seen what he can do. I never had any.

"Not even Real Madrid is too big for James. Look how he played this World Cup [at] just 22 years old, he has shown he can play for any club in the world.

"Great players cost a lot, and he's a great player. He's an eight or 10-year investment and the club that buys him won't regret it, whoever buys him will get their money back."
