Arias: James Rodriguez at Atletico Madrid?

Atletico Madrid fullback Santiago Arias is aware of talk of being joined by Colombia teammate James Rodriguez this summer.

Real Madrid are encouraging James to find a new club and he has been linked with city rivals Atletico.

Fellow Colombian Arias stated, "James to Atlético? There is a lot of talk.

"He is one of the representative players of the national team. Of those who have achieved many things. There is admiration as a Colombian. He does well, he has qualities.

"We are not talking about Atleti. If he comes here he will be welcome for sure. We'll wait to see what happens."
