James left AS Monaco for Real in the summer.
"I have been 'with' Madrid since the time they had Zidane, Beckham, Roberto Carlos, the biggest stars. From the age of 11 I have always followed Real Madrid. I had a day off and I went to Munich to see the match against Bayern. While I was there I took the opportunity to take a photo with Cristiano Ronaldo. I had known for him a few years because we have the same agent.
"I always wanted to be here, I dreamed of it a lot. From the age of three or four I dreamed of being here and I want to stay here for many years. I want to fight to the death so that this dream continues. I knew that I had talent, but in football you also have to have luck."
