Is 23-year-old James Rodriguez having the best summer ever or what?
Earlier this month, the Colombia star won the Golden Boot at the 2014 World Cup after scoring six goals during the tournament. He also caught the eye of LeBron James, who called Rodriguez his "fav player in the world cup" on Twitter. And earlier this morning, Real Madrid announced that they have reached a deal with AS Monaco FC and agreed to purchase the rights to Rodriguez for the next six years:
The deal is reportedly going to be worth about 80 million euros (or approximately $108 million). More information about it is expected to be released later today.
