James Rodriguez would prefer Real Madrid over Barcelona

Colombian winger James Rodriguez has expressed his desire to play in Spain, and favours a move to Real Madrid over Barcelona or Atletico Madrid. 
After some sensational performances in the FIFA World Cup 2014, the interest in the young Colombian winger is strong, with clubs like Man Utd, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Napoli, Chelsea, Spurs etc. keeping close tabs and monitoring the situation.
Speaking to Spanish radio station, Cadena Cope, the 22-year-old was quoted by Goal saying, "I would love to play in Spain. It would be a dream to play there – it is the best league in the world."
When asked if he had a certain club in mind, he said, “I prefer Madrid to Barcelona."
Sky Sports’ Spanish correspondent Guillem Balague confirmed the story:

Rodriguez is certainly the talk of the town after he heroically led his team to a comprehensive  2-0 win over Uruguay, taking them to their very first quarterfinal in their FIFA World Cup history. His brace also took him to the top of the Golden Boot race, with a total of five goals to his name along with two assists. 
He had recently moved to Ligue 1 side Monaco from Porto after the French club paid €45 million for him, and are less likely to off-load him unless Real Madrid comes up with an offer they won’t want to refuse.
So is Bale's record transfer fee going to get shattered soon, let us know your views below in the comments.
