10 Best Deals of the 2014 Summer Transfer Window


2. James Rodriguez
From Monako to Real Madrid

Real Madrid have signed the superstar James Rodriguez from Colombia, who was the top scorer in the 2014 WC and a part of the team of the tournament, from Monaco for a fee which could reach $115 million. Rodriguez won the Golden Boot with 6 goals in 5 matches in World Cup in Brasil as Colombia reached the quarter-finals. Rodriguez’s move is the fourth most expensive transfer of all time after those of new team-mates Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez from Barcelona. The former Porto forward won the Portuguese league three years in a row before joining Monaco last season, where he scored 9 goals in 34 Ligue 1 games.
