Madrid: Real Madrid's Colombian international James Rodriguez said that he has been a fan of the club for virtually all his life.
Rodriguez, who joined Real Madrid for 80 million euros after the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, said he had "been with Madrid since the time they had Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, the biggest stars. From the age of 11 I have always followed Real Madrid," he said, adding that he had dreamed of joining the club, reports Xinhua.
"I wanted to leave France and I knew that if I had a good World Cup I could. I was very motivated to perform well because then I could join a big team."
