Madrid Press: James Rodriguez spotted at Barajas airport


The media frenzy over the signing of James Rodriguez from Monaco has gone into overdrive today after the player was spotting arriving on Sunday at Madrid Barajas airport on a flight from Colombia.

All sorts of rumours spread social media, with suggestions the player could be presented as early as today. It turned out in fact that the player was on his way to Nice and had a stopover in the Spanish capital – being the gateway between Latin America and Europe, many flights stop in Madrid being going on to other destinations.

Marca and AS are both adamant the player will be a Los Blancos player this week though and will be presented to the fans on Thursday or Friday afternoon.

The Colombian’s arrival will likely spell the end of Angel di Maria, who the papers claim is edging closer to a move to PSG. There is some talk the French side want to take the Argentine on loan for a year before making any deal permanent, but Madrid would prefer to sell outright.

Finally, the squad depart today for the tour of the USA. Sixteen first team players will board the flight and the numbers will be boosted by some of the youth team players getting the chance to impress Carlo Ancelotti and his team.
