MADRID (AP) A week after finishing the World Cup as the tournament's top scorer with six goals, Colombia forward James Rodriguez signed a six-year deal with Real Madrid on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old Rodriguez, who helped Colombia reach the quarterfinals in Brazil, passed a medical examination at the Sanitas Clinic in the northern suburb of La Moraleja and will be presented to fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.
"I'm very happy," Rodriguez said as he left the clinic. "Everything went well."
