Real Madrid are closing in on the signing of Colombia forward James Rodríguez, according to reports in Spain.

The 22-year-old, who won the Golden Boot at the World Cup after scoring six goals in his country’s run to the quarter-finals, is believed to be back in Monaco after spending the weekend in the Spanish capital.

The Madrid-based newspaper Marca has claimed that the reigning European champions are expecting to complete the signing on Monday and the club has already prepared a villa for Rodríguez to move into.

However, French newspaper L’Equipe believes that the fee to bring Rodríguez to the Bernabéu is still not settled, with Monaco’s owner Dimitry Rybolovlev holding out for €85m (£67m) and Madrid only prepared to offer €75m.
