World Cup golden boy rules out Premier League switch

Colombia star James Rodriguez has ruled out the chance of him moving to the Premier League any time soon, as reported by the Metro.

The 22-year-old has been in stunning form for his country, scoring one of the best ever goals seen at the World Cup along the way.

Rodriguez went under the radar for Monaco last season, with the French runners-up not in Europe.

However with his reputation at an all-time high, the midfielder is set to be the subject of numerous bids from big name clubs this summer.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are both reportedly interested and Rodriguez claims he would prefer a move to Spain over England due to the physicality of England.

‘I’ve said in the past that I’d like to play in Spain one day, because it is a league that is good technically, and where you get a lot of touches on the ball, which is my style,’ said Rodriguez, speaking at an Adidas event in Brazil.

‘The Premier League is maybe a bit physical at this stage.

“But I am a Monaco player and I’m not thinking about anything like that at the moment.”
