Rodriguez plots La Liga transfer

20 August 2012 14:32

James Rodriguez says he is looking to swap Portuguese side Porto for a La Liga club at some point in his career.

The Colombia international is considered an exciting emerging talent, and the 21-year-old has said he would prefer a transfer to Spain over a move to England.

"I'm very aware that I'm still young and have a lot to learn, but I would eventually like to play in Spain," Rodriguez told the FIFA website.

"It's a league that I've always watched - it's different from the English League, which is very physical. The game in Spain is more about technique, and about getting more touches on the ball. That's why I like it so much."

Rodriguez also said he has draw inspiration from former Colombia international Carlos Valderrama.

"Carlos Valderrama was the one I admired most, really," he said.

"At the time, he was a top player and I had a lot of admiration for him. I met him once and he’s a great person, someone who provided the country with a lot of joy.

"He was a very intelligent footballer who could create something out of nothing as well as score goals. For those reasons, we all wanted to have the number 10 on our backs when we played."

Rodriguez is under contract with Porto until June 2016.
