James who is very quick ,talented and also a good finisher will obviously be a good addition to chelsea team as they have lost impetus in attack since the beginning of the season and could also prove to be Guus Hiddinks first singning in his second spell at Chelsea FC.
As Chelsea hope to reawaken the performing that saw them win the league seven months ago,and with the future of Cesc Fabregas not certain the acquisition of James would obviously be a great replacement for Spanish play maker who has fallen out with a section of the fans that believed Fabrigas was part of the trio that instigated Jose Mourinho's sack.

The Colombia international scored 25 goals in 3 seasons at Portugal .While at Monaco, he scored 9 goals in just a season ,before subsequently moving to Madrid after a wonderful world cup campaign with Colombia.
Rodriguez has scored 4 goals and bagged 4 assist in 12 club appearances this season.He also holds an 82.5 pass success percentage.He is a gifted player who can hold on to the ball.James is also a wonderful finisher.He will no doubt be a priceless asset to the Chelsea team if they are able to lure him away from the Satiago Bernabeu.
