Real Madrid have bolstered their already fearsome frontline with the addition of World Cup Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez.
The man simply known as Ham-ez decorated the dotted line at the Bernabeu after Los Merengues agreed to pay Monaco £63m for his services.
He’ll join lethal trio Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in what is arguably the finest foursome in world football.
The Colombian conjurer is rated at 18/25 to chip in with 11 La Liga goals or more during his first season as a Blanco and based on his exploits in the land of samba this is mark he will comprehensively surpass.
Given the array of talent in the Real attacking third, as well as those stationed in midfield, James is certain to have enough chances fashioned to help backers land the punt in question.
Just feast your eyes on the quality ram packed into the upper echelons of the Real Madrid team:
Toni Kroos – Centre-midfield
The German string-puller averaged 75.5 passes per outing in the Bundesliga last term and they found their mark at a rate just shy of 92 per cent.
Who better to supply the front four than the German World Cup-winner?
Xabi Alonso – Centre-midfield
Another master in possession, the former Liverpool lynchpin combines midfield discipline with an elegant passing ability.
His defensive prowess will prove vital alongside the more attack-minded Kroos.
Gareth Bale – Forward-right
The Welshman’s direct running and threat when cutting in from the right flank is one of his most potent weapons.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Forward-left
CR7 has the left-wing berth locked down, free to roam as an auxiliary striker in Real’s free-form frontline.
James Rodriguez – Number ten
He flourished playing behind Teo Gutierrez at the World Cup, scoring six goals in five appearances in Brazil.
In a side stocked with genuine world-class attacking assets expect to see James’ creative qualities come to the fore in La Liga.
Karim Benzema – Striker
The mercurial Frenchman will retain his spearhead responsibilities for the season ahead, probably tasked with playing up against the opposition’s defensive line to pry room for Rodriguez to exploit.
