Real Madrid v Barcelona: Classy James Rodriguez shows what £60 million buys you

Real Madrid's James Rodriguez was one of the leading lights at the World Cup finals in Brazil. 
Now the young Colombian forward - a £60 million signing from Monaco during the close season - appears ready to carry his astonishing ball skills onto the park when Barcelona visit Real at the Bernabeu. 
Forget Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, Rodriguez is classy enough to bring his own brand of flair. His skill suggests it won't be long before he is challenging those two elder statesmen of the game for the 'Ballon d'Or'. 
Check out the footage above, and see if you disagree. It had us drooling.
