The Colombia star joined Los Blancos from Monaco for €80 million earlier this week and is planning a lengthy and successful stay in the Spanish capital.
“I always wanted this and I hope to be happy here for many years,” James told Real Madrid TV.
“I like challenges and to win, and I’m at a great club to achieve many titles.”
When asked what he would bring to the team, the attacking midfielder said: “Goals, passes and play. I am only one [person] but I want to help.”[eap_ad_2]
James added: “I’m anxious. I want August 1 to come to start training and be better every day.”
The former Porto forward – who claimed the Golden Boot at World Cup 2014 – won the Portuguese league three years in a row before last season joining Monaco, where he netted nine league goals in 34 games.
His coach at Porto, Andre Villas-Boas, admitted that he always thought James would go onto achieve great things – but not at such a young age.
He added: “I think he has all the conditions to adapt to the demands of Real Madrid and the pressure of a club.” (goal.com)[eap_ad_3]
