MADRID (AP) -- World Cup scoring leader James Rodriguez of Colombia is said to be leaving Monaco for Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old striker scored six goals in Brazil, including a spectacular volley against Uruguay in the second round.

The Spanish sports newspaper As said Monday that Monaco has agreed to terms with Madrid. The paper adds that the president of the Spanish club, Florentino Perez, has delayed his flight to Los Angeles, where the team is to have preseason training.

The sports newspaper Marca, traditionally close to Madrid executives, says Rodriguez is to be presented to fans Tuesday.

Madrid already has signed Germany midfielder Toni Kroos for next season.
