Real Madrid could sign Jose Luis Rodriguez in 'the next few days'

Uruguayan defender Jose Luis Rodriguez has said a move to Real Madrid could be completed by this weekend.

Rodriguez, 21, who plays for Danubio in his homeland, also confirmed the European champions were not the only team interested in his services, though he does not know who the other club is as his agent is dealing with the negotiations.

"Before Aug. 31 [when the transfer window closed] there was the opportunity to go [to Real Madrid]," Rordiguez told Sport 890 after being asked when the proposed move to the Bernabeu first came about. "My agent is talking to them now, and in these next few days I should be able to travel and try to close it."

Asked if Real Madrid were the only club who wanted to sign him, he replied: "No, there is another side, but I would be lying if I told you I knew who it was."

Rodriguez -- nicknamed 'El Puma' -- confirmed he will not be playing in Sunday's clash with Boston River.

"I will not be playing in the next match, I think," he said. "We will be looking to travel soon -- possibly before the weekend.

"I trained all week like normal, but not as a starter. The manager knows I won't be starting."

Fellow Uruguayan Federico Valverde is at already with the Real Madrid B team and Rodriguez revealed the pair have spoken about his potential move.

"Yes, I've talked to him," Rodriguez said. "It's very good to have people you know people somewhere you could end up living."

Rodriguez, who will be signing for Real Madrid's Castilla side should the deal go ahead, was also asked whether he would be loaned back to Danubio for the rest of the campaign. But he could not give a definite answer because nothing has been decided yet -- a situation which is giving him sleepless nights.

"Yes [coming back to Danubio is one options]," he said. "Right now, nothing is concrete so I am very anxious.

"I lost a few a days' sleep while I waited for this to be resolved. I have already got my bags packed -- but only halfway."
