With Los Blancos reportedly already in negotiations over a proposed €70 million move, the Colombian looks likely to achieve his "life dream" of moving to Santiago Bernabeu.
However, not content with already adding Luis Suarez to their line-up, Barcelona are believed to be attempting to gazump their bitter rivals for their primary transfer target, although remain 14/1 (15.00) outsiders to succeed in turning his head.
Aside from the Spanish heavyweights, a number of the continent's biggest clubs have been linked with the talented 23-year-old, who now seems certain to have played his last match at Stade Louis II.
Fellow Ligue 1 billionaires Paris Saint-Germain are on offer at 14/1 (15.00) to convince the World Cup Golden Boot-winner to defect to the French capital, while Bayern Munich are also priced at 14/1 (15.00) to bring him to Germany.
Premier League big spenders Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are also available at 14/1 (15.00) to tempt the former Porto man to England, although each seem focused on other targets.
Having already brought Alexis Sanchez to the Emirates this summer, you can get odds of 20/1 (21.00) on Arsenal sending their fans into dreamland by adding another South American World Cup star to their increasingly promising squad.
Meanwhile, Italian champions Juventus are also rated at 20/1 (21.00) to reinvest the money that looks to be coming their way for Arturo Vidal on James, a statement of intent for an ailing Serie A.
