Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez could be heading back to Real Madrid according to reports from Spain which suggest that James is eager to get back to Madrid after the departure of Zinedine Zidane.
James Rodriguez joined Bayern Munchen on a 2 year long loan spell with an option to be a permanent part of the German club, for which Bayern had to pay a sum of €42m. However, with Zidane’s departure, James might believe that he can be an integral part of the Spanish club.
Marca suggests that the managerial changes in both sides of the deal, i.e. arrival of Lopetegui and Nico Kovaç in Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively has forced James to rethink about his future and maybe even cut short his loan spell. The Spanish media also reports that Lopetegui will be pleased with the return of James especially after Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Turin, and might as well want to force the Colombian midfielder to come back before the beginning of the next season.
The Colombian ace had a relatively quiet World Cup but he did manage to come up with 7 Bundesliga goals and 11 assists for Bayern last season.
