James Rodriguez is having a season to forget, and that might exactly be his thought process, as he has apparently decided to head out of the Bernabeu once the summer window reopens this year.
The Daily Express claims that Rodriguez has been frustrated by being left out on the bench week in week out, and has realised it is time to move on as there are no signs of being a part of Zidane’s future plans.
The Colombian superstar will be a target worth fighting for in the summer, and Premier League clubs are in a race to land him when the time arrives, with Liverpool favourites as they prepare to shell out £43million to secure the midfielder’s services.
However, all of this could be mere rumours as Don Balon claim that James has decided that the Bundesliga will be his destination in the summer, with Bayern Munich being the team he prefers over anybody else.
The major reason for that is a chance to reunite with former Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and hopefully gain the starting time he and his abilities deserve. Ancelotti signed him for Madrid in 2014, and is apparently interested in re-signing the Colombian in Germany this time around.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready with an asking price that begins at no lesser than £50 million, a value the German champions are more than capable of coughing up if necessary.
