Reports: On loan Real Madrid star gets Spanish citizenship, all set for a return

Real Madrid playmaker, currently on loan at Bayern Munich, James Rodriguez’s time in Germany hasn’t been fruitful enough and the Colombian might be on his way back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup star joined Bayern on a two-year loan in 2017 with an option to make the deal permanent for €42 million. And in the 64 appearances that he has made for the club as of now, James has 15 goals and 20 assists to show for.

However, there have been reports doing the rounds that the Colombian’s time in Germany might be coming to an end and now Spanish publication Marca report that he has finally a Spanish citizen now, which has opened the path for his return to Madrid.

Los Blancos have been short on options up front this season and want the advanced midfielder to play an integral role next season. However, whether the reunion would turn out to be a fruitful one remains to be seen.

FOX Sports Probability Rating: 3/5 – There are bleak chances of Bayern making the deal permanent, therefore, it is highly likely that the Colombian will be switching clubs in the summer. However, the fact that he did not have a great time under Zinedine Zidane in the Frenchman’s first spell as Real Madrid manager might force James’s hands into looking for other potential suitors.
