Real Madrid ‘to pay £35m for James Rodriguez return’

Real Madrid are reportedly contemplating paying £35m to recall James Rodriguez from his loan spell at Bayern Munich.

The European champions allowed Rodriguez to join Bayern on a two-year loan deal last summer, and it was expected that the attacker would remain at the Allianz Arena until 2019.

However, Real have so far failed to find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo – who has joined Juventus – and it could lead to Real paying a fee to be able to use their own player.

According to El Pais, the Spanish giants will discuss whether it makes sense to pay out for Rodriguez to be available to Julen Lopetegui for the current campaign.

The new Real boss is allegedly keen to strengthen his options with another forward, and bringing back Rodriguez could satisfy the former Spain coach.
