James set to stay at Real Madrid - Reports

James Rodríguez set to STAY at Real Madrid following Asensio's injury

July 29, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Colombian ace was set to leave the club to join either Napoli or Atlético, but things changed due to the Spaniard's injury.

What was suggested by Real Madrid fans last week is close to become a reality: James Rodríguez will be back playing for Los Blancos.

The Colombian ace spent the last two seasons on loan at Bayern München, but his bad relationship with coach Niko Kovac prevented Die Roten from paying the $49M asked by Los Blancos to make the deal permanent. Now, with Marco Asensio's injury, the Colombian player is set to stay at the Bernabeu as the Spaniard's replacement, according to reports by Marca and As.

Florentino Pérez's decision to keep James Rodríguez around will also put an end to the speculation surrounding Rodríguez's future and his potential arrival to Atlético Madrid. Following the baffling display shown by the team in their 7-3 loss against Los Colchoneros last Friday, it would be ludicrous to think Pérez will keep selling players to their neighbors, especially after Friday's clash.

The player returned to the team's training complex today after having a few words with the team's hierarchy.

The Colombian playmaker had also been linked to Napoli, but the Italian side was keen on signing James on loan, something that did not go down well among Real Madrid execs. Today, the player's future has been sorted out, and only time will tell which players will be transferred away from the club in an attempt to finance more signings.
