James Rodriguez has openly stated that he hopes that he can return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan spell at Bayern Munich.
The Colombian has spent the last two seasons at the German giants, but seems disgusted to stay in Bavaria at the end of his loan spell.
Speaking after Bayern’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Tuesday evening, Rodriguez revealed that he hopes to return to Madrid after his loan spell is over, dashing Arsenal’s hopes of signing the midfielder.
The 27-year-old revealed that he prefers moving back to Real Madrid with his home, family and friends in the Spanish capital.
“In Madrid, I have everything such as my house and people who love me. We will have to see what happens, but at the moment I have a contract with Bayern Munich.”
“I just want to finish the season and we’ll see what happens. I keep in touch with some Real Madrid players.”
Rodriguez rose to prominence at the 2014 World Cup, and then earned a move to Real Madrid from AS Monaco.
However, Rodriguez has never really got going in the Spanish capital and was loaned out to Bayern for two seasons, with a view to a permanent deal.
This deal would not happen though, with Rodriguez unwilling to make the move to Bavaria a permanent one.
