James wants to come back to Real Madrid right now.

Real Madrid is in full reconstruction. The departures of Zidane and now Ronaldo leave a considerable void to fill. If Lopetegui wants to bet on Basel, he expects reinforcements. Hazard's name comes back insistently, but James could come back.

Julen Lopetegui begins to make his first choices. The new coach of Real Madrid expects reinforcements first-class after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus Turin. Florentino Perez knows he can not afford to wait a season before signing a superstar. Faced with the repeated refusal of Mbappé or Neymar for example, he knows that his mission will be complicated.

And if Eden Hazard and especially Thibaut Courtois are announced with insistence, the Belgian goalkeeper could even be officialized in the coming days, and another track was activated: the one leading to James Rodriguez. He is bidding for two seasons at Bayern Munich and is looking forward to returning to Santiago Bernabeu. Even more since the departure of Zinedine Zidane.

According to Marca, the Colombian midfielder and his agent Jorge Mendes have already informed Bayern of the player's choice to return to Madrid before the end of the loan agreement that ends June 30. The Bavarian club is now looking for a player from his profile. It will be sporting, and non-financial issue since Bayern has only enlisted free players, including Goretzka de Schalke. A positive balance of € 40 million that could enable it to be active. Real nevertheless knows that this return of loan will not be made without consideration.
