James Rodriguez Thinks Real Madrid Doesn’t Need Him
Cristiano Ronaldo said a month ago that Real Madrid was a strong side before James Rodriguez, Morata and Pepe left. This sparked a thought of reducing the loan deal with Bayern Munich. However, Rodriguez thinks that considering a return to Real is not of the essence.
Real Madrid released Pepe to Besiktas, sold Morata to Chelsea, and sent Rodriguez in a loan deal last summer. And while Rodriguez is struggling for a decent game-time with the Germans, Real are equally unstable in chasing the title this season.
While James was not fancied by Zinedine Zidane, his quality on the ball has never been in doubt. Had he been in the squad right now, his dribbling and shooting would have certainly helped Real Madrid to alleviate their goalscoring woes this season.
“I’m Only Thinking About Bayern Munich”
According to Ronaldo, the main cause of the downfall of Real Madrid is their inability to possess players with good potential. He claimed that the team was ‘better’ when Rodriguez was around. To this, he said,
“I do not know, for now, I’m only thinking about Bayern Munich,”

In response to Carol News, Rodriguez claimed that he is “on loan for two years” and is “having a good time [At Bayern] and happy”. Also, the Colombian responded to Ronaldo’s claims. He said, “They were going through a bad time and those are words that will not last long.”
According to Rodriguez, Real Madrid have enough good players and facilities to convert this campaign into a good one.
Cristiano Ronaldo has enjoyed the pleasure of playing with Rodriguez in the last summer.
James Rodriguez is undoubtedly someone who can induce a major change in the Real Madrid’s La Liga campaign. He has enough potential and experience with the ball that can make him worthy of a return to the Real Madrid.
However, the fact that he is willing to stay with the Germans rings a bell that now is a good time to look for fresh blood. Only they are Real’s final hope to defend their title this season.
