Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez can stay at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu after all, according to the latest reports
The Colombian playmaker has been facing an uncertain future in the Spanish capital ever since completing his two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich.
Although his faith seemed to be far away from Madrid only a couple of weeks ago, the 28-year-old attacking midfielder can stay with Los Blancos in the light of the latest events.

After Marco Asensio sustained a nasty knee-injury against Arsenal in the 2019 International Champions Cup, Zinedine Zidane has left short of reliable attacking options.
As a result, the French manager may give Rodriguez another chance to demonstrate his class in the white jersey, even though he has been deemed surplus to requirements at the beginning of the summer transfer window.
Napoli and Atletico Madrid have been trying to lure the former AS Monaco star away from Real, with both, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, lurking in the shadows.
However, a shock twist regarding James’ future may see him stay on Los Blancos’ books next season and fight for his place in the starting eleven.
