Real Madrid have reportedly decided to keep James Rodríguez at the club this season.
James spent the last two seasons at Bayern Munich, who opted not to make his loan move permanent for €42m.
And despite strong speculation linking him with Atlético Madrid, El Chiringuito report that Madrid officials want the Colombian to stay.
Marco Asensio has been ruled out for the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament, which opened up the door for James’ reintegration.
It remains unclear whether Zinedine Zidane has any intention of using the midfielder – who he famously fell out with during his first spell in charge.
After falling out of Zinedine Zidane's plans at the Santiago Bernabeu, James spent the last two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich.
The German giants opted against signing the playmaker on a permanent deal, but Napoli and Atletico Madrid were two of the clubs interested in acquiring him ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
However, Madrid have now performed a remarkable U-turn and are ready to welcome James back into their first-team squad.
Marco Asensio suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury earlier this week and Gareth Bale is edging closer to the exit door, opening up space for James's reintegration.
The Colombia international could play on the right flank next season, although he will have to compete for game time with Isco, Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez.
Los Blancos are also continuing their pursuit for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
Its going to be interesting to see how the things unfold for Real and we will keep our audience updated here
