James Rodriguez could face a tough summer ahead with parent club Real Madrid not interested in keeping him and Bayern unlikely to make his loan move permanent, according to reports in Spain.
The Colombia international is in the second year of a two-year loan deal with Bundesliga giants Bayern and his future will once again be up in the air this summer.
Rodriguez, who burst onto the international scene at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, has previously hinted he would like a return to the Bernabeu and look to force his way back into Madrid’s first-team plans.

However, according to Spanish publication Marca, Rodriguez doesn’t fit into Zinedine Zidane’s plans at Madrid and they won’t change their stance, despite freeing up a space for another European player.
Madrid are in hot pursuit of Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who would be in direct competition with Rodriguez, and are confident they can finally get their man this summer.
Meanwhile, Marca also report that Bayern are unlikely to make Rodriguez’s loan deal permanent.

This means the 27-year-old could face a potentially awkward summer but there is still interest in his services.
Serie A giants Juventus – on the brink of winning an eighth-consecutive Serie A title – are monitoring his situation.
Premier League clubs have also shown interest, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
