James Rodríguez is barely three months into his two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich, but he is already yearning for a return to Real Madrid after Carlo Ancelotti was fired last month, according to SPORT.

After Real manager Zinedine Zidane confirmed in the last summer that he didn’t intend for Rodríguez to feature in his plans, the Colombian midfielder was keen for a loan move to Munich where he would be reunited with the man who brought him to Madrid from AS Monaco in 2014.

Rodríguez has had a tough start to life in Germany. He was pulled off at half-time in the 3-0 demolishing by Paris Saint-Germain, which would prove to be Ancelotti’s final game at the helm, and was benched in the next game against Hertha Berlin.

Now that Jupp Heynckes is back in charge it is thought that the German language will be used more in the dressing room, which Rodríguez feels will leave him even more isolated. He has also found it hard to get used to the much colder climate in Germany, according to reports.

The 26-year-old finds himself in a frustrating situation. He is not wanted by Zidane who looked to offload the Colombian in order to give more time on the field to Marco Asensio, who is thriving in Spain. If Rodríguez were to break the two-year loan agreement with Munich it looks like he would be sold on a permanent deal next year, but not without Real President Florentino Pérez recouping at least some of the £71m he spent after his outstanding performance at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The Columbian might be looking at World Cup in Russia as a glimmer of hope, but his native country have faltered in qualifying, including a defeat to Paraguay where they let a 1-0 goal lead slip in the final minutes. They need a win against Peru tonight to be certain of qualification.
