Bayern Munich attacker James: It never happened with Zidane

Bayern Munich attacker James Rodriguez has hinted he's unlikely to return to parent club Real Madrid this summer.

James' two season loan is coming to an end, but with Zinedine Zidane back in charge of Real, the Colombia captain admits a return is now unlikely.

He told AS: "We'll see what happens. There are still many games to play.

"It never happened with Zidane. (But) I think it will not affect my future."

Bayern retain a €42m option to buy James outright at the end of the loan.
