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.
