Important news about James Rodríguez. According to Marca, the Colombian player could make his return to Real Madrid's lineup in the home match against Granada, following the next FIFA break that begins right after El Clásico on March 22nd.

James Rodríguez's recovery has gone faster than expected, as other players with his same injury like Xabi Alonso spent more time sidelined. James always was a crucial player in Ancelotti's formation, and he will be expected to be back on the starting lineup as soon as he's fit. However, considering how well Isco has been playing since being an undisputed starter, it will not be easy for Carlo Ancelotti to make room for James in the Starting XI.

James should be 100% ready to play the Champions League Quarterfinals and the last games of the season. Whether that would be enough for his team to turn things around and compete for the titles still remains to be seen.
