James Rodríguez is back. The Colombian player rejoined the squad this Tuesday and completed a training session with the players who were not called up by their national teams.

James will be back on the squad for Real Madrid's next game against Granada on April 5th. His presence has been greatly missed, considering that Ancelotti ended up having a very thin roster after the injury to James' toe on the match against Sevilla.

Isco and Gareth Bale will now have to step their game up if they want to keep their spot after James' recovery. This is certainly good news for Real Madrid, as the Colombian will also be able to play the Champions League Quarterfinals against Atlético de Madrid next month, playing a key part on Real Madrid's playmaking abilities.
