James Rodriguez still hasn't found his place with Real Madrid. Although the Colombian midfielder provided good energy off the bench on Real's win against Sporting Portugal some weeks ago, he hasn't been able to replicate that kind of effort whenever Zidane has given him the chance to play, and that's precisely why Juventus will try to sign him on a loan deal this winter, according to Il Corriere Dello Sport.

Juventus were already after James all summer long, per several reports from Italy. James was on the verge of leaving Real Madrid but ultimately decided to stay and fight for a starting spot.

It's clear that James needs minutes to improve his form and regain some confidence. However, sending him on a loan deal to such a big club might not be worth it.

Other clubs like Arsenal, Manchester City and Atletico de Madrid are paying close attention to James' situation and could send Real Madrid an offer, if the report from Il Corriere is accurate.
