Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez has suffered a knee injury with the Colombian national team and will return to the Spanish capital, where he will have tests to confirm or deny a potential knee sprain.

If this injury is confirmed, James would need around a month to recover properly from this sprained knee, just when he was finally available after missing the last month with another injury.

James started the season being a relevant player for coach Zinedine Zidane even though he was reported to be on his way out of the club all summer long. It’s clear that James is not on Zidane’s plans right now, so he might as well receive some interest from other clubs and if a potential offer is good enough.

The Colombian midfielder is skilled enough to make an impact for the club but right now he is behind all Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Isco (midfielders), Rodrygo, Bale and Vazquez (right wingers) in the rotation.
