James Rodriguez hasn’t been available for a while and it seems that he will need one more week to recover from the muscle issues that are bothering him, according to a report from Agencia EFE.

James has shown great commitment this season even though he was rumored to be on his way out of the club for all summer long. He has completed solid performances when he’s been given the chance to play but unluckily enough for him he just hasn’t stayed healthy when other midfielders were out as well.

The Colombian player got some minutes against Galatasaray but apparently had this very same small injury. After the game, Real’s medical staff told James that he needed to stop in order to recover properly and be ready for what’s ahead.

It won’t be easy for James to get playing time after Luka Modric’s recovery and Fede Valverde’s solid performances in the midfield, so his potential departure in the winter transfer market should not be ruled out.
