James Rodriguez is “comfortable” at Bayern Munich and would love to return to Real Madrid, according to his foster father.

Rodriguez joined Real for all of the money in summer 2014, but struggled to make much of an impact in the Spanish capital.

He joined Bayern on a two-season loan last summer but has fallen out of favour under Niko Kovac.

Arsenal have investigated the possibility of taking over his loan at the cost of about £3m.

Juan Carlos Restrepo, the Colombian’s foster father, has offered an insight into his current state of mind.

“He is comfortable in Munich,” Restrepo said.

“I don’t have news about it, but there may be offers based on those rumours coming from England.

“He is calm and he feels that he’s at a good level again and that he’s physically strong.

“That gives us a perspective that he is happy, motivated and working well, as he is eager to achieve new success.

“Real Madrid are one of his loves, but unfortunately he had to look at a different course.

“However, that does not mean that he doesn’t love Los Blancos, an institution that allowed him to enjoy beautiful moments.

“Inside his heart, given that he is a fan of Real Madrid, he will contemplate the possibility of returning.

“Real Madrid own his rights and I imagine that if he has good performances then his return would be possible.”
