At the same time, there is a significant risk that nothing will change from his situation in the club. Especially since several players in his position will return from injury.
Life at Real Madrid could become difficult for James
Life at Real Madrid may become even more difficult for James Rodriguez. At the same time, there is a significant risk that nothing will change from his situation in the club. Especially since several players in his position will return from injury. Zinedine Zidane was not too keen on keeping him at the club in the summer. But after the deal with Napoli and Atlético fell out, he had no other option. While his usage was again limited under the French coach. James received minutes due to injuries sustained by both Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard. However, given the fact that LaLiga now intends to return, both of these players must inevitably return to work. So they will move above the Colombian in the hierarchy.
Hope became eternal for James when it was announced that five substitutions would be allowed per match as soon as competition resumed. However, there are now several more players ahead to take these new spots. Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, and Asensio are likely to be the first choice. At the same time, Los Blancos will benefit more from using Vinicius Junior, and Rodrygo Goes as alternatives ahead of James, as they are the club’s future. James will sit next to Luka Jovic, Mariano Diaz, and Brahim Diaz as forgotten members of the squad, with only one of them being able to replace the fifth replacement.
The chances will be limited for James, and when they do arrive, he has to take them, especially in front of the transfer market, where he could be a valuable commodity. James will have to prove to the teams that he is still worth taking the fiscal game on himself.
