Goal of the transfer to Arsenal James Rodriguez now classified "European" after obtaining a Spanish passport, but Real Madrid still does not want it

Objective of the transfer ARSENAL James Rodriguez received a Spanish passport, which means he could free a place reserved for non-EU players at Real Madrid.

But the Los Blancos coach, Zinedine Zidane, does not see the midfielder, currently on loan at Bayern Munich, in his plans while making a review at the Bernabeu.

Bayern Munich lender James Rodriguez received a Spanish passport, but it seems unlikely that he would help him fight for his place at Real Madrid

Rodriguez, 27, joined Bayern in 2017 after falling under Zidane's command.

The Germans have an option to make the move permanent for £ 39.5m, but it is unlikely to keep the Colombian beyond this summer when his agreement expires.

The midfielder hoped that getting a European passport would increase his chances of returning to Madrid and regaining his place on the team.

La Liga teams must meet a quota of foreign players and can only register three non-Europeans.

Having earned Spanish citizenship, Rodriguez would therefore not occupy one of these places that could be used to host other South American stars such as Casemiro or Vinicius Jr.

But according to Marca, Zidane – charged with performing a review of the Bernabeu team this summer – has not changed his position on the Colombian's future.

Real Madrid is ready to sign Chelsea Eden Hazard star this summer to increase their attack options, apparently proving that the French coach has given up on Rodriguez.

Juventus was previously linked to a move for the midfielder.

And Arsenal had thought of lending Rodriguez in January, while Unai Emery was looking for a replacement for Mesut Ozil.

However, the German player and coach of the Gunners seems to have buried the hatchery while the midfield master has participated in the last nine games of the Arsenal.

Rodriguez has played 25 games with Bayern this season, scoring seven goals and adding six assists.
