James Rodríguez has returned to Real Madrid after a two-year spell at FC Bayern.

The Colombian netted 15 goals in all competitions for the German outfit, winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles in the process.

Now the superstar is looking to work his way back into the Los Blancos reckoning ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

After success at FC Porto, Rodríguez moved to AS Monaco where he found the net 10 times in 38 appearances before heading to the World Cup with Colombia.

The midfielder lit up the world stage at the competition in Brazil, finishing the World Cup as the top scorer.

The incredible tournament saw Rodríguez secure his dream move to Real Madrid.

The midfielder scored his first goal for the club in the Spanish Super Cup against Atletico Madrid and his first Champions League goal in a 5-1 hammering of Basel.

Rodríguez ended his first season in Madrid with 17 goals as Los Blancos won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

The Colombian remained part of a Madrid side for the following two seasons as he helped the club to two Champions League titles.

James ended his first spell at Real Madrid with 36 goals from 111 appearances and will be hoping to build on this season.
