"It is different compared to last year because I play less. If I have to go away because of lack of playing time, I will. But I would like to stay because I feel the love of the fans and the Bayern family," James Rodriguez said at the beginning of the month, expressing his discontent over the situation at the Allianz Arena.

The Colombian playmaker, who has been out of action since November 24 with a knee injury, is not happy with his 8 appearances in the Bundesliga (3 goals and 1 assist) and 3 in the Champions League (1 assist). He is doing the recovery program to return from injury, but it cannot be excluded that the player will leave Germany next summer.

Juventus have been vigilant for a long time in the race for James. As Tuttosport reveals, the Globe Soccer Awards scheduled in Dubai next week may be an opportunity to negotiate a deal for Rodriguez with Jorge Mendes and Giovani Branchini.

Fabio Paratici will also be at the ceremony in which Cristiano Ronaldo could win his fifth recognition of his career in the tenth edition of the award for the Best Player of the Year. Returning to James, his loan at Bayern will expire in June and the Bavarian club has an option to buy set at 42 million euros. Two possibilities: either the German club will sign him and sell him immediately, or the Colombian will return to Real and will be sold, with Juventus lurking in the background.‚Äč
