Madrid & James drop transfer hints

Since his summer return from Bayern, James Rodríguez has been unused by Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane in Los Blancos’ pre-season fixtures.

James Rodríguez has earned a Real Madrid recall… on social media, at least. Club and player now follow each other again on Twitter and Instagram.

It was Madrid who made the first move on Monday, re-following the Colombian international on the two platforms (and adding Andriy Lunin on Instagram only, as the Ukrainian goalkeeper does not have a Twitter account). On Wednesday, James then reciprocated.
