Isco’s future at Real Madrid is uncertain with the Spain international currently struggling for game time at the Bernabeu.
Despite being popular among the fans, manager Zinedine Zidane seems to feel differently with the player regularly overlooked in favour of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.
Bayern have been tipped to rescue him from his Bernabeu nightmare, with the Bundesliga giants supposedly huge admirers.
But Spanish outlet Don Balon claim Rodriguez has learned the playmaker will not be heading to the Allianz Arena.
Rodriguez quit Real for Bayern Munich himself back in the summer.
The Colombia international opted to leave the club after Zidane chose to stick him on the bench week in, week out.
But the player,Don Balon report, doubts Isco will be joining him in Bavaria.
That’s because of the club’s deal for Leon Goretzka, whose signing from Schalke was announced last month.
Goretzka’s signing could have repercussions with Arturo Vidal tipped to leave Bayern for Manchester United.
Rodriguez, meanwhile, was recently lauded by Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes.
“In his current form, obviously James is a godsend for Bayern,” he said.
“It’s not easy, in another country with a different culture, a different mentality and he is doing very well, playing at a very high level, but he can do it better.
“It was well known that James was no longer satisfied in Madrid. He didn’t get the time that such a player deserves, and then it is logical to get the player in. James is an instant hit.
“How he acts and integrates, how he laughs again and is relaxed… He has arrived and is happy in Munich.”
