Real Madrid loaned Rodriguez to Bayern Munich back in the summer after the Colombia international had struggled for game time under Zinedine Zidane.

The 25-year-old has recovered from a shaky start to be a big hit at the Allianz Arena, helping Jupp Heynckes’ men take the Bundesliga by storm for the sixth season on the trot.


However, reports have claimed Rodriguez may leave in the summer with a fine showing at the World Cup in Russia likely to see his value rocket.

And Spanish outlet Diario Gol have sensationally reported that Rodriguez has told Bayern he will be joining Liverpool when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Reds have cash to splash following Philippe Coutinho’s £142million move to Barcelona last month.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp made the surprising decision not to replace the Brazil international, instead placing his faith in current attackers Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

However, that decision has already come back to haunt Liverpool with the club recently being dumped out of the FA Cup by West Brom.

And Diario Gol say Klopp has earmarked Rodriguez as the perfect player to help them challenge for silverware next season.

Rodriguez has reportedly told Bayern he intends to stay in Germany for just one season.

And he is supposedly relishing the chance to play at Liverpool and help the club rival the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea for silverware in the future.

Rodriguez has been in fine form in recent weeks.

But talk of a move to England is nothing new.

Manchester United and Chelsea both weighed up signing him in the summer but Rodriguez ultimately chose to chance his arm at Bayern instead.
