James: I'm getting closer to Real return

The Colombia international took part in training on Tuesday and later took to Twitter to assure fans his comeback is not far away

James Rodriguez has taken a step closer to a return to action with Real Madrid, after joining his team-mates for training on Tuesday.

The Colombia international has been sidelined since early February after he required surgery on a broken metatarsal injury sustained in a 2-1 victory against Sevilla.

James, who moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in a big-money move from Monaco in July, has been working on a personalised fitness plan in recent weeks and was able to take part in a group session with those Madrid players who are not away on international duty.
