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.

Real have struggled in recent weeks and having the 23-year-old available for the run-in would be a boost to Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who trail Barcelona by four points in La Liga after losing 2-1 to their rivals in Sunday’s Clasico.
