PSG Fuel Speculation About Interest In James Rodríguez After Posting On His Social Media

Paris Saint-Germain have continued to keep their interest high in James Rodríguez after posting a message on his social media account.

The 27-year-old Colombian attacking midfielder's loan deal with Bayern Munich is set to expire at the end of the season -- although the Bundesliga side do have the option to make the move permanent -- but it's highly unlikely that he will return to parent club Real Madrid in the summer.

Instead, the Ligue 1 champions have previously shown interest in Rodríguez and are keeping a close eye on him.

The Colombia international took to his social media accounts to post a picture of him training and accompanied it with the message of "It's back," which comes after he missed the match against RB Leipzig due to an injury.

Unsurprisingly, fans have spotted that the verified PSG page on Facebook left a clapping emoji on his post.

It was recently reported that the French side were interested in Rodríguez as a potential replacement for Neymar should he leave the club in the summer.

PSG are preparing to revamp their squad after a disappointing run in the Champions League this season.

Thomas Tuchel's side are expected to snap up Ander Herrera, who announced that his time at Manchester United had come to an end, on a free transfer.

Speaking of the Red Devils, it has been reported that PSG have made their 'first approach' for David de Gea to replace the ageing Gianluigi Buffon.

Bayern Munich were held to a 0-0 draw against RB Leipzig on Saturday, missing out on the chance to capture the Bundesliga title with a match in hand.

Despite the setback, Bavarians head coach Niko Kovač expects his side to beat Eintracht Frankfurt and seal the title ahead of rivals Borussia Dortmund.

"We have the chance to become champions next week with a point or a victory. Life writes the best stories. I can play against my old club and can try to win the championship," he told the press (via Goal).

"Although, I know Frankfurt have goals in them and they also want to enter European competition, not only in the Europa League but also in the Champions League. It won't be easy."

Should Rodríguez leave Bayern Munich and sign for PSG in the summer?
