Real Madrid is experiencing a serious dip in form since the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo as the likes of Marco Asensio, Isco and Lucas Vazquez are finding it difficult to create the necessary assists to get Los Blancos' forward goals and the experience of the Colombian could be needed to spark life back into the team.
With Julen Lopetegui sacked Santiago Solari was appointed as an interim coach and James sees it as an opportunity to challenge for a place under the former Real Madrid midfielder.
Solari has won two matches for Real Madrid but the European Champions remain in sixth place on the La Liga table and a January reinforcement is needed to put Real Madrid back on track to compete for trophies.
