Colombia international James Rodriguez will reportedly ignore interest from Liverpool in order to link up with former boss Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich.

The 25-year-old has struggled for regular playing time at the Bernabeu since Ancelotti left for Bayern in the summer of 2015.

Speculation earlier in the suggested that the attacker could join one of Liverpool or Manchester United in the Premier League after previously been deemed to have applied for a UK working visa.

However, according to The Star, Rodriguez appears to have set his sights on a reunion with Ancelotti for whom he contributed 17 goals and 16 assists during his debut campaign with the European champions.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez is also on Bayern's radar for the summer, but Ancelotti could dive in to sign Rodriguez, should the Chilean decide against the move.

Rodriguez is likely to cost in upwards of £52m this summer despite his reduced playing under Zinedine Zidane during the ongoing campaign. He has made just seven La Liga starts for Real Madrid this term.
