James Rodriguez is reportedly ready to snub a summer switch to Arsenal.
The 27-year-old is due to return to parent club Real Madrid at the end of the season when his two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich expires.
Bayern are unlikely to take up the £36.8million clause in the deal to make the move permanent, leaving Rodriguez in limbo.
Arsenal were linked with a shock swoop for the Colombian in January and look set to be frustrated again in the next window.
Marca Colombia claim Rodriguez wants to return to the Bernabeu to try and prove himself to Santiago Solari.
