Bayern Munich signed Rodriguez from Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal back in the summer after the player struggled to earn the trust of Zinedine Zidane.
However, that move has backfired with the Colombia international currently struggling to find his best form over at the Allianz Arena.
Rodriguez seems to have struggled following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti as Bayern boss, with Jupp Hynckes struggling to get the best out of the playmaker.
And Spanish outlet Don Balon claim Bayern will not be taking up their option to sign him permanently, and have two reasons for wanting Rodriguez to return to parent club Real Madrid.
The first is that they believe he is not doing enough to adjust to life in his new surroundings.
Rodriguez’s attitude has been questioned before, when he was stuck in a rut over in Madrid.
And Bayern, it seems, have similar concerns.
The 26-year-old has supposedly made no effort to learn German and, when training, leaves at the first opportunity.
Furthermore, Don Balon say Rodriguez is yet to actually make any dressing room allies at Bayern.
The Colombia international has reportedly angered his team-mates by moaning about Bavarian life to close friend Marcelo.
And his poor attitude – coupled with his reluctance to make friends at the club – could see him return to Real at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Rodriguez has insisted he is happy at Bayern despite reports suggesting the opposite.
“Bayern are a huge club. They’re used to fighting for titles here, as was the case with my previous team Real Madrid,” he said.
“I expected Bayern to be exactly like that, so nothing has surprised me in that regard.
“Everyone involved with the club behaves in a way you’d expect of a club at the top of its game.
“There’s nothing more to say. Bayern are a 10 out of 10 club.”
