Bayern Munich’s 13 strict diet rules for James Rodriguez leaked as they bid to transform Colombian flop

The Colombian has been in and out of the side under Niko Kovac, and has been slapped with 13 rules he must follow by the club's medical staff.

Rodriguez – who will return to Real Madrid in the summer following a two-year loan spell in Bavaria – has struggled for form this campaign.

He has failed to replicate the impressive performances that yielded eight goals and 14 assists last term.

However the 27-year-old – who has chipped in with three goals in 11 Bundesliga appearances this season – did get his first start since November 3 in Bayern's 3-1 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

And as Bayern look to challenge for the league title, the German giants are looking to get James back in shape.

Despite his inconsistent form, it had been reported that Arsenal were interested in his services during the winter transfer window.

But they could miss out on the two-time Champions League winner to rivals Tottenham, who could be offered Rodriguez by Real in a deal that would see Christian Eriksen move in the opposite direction.
