Colombia international, James Rodriguez has joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid.
James, 25, had been linked with a move away from the Champions League winners since the start of the summer as he found his game time limited after his big money arrival from Monaco in 2014.

The player had been linked with a number of European clubs but Bayern have now swooped in and secured his services until June 2019.
“We are very happy that we were able to secure this transfer. The commitment of James Rodriguez was the great wish of our coach, Carlo Ancelotti, after both had already successfully worked together in Madrid,” said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
“James is a versatile player. He is dangerous, creates many chances and shoots to a great standard. With this transfer, we have been able to raise the quality of our team without question.”
