Bayern to make James Rodriguez deal permanent

Last summer Real Madrid loaned out James Rodriguez to Bayern Munich on a two-year deal, which saw the Bavarians commit to paying Madrid the sum of €13 milllion. Now, according to Marca, they are willing to make the deal permanent by activating the €42 million option to buy included in the the original loan agreement.

The Colombian attacking midfielder shone in the 2014 World Cup, earning a move from Monaco to Real that summer; but things haven’t really gone his way since. Looking for more balance in the team, manager Zinedine Zidane change the default formation from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3 upon his arrival, and this is where Rodriguez lost his place in the starting XI to Brazilian defensive powerhouse Casemiro.

He made a slow start to life at the Allianz Arena, but he soon blended in and now he’s a very important player for Bayern. Both the club and James are keen on building their relationship further, and the next step would be to make his move permanent, as Real have already been informed of their intentions.
