Bayern Munich officially marks the departure of James Rodriguez


Rummenigge: “James asked us not to exercise the option to buy”

Bayern made official what was already an open secret. James Rodriguez, after two years on loan, will not continue in Munich. According to the club in his statement, the Colombian international requested not to exercise the purchase option, which Bayern has fulfilled.

The Colombian will now return to Real Madrid, albeit for a short time. Zidane does not count on him and Madrid is already looking for the destination. The repurchase option that Bayern had for the player was 42 million, a figure lower than what the white club now expects for the Colombian. “I thank James, on behalf of Bayern, for these two years of success, the Bundesliga twice and the Cup with him, we also reached the Champions League semifinals with him last season, James made an important contribution to all of these success, we wish James the best for his future, “he explains. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. The club also made public the words of thanks of James: “I want to thank the whole club and the fans, who have always given us a lot of support.” They were two unforgettable years for me in Munich and I have always felt very good here. I bring the best memories and I wish Bayern the best for the future. “
