Bayern Munich‘s on-loan superstar James Rodriguez does not intend to make his move to the club permanent despite becoming one of the most critical players for the German champions in recent months.
The legendary German club’s UEFA Champions League round-of-16 defeat to Liverpool has marked the beginning of a transition phase for them under Niko Kovac, which reportedly does not include James as part of their plan.
Marca report that James is nearing the end of his two-year loan with Bayern from Real Madrid, but the German club is yet to execute its option to sign the Colombian maestro at the end of the season for 42 million euros, which is something that puts their desire to keep the player in question.
However, despite issues with Kovac, James has been a regular starter in the Bayern squad since December end last year and the club’s board is positive on making his loan move permanent in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Despite Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid, James is said to still want to meet up with Perez and the French coach to discuss if there is still a place for him at the Spanish club. If that does not work out, he will reportedly look for a move to Juventus or Napoli.
