AFP  |  Munich 

Colombian international James Rodriguez has joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan from Real Madrid, the Bundesliga club announced today. The two clubs have agreed on a two-year deal until June 30, 2019, with the option for Bayern to buy the 25-year-old midfielder who was the top scorer at the 2014 World Cup in with six goals. "We're delighted we've been able to complete this transfer," said Bayern chairman Karl-Rummenigge. "Signing James Rodriguez was our coach Carlo Ancelotti's biggest wish, following their successful spell working together in Madrid. "James is a very versatile player.

He's a goalscorer himself, he sets up a lot of goals and on top of that he's great from set-pieces. There's no question that this transfer further increases the quality in our team.
