James Rodriguez spent the last two years on loan at German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich whom he signed for from 13-time European champions Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich were said to have paid £11m for his loan transfer with the option to make it permanent for £37m but the Bavarian giants decided against that option.
