Bayern Munich ready to buy outright Real Madrid midfielder James

Bayern Munich are ready to sign outright Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez.

BILD says Bayern are entirely satisfied with his performance since arriving in the Bundesliga. They will exercise the option to buy the Colombian in the next transfer market, since James is currently only on loan there until 2018-19.

When James arrived at Bayern this passed summer, they paid five million for each season on loan and with the option then to buy for €35.2 million (this does not include the player's salary, which Bayern also pay at €8 million per year).

If they execute the clause in 2019, Real Madrid will receive €45.2 million for the exit of the player, who cost €80 million in 2014.
