The daily soap opera came to an end today, as Real Madrid and Colombian national team captain James Rodriguez put the final ink on a deal to send the cafetero to FC Bayern Munich on a two year loan.
The loan for James, still in his prime at 25 years old, runs until June 2019. Real was able to make the deal happen by agreeing to flexible terms, reportedly for 5 million euro per season with the option to buy at the end of the contract for 35.2 million euro.

Ancelotti, Bayern’s coach, runs a 4-3-2-1 formation. James’ position on the field is still not clear, but it’s likely that he’ll play in the middle on the right side.
