The 26-year-old joined Bayern on a two-year loan deal and the German giants have a non-obligatory €40 million (R613m) purchase option at the end of the two years.

If Bayern would decide not to purchase Rodriguez, he would return to Los Blancos where he still has a contract until June 2020.

The attacking midfielder will earn €8 million (R123m) for his first season in Germany, while this figure rises to €8.2 million (R126m) in the second year, as stated by Marca.

Bayern will also pay Real €5 million (R77m) per season for the services of James, a figure that could increase based on the success of Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

At Bayern, Rodriguez will link up with his former coach Ancelotti, who already coached him at Madrid in 2014/15.

James leaves the Santiago Bernabeu after scoring 36 goals and assisting another 41 in 111 appearances for the Spanish giants.
