James' Future Not a Priority for Bayern

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted Bayern Munich were in no haste to conclude if they wanted to use their option to buy James Rodriguez.

James is in the final season of his two-year loan deal from Real Madrid, with Bayern holding an option to buy thereby making the move permanent.

Rummenigge said the Bundesliga club would take some time in deciding if they wanted to hold onto the 27-year-old Colombia international player, who reportedly wants a return to his club, Madrid.

"In our agreement we have an option that we can make use of until 15th June 2019. We are in November now so I don't think it makes sense to speak about it now already," the Bayern chairman said on Thursday.

"I am of the opinion that James played great football last season. He was obviously one of our best players as far as I can remember.

"The game in Madrid [in the Champions League in May] he scored the 2-2 and then all the Madrid fans were applauding him."

Rummenigge said he doubted James, who has made just 11 appearances this season, would return from a knee injury he sustained this year.
