The Colombian was on a two-year loan deal with the German giants, who had a buy option for the 27-year-old. However, the club now announced they won’t activate the €42 million (R697 million) clause.

"I thank James on behalf of FC Bayern Munich for two successful years,” Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club’s official website.

"We have twice won the German Championship and the DFB Cup with him. In addition, we reached the semi-finals of the Champions League with him last season.

"James made an important contribution to all these successes. We wish James all the best for his future."

The player himself thanked the German club and will now return to Real Madrid, who are reportedly also not keen on his services. He leaves Bayern after making 67 appearances during which he scored 15 goals and assisted in another 20.

"My big thanks go to the entire club and the fans who have always given us great support," he said.

"It was two unforgettable years for me in Munich and I have always felt very well here. I take the best memories and wish FC Bayern the best for the future. "

At this stage it seems unlikely Rodriguez will stay at Real, with Zinedine Zidane believed to be not keen on his services.
