Official: James Rodriguez joins Bayern Munich on two-year loan

Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez has officially joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal, the German club has announced.

Rodriguez, 25, had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United all summer long until the last couple of weeks when the rumours died down somewhat and out of nowhere Bayern Munich have swooped to sign him.

Well, that has taken everybody by surprise because Bayern had hardly been linked with Rodriguez so fair play to Carlo Ancelotti for getting it done and dusted almost on the sly. But what does it mean for United?

I suppose the first question to ask is whether or not Mourinho was truly interested in signing Rodriguez. The Colombian attacker certainly had goals and assists to his game but Ed Woodward’s been pursuing Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan a lot more intensely than he did with Rodriguez, which may well be indicative of the situation as a whole.

United are linked with so many players every summer that it is inevitable we ‘miss out’ on targets and some fans may feel that way with Rodriguez joining Bayern Munich. I suppose it all depends on who you wanted us to sign.

Bizarrely, it looks like Bayern Munich have got Rodriguez ridiculously cheap:

Real Madrid are definitely not having the best of summer transfer windows are they?
