Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid are set to be a busy club in the summer transfer window as the French manager gets ready to spend big on an overhaul of the team.
The manager has been linked with a move for some of the best stars in Europe to help the squad compete at the highest level next season and this might see a number of players leave the club come the end of the season.
The likes of Isco and Alvaro Morata have extensively been linked with an exit recently but one player who is certainly moving closer to an exit is Colombian star, James Rodriguez.
The 25-year old came into the spotlight with a sizzling World Cup in 2014 which earned him a place at the Bernabeu.
But he has not been able to cement a place at the club and has been on the fringes of the first team under Zidane this season.
He is growing frustrated at the lack of playing time and is ready for an exit and has been linked with a move to a number of Premier League clubs along with German giants PSG.
However, it is now reported that the playmaker has already decided which club he will play for next.
According to reports from Spanish media outfit Don Balon, Rodriguez is set to snub offers from England and France this summer as he favours a move to the Allianz Arena this summer.
Carlo Ancelotti, who has worked with the Colombian in his time at the Bernabeu is interested in getting him to Bayern but it will be interesting to see if Rodriguez will walk into the first team in Germany.
However, his price tag could prove to be a problem for the German giants.
Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp is reportedly readying a £43m bid for the star, which will be a club record for the Reds but Rodriguez is reportedly adamant that a move to Bayern is the best option for him this summer.
Zidane is ready to spend big on Eden Hazard from Chelsea and if he can get his man, the Colombian star will have even fewer chances of moving into the first team next season.
So it is best for James Rodriguez to quit the Spanish club this summer but is Bayern the right place for him?
