Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez could part ways with the Bundelsiga side and head back to Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich are considering a deal that could see James Rodriguez return to his former club in 2019. The Colombian midfielder fears lack of playing time in Munich. Should Bayern decide to part ways, they would trigger the clause and sell the player back to Spain with a profit.
Rodriguez helped Bayern maintain their domestic hegemony in 2017/18 by contributing seven goals and 11 assists as the Bavarians won a sixth straight league title.
Bayern host Benfica on group stage Matchday 1 on 19 September, with further games to come against Dutch side Ajax and Greek outfit AEK Athens.
