James Rodriguez wants to leave Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga champions will not look to activate his buyout clause this summer.

The Colombia international struggled to make a mark at Real Madrid before his loan to Bayern, but after failing to offer much consistency for the German outfit they will not look to extend his two-season loan deal.

The ​attacking midfielder was a huge target for a number of top clubs after his performances at the 2014 World Cup, yet ​Real Madrid were the ones to capture his signature.

After making a limited amount of appearances for Los Blancos throughout the 2016/17 season, the South American was loaned to the ​Bundesliga giants where he has spent the last two years.

Amid question marks over his future, ​Sky Sports Germany report that the 27-year-old 'does not see his future in Munich' and wants a return to either his parent club or another outfit of similar prestige.


Rodriguez scored a mediocre seven goals in 20 Bundesliga games for ​Die Roten in the 2018/19 campaign, managing three of those during a ​6-0 win over Mainz in March.

Rodriguez will be a wanted man this summer if he is granted an exit from Real Madrid, who he is contracted with until 2021. Italian giants ​Juventus have been linked, but a concrete offer from the Serie A side is yet to be submitted.


Despite no indication that Juve have made Rodriquez a priority signing in the summer transfer window, the midfielder would offer rich experience for La Vecchia Signora if they were to pursue his signature.
