Bayern Munich are reportedly unwilling to activate their option to buy James Rodríguez, which means Liverpool could potentially pull off an incredible bargain. With Madrid likely to spend big in the summer, they will likely be looking to offload several players. Given James is on loan at the Allianz Arena, he would seem a likely candidate.

Bayern's unwillingness to take up the option seems to be more about them prioritizing other areas of the team, rather than them not rating James. Their chairman appears to be a fan of the Colombian but it seems James isn't getting on well with his manager, Niko Kovac, with neither seemingly interested in making the loan permanent.

James' time in Germany has still been productive, scoring 7 goals and picking up 11 assists in just 19 Bundesliga games last season, the Colombian also averaging 2.8 key passes per game. James would likely play as the most advanced of the midfield 3, just behind the striker. His main job will be to playing the final ball, and creating chances for the front three.
