Top 5 Bayern Munich players in the 2017-18 season
#3 James Rodriguez
At the beginning of the season, Bayern stunned the football universe by announcing a two-year loan deal for James Rodriguez.
Falling out of favour at Zidane's Real Madrid, this was the Colombian's opportunity to prove his value to the world.
Returning from a hamstring injury, Rodriguez took his time to integrate into the squad. Once past the initial hiccups, the attacking midfielder never looked back.
From controlling the tempo in midfield to creating opportunities in the attacking third, Rodriguez was doing it all. His prowess with the dead-ball was icing on the cake.
In 39 matches, Rodriguez scored eight goals and provided 14 assists. He was at his best against teams like Schalke, PSG and Bayer Leverkusen. Rodriguez' performance earned him a spot in the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League squad of the season.
