James reacts to Real Madrid return after Bayern defeat

James Rodriguez has revealed that he will gladly continue his stay at Bayern Munich after his original loan from Real Madrid expires.

The Colombia international has impressed a great deal at the Allianz Arena since joining on a two-year loan deal last July 

and he admits that the Bundesliga has surpassed his expectations.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed last month that they have the option to sign James on a permanent deal for €42million, although he stressed there was no rush over triggering the clause.

 James himself admits he would be delighted to stay in the Bundesliga, telling reporters after Bayern's 3-1 win over Cologne on Saturday: "I'm doing very well.

 "It's a good league here in Germany, the stadiums are full. I came here with a different perception.

 "I'm fine, I hope I stay here. I feel very good."

James has registered seven goals and 11 assists in 22 Bundesliga appearances in 2017-18.

Interestingly, the forward scored on his return to Santigo Bernabeu but it was not enough to see Bayern go past Madrid.
