James Rodriguez: I'm very happy at Bayern

James Rodriguez insisted he is very happy at Bayern Munich despite reports he could cut short his loan deal to return to Real Madrid.

James is halfway through a two-year loan agreement after leaving Madrid for Bayern, who have the option to purchase the Colombia star permanently for a reported €42million in 2019.

The 27-year-old has excelled in Bavaria, where he helped Bayern retain the Bundesliga title last season, though he has been linked with a Madrid recall following Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational move to Juventus.

James, however, appears content at Bayern – who are seeking their seventh successive league trophy in 2018-19.

"So far, I'm still here and I've had a spectacular first season so I'm very happy there," James told Colombian TV program The Suso Show.

"I feel like the club and the fans love me very much."

James appeared 39 times in all competitions for Bayern last season, contributing eight goals and 15 assists.
