Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez has insisted that he is focused on Bayern Munich?, despite rumours linking him with an imminent exit from the club.
Rodriguez is approaching the end of a two-year loan spell at the club from Real Madrid, and the Bundesliga giants will have the option to purchase Rodriguez at the end of the season. However, whether they will opt to do so has been the subject of much speculation, and the 27-year-old has found himself linked to a host of European clubs as a result of the uncertainty.
Speaking to ?Bild, ?Rodriguez insisted that he is not thinking about his future and is instead concentrating on finishing the season with ?Bayern.
Rodriguez has been linked with a move to many different clubs, one of which is ?Juventus. His biological father, Wilson Rodriguez, has urged his son to consider a move to the ?Serie A giants, telling Sport Bild (via ?Eurosport):
“The way I see Italian football at the moment, it would be a good decision.”
His adoptive father, Juan Carlos Restrepo, has also spoken about Rodriguez’s future, insisting that he could still return to ?Real. He told ?Marca:
“He is calm and he feels that he’s at a good level again and that he’s physically strong.
“Real Madrid are one of his loves, but unfortunately he had to look at a different course.
“Inside his heart, given that he is a fan of Real Madrid, he will contemplate the possibility of returning.
