James Rodriguez doesn’t feature in any of Bayern Munich’s promotional shots for next season’s kit, which could imply that the Bavarians will not take up the option to sign him from Real Madrid on a permanent basis.
You have to go on the German club’s official website to see the midfielder modelling the new strip because he doesn’t appear on the social media campaign.
This would hint that, barring an unlikely turnaround, the Colombian will return to Real Madrid when his two-year loan with Bayern ends this summer.
Robert Lewandowski, David Alaba, Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller among other first-team stars appear prominently in promotional videos and camera shoots.
Thiago, Jerome Boateng, Niklas Sule and Alphonso Davies aren’t involved but Rodriguez is the only world star not to appear in the kit campaign.
