James Rodriguez has finally decided he wants to move to Bayern Munich, according to reports.
The Colombian has struggled for game time under Zinedine Zidane this season with competition rife in the Frenchman’s midfield.
Rodriguez knows his time may be running out in the Spanish capital with Zidane unlikely to use him in his plans going forward and Real chief Florentino Perez already giving the green light to his sale.
But the midfielder is not short of options.
Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been monitoring his situation in recent months.
Jurgen Klopp is thought to be a big fan of the 25-year-old with reports in Spain suggesting he is willing to fork out £43m for his services.
United are also in the hunt for him with Jose Mourinho keen to bolster his attack.
Chelsea meanwhile, are said to be tracking Rodriguez with Real ready to offer him to the Blues in part-exchange for Eden Hazard.
But Spanish publication Don Balon claim Rodriguez will leave his Premier League suitors disappointed with his heart set on a move to Bayern Munich.
The report suggests Rodriguez is keen to reunite with former Real boss Carlo Ancelotti at the Allianz Arena.
The Italian boss is also said to be open to having him move to Germany but his price tag could prove difficult in convincing Bayern chiefs to sign him.
Perez is thought to be holding out for offers of at least £50m.
