Bayern signing James Rodriguez says he is dreaming big and fully motivated as he prepares to start his career in Germany.
James has agreed to join Bayern on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid, with the Bundesliga club holding an option to buy him permanently.
The attacking midfielder is set to formally sign for the German champions on Wednesday, which is also his 26th birthday, after finishing the last of his medical checks.
In his first interview after his move to Bayern was announced, James revealed he is setting his sights high.
“I’m very happy and looking forward to being at a huge club and in a great team,” the Colombia international said to Bayerntv.
“Everyone knows what Bayern stands for and what the club is about.
“It is a new culture, a new club, a new life. But I’m really fired up, I’m dreaming big, and I’m hoping for great success here.”
