The coach of the German team said at a press conference that the Colombian has a current contract and will remain in the Bundesliga.

Niko Kovac, the new coach of Bayern Munich, is already in full preseason with the majority of the squad. This Saturday will play the first friendly against PSG in Austria, a game valid for the International Champions Cup.

In the press conference before the meeting, Kovac spoke about the situation of James Rodriguez, who was speculated that he could return to Real Madrid for this season. The DT said he has it and will remain in the German institution.

"We have a loan contract that is valid, it will only end if we take that option, it's going to stay here," said the Croatian-German coach.

James continues on vacation in Medellín and is recovering from his soleus muscle injury, which prevented him from performing at the top level in the 2018 World Cup.
