Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was quick to send a good luck message to fellow Real Madrid player James, who signed with Bayern Munich on a two year loan deal today.
"Panita*, I wish you das Beste except when we meet in the Champions League of course. Good luck, James!" tweeted Sergio Ramos, just after the Colombian's departure from the Bernabéu was confirmed. (*The equivalent of buddy or mate in Colombia)
James joins up with Ancelotti again
James leaves Real Madrid after three seasons. After a successful first season under Ancelotti, James struggled to fit into Zidane's plans and saw his playing time reduced. He didn't even make it onto the bench for last season's Champions League final against Juventus. He now leaves on loan to Bayern Munich, who have a purchase option at the end of the two year period.
