New Bayern Munich signing James Rodriguez has thanked Real Madrid for "three wonderful years" after leaving the Spanish and European champions.

James swapped Madrid for Bundesliga giants Bayern on a two-year loan deal after falling down the pecking order in the Spanish capital.

However, James – who has the option of a permanent transfer to Bayern after reuniting with former head coach Carlo Ancelotti – had nothing but praise for Madrid's supporters.

"Dear Madridistas, I am grateful for all the good moments we have shared in three wonderful years," James posted on Instagram on Tuesday.
