Confirmed: James Rodriguez joins Bayern


James Rodriguez has joined Bayern Munich from Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal, the champions have announced. The two clubs have agreed on a two-year deal until June 30, 2019, with the option for Bayern to buy the 25-year-old midfielder who was the top scorer at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with six goals.The Colombian’s future has been in doubt at Bernabeu after he was left out of Real’s squad for the champions league final win over Juventus. He has been linked to Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain.

We’re delighted we’ve been able to complete this transfer,” said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Signing James Rodriguez was our coach Carlo Ancelotti’s biggest wish, following their successful spell working together in Madrid. “James is a very versatile player. He’s a goalscorer himself, he sets up a lot of goals and on top of that he’s great from set-pieces. There’s no question that this transfer further increases the quality in our team. A statement on Bayern’s website says the attacking midfielder will join his new team mates on Sunday for Bayern’s 12-day Audi Summer tour to China and Singapore.

He said that EMTS had a valid and subsisting agreement with the Etisalat Group. According to him, the agreement entitles EMTS to use the Etisalat brand notwithstanding the recent changes within the company. “Indeed, discussions are ongoing between EMTS and Etisalat Group pertaining to the continued use of the brand. “EMTS will issue a formal statement once discussions are concluded. “The final outcome on the use of the brand in no way affects the operations of the business as our full range of services remain available to our customers,’’ he said.

Permit me, if you ve read something like this in this blog before to repeat it again. I like talking about how decisions affect the future. Today I would like to discuss a new perspective that I got. Its from Matt 13:1-23 (I’m a christian so I like discussing the Bible.) Feel free to give your opinions. Thanks. I’m looking forward to reading your comments.

The Bible is a complete book. Here is a parable of the sower. This farmer or sower sowed these seeds the same way; by “SCATTERING”. These seeds came from the same source, sown the same way but produced different results. Why? Relational to human beings, these seeds made different decisions and choices. One chose not to understand; the other chose not to grow deep; the other chose to lose focus; the other chose to be an overcomer, a conqueror, to be victorious, effective, have a good testimony, and productive.

Note: All of them had the same temptation but at the end of the day one chose to stand out. Oh man, you are inexcusable! As a man thinketh in his heart so he is. Your Victory or Defeat starts from within you. God is so gracious that he gave us power of WILL. What we do with it is left to us. Your decision today is your tomorrow. Whatever you have tomorrow is a by-product of your decision today. Make wise decisions and choices today for a better tomorrow.

Please feel free to comment on this blog. Would be happy to read your opinions. Thanks

A research team at Tokyo Medical and Dental University analyzed blood samples from 356 healthy men and women between the ages of 20 and 90. Continue reading
