Lewandowski or Reus? Sancho or Thiago? Will Hasebe fly the flag for Asia? Or maybe starlet Havertz will earn a place? YOUR OPINION matters so it is time to cast your vote for the Official Bundesliga Team of the Season at!

But after a three-year stint at Real Madrid did not result in sufficient game time for the Colombian, a loan move to Bayern Munich has just proven to be the tonic required.

When he does get onto the field, he immediately assumes playmaker-in-chief duty and has regularly shown why he has been so highly regarded throughout his career.

With his loan deal coming to an end in the summer, there has been speculation over his future and big-spending French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been the latest club linked with him.

James in on course to win two Bundesliga titles in as many seasons.

Nonetheless, even if James does depart the Allianz Arena, it could be on a high as part of the official Bundesliga Team of the Season, with a second Bundesliga winner’s medal to boot.
