Netherlands and Bayern Munich legend Arjen Robben has announced that he will leave the club after the end of the current season.
The 27-year-old is quoted by Bild as saying: "I'd like to stay because I feel the love of the fans. It is the end of a very good and long period", the winger said.
James told those in attendance at a meeting with a Bayern fan club: "It's a different situation to past year because I am playing less".
Robben has 143 goals and 101 assists in 305 games for Bayern since joining from Real Madrid in 2009.
It remains to be seen what Robben's next move will be, although he has previously hinted that he will finish his career at home-town club Groningen in the Eredivisie.More news: Virat Kohli dancing down the track is pure eargasm!

Since then, he provided 65 assists and 98 goals in overall 198 Bundesliga appearances to lift seven Bundesliga titles, four German Cups and the 2013 UEFA Champions League, where he netted the victor.
The 34-year-old pulls out the simple but effective "cut inside" on an nearly weekly basis - the guy even uses it when there's an open goal right in front of him. Robben scored twice in the Champions League on Tuesday, with his both efforts being trademark Robben goals - Cutting past the defenders from the right wing and sending a thunderbolt in the net with his left foot.
Arjen Robben has been at the heart of nearly all of Bayern Munich's attacking play.
"I may move on". "There are players who have written down the history of this club".
James added: "I hope that I will recover completely in one to two weeks". Father time is undefeated, and for Robben it is now time to ride off into the sunset.
