Zinedine Zidane has reacted to further reports surrounding James Rodriguez and what his Real Madrid future could be with the strongest reports of his exit from the club surfacing this week.
Marca reported James had been informed by Real president Florentino Perez he was free to leave and had to find a new club with that leading to reports of Premier League interest in the Colombian international.
Zidane has not only once again said James, consistently linked with Manchester United and more so this week Arsenal and Chelsea, isn’t leaving the club he doesn’t want him to leave either.
A clearly frustrated head coach, having fielded such questions about James continually in recent months, told reporters after the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy win over Reims the forward is happy at Real with Zidane happy with him too.
Zizou isn’t looking to offload him and it ‘tired’ of the same questions asked of him.
‘James is here, I am happy with how he played and he will be staying here. I will always respond in the same way to that, I’m tired of having to give a response. My stance is not going to change.’
