Isco & James celebrate

Real Madrid forward claims his future is at the club despite lack of playing time

Not much playing time

James Rodridgez may have spent the majority of life under Zidane on the bench, but that doesn’t mean he wants to leave Real Madrid.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite, with James prepared to wait on the sidelines, take his chances when they come and also try and impress his manager in training if it means he gets to break into the side.

With the return of Gareth Bale, said chances may well be few and far between – but for now, that’s not going to force James to hand in a transfer request.

A blow to the Premier League

One thing that the news could mean is a blow to certain Premier League sides, with Manchester United and Chelsea both linked with James.

Of course staying and fighting for his future is one thing, but should he fail to impress Zidane, it may well force him out the club yet – and that could well mean that a move to England could be on the cards – if not now, then in the future.
