Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has responded to rumours suggesting that Arsenal target James Rodriguez is saying goodbye to the club.  

The 25-year-old was linked with a move to the Emirates stadium during last summer but the transfer failed to materialize.

However, with the Gunners now seemingly in search of a new attacking midfielder, Rodriguez’s name has been brought up once again.

But according to Zidane, the Colombian is unlikely to be allowed to leave the club this summer.

“James’ ‘farewell’? No, James is at Madrid and we have a lot left to do.” Zidane responded when asked if Rodriguez is saying goodbye to Madrid

“We’re only thinking about the final stretch. I don’t want to talk about other things.”
