Real Madrid top player wants to leave the club


James Rodríguez has travelled to Colombia with the idea of not coming back to Madrid. According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, the playmaker has taken a decision of leaving the club after not playing any minute in the Champions League final.

James Rodríguez is used to be the star in the different teams he’s played for. Porto, Monaco and Colombian national teams are the examples of his status as key player. However, since Zidane’s arrival, James has been on the bench, something he doesn’t want for himself in the next season.

The Colombian footballer played 32 games this season, 14 less than the previous one, when he was very important for Carlo Ancelotti.

“I’m not here to be on the bench”, he said to his colleagues after the Champions League final, according to Marca. A sentence that sum up his feelings.

Real Madrid paid 75 M€ to Monaco two seasons ago, after the World Cup, so the club would like to recover the investment. Manchester United or PSG could be able to pay this huge amount of money.
