After being linked with some of the big European clubs James has already expressed that he will stay at Madrid only and the forward is ready to fight for his place in Real Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane has expressed that Real Madrid have too many playmakers and it is difficult to fit everyone in the playing XI, but the Real Madrid manager wants James Rodriguez to stay in Madrid.
In an interview Zidane said, “There are many players in that position, so nothing is closed,"
"We will talk about this when we return to Madrid. There are many players in this position and it is difficult to fit them all in. Moreover, they are all very good. We will make decisions.
"I do not want James to leave. He is a Madrid player, he just wants to play more, but you have to do what he is doing and work. I hope to play him more this year but I want everyone to give their maximum, and then I decide before every game.
"And I have 25 players, so I do not have anything against James, people always ask me the same. James is well in Madrid."
After all this, now it is much sure that the Colombian star forward will definitely provide his services to the Spanish giant Real Madrid for the upcoming season 2016/17.
