Real Madrid forward James Rodriguez has been linked to Chelsea for a couple of years, mainly because of the lack of playing time at the Merengues: the Colombian struggled under Zinedine Zidane‘s management but, with Gareth Bale‘s injury as a contributing factor, he has found more space on the pitch since the new year began.
Speaking after the Champions of Europe’s 3-1 win over Napoli last night, James ruled out a possible exit from Real Madrid:
“I think that everything is fine,” he claimed.
“Real Madrid is a great club and I always wanted to play here.
‘The good and bad times always come, but I want to stay here long term”.
