It may come as a bitter blow to James Rodriguez as Atletico Madrid president insists he “does not” see the player in the club’s plans.
James Rodriguez almost certainly does not have a future at Real Madrid beyond this summer.
The question is where will he end up?
While also admitting there were other offers he was rather intent on the fact that a move to the Wanda Metropolitano was the preferred transfer.
Now though despite all the talk and the flirting with a possible deal, it appears that Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has put an end to it all.
Speaking to Marca, he was asked about a possible deal. As quickly as he initially acknowledged talks had taken place he was just as eager to right the idea off too.
“I have no idea if he will finally come. I do not think that he enters the plans of Atlético de Madrid”
So just where could James Rodriguez end up?
