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?

Earlier the player’s stepfather revealed that Real blocked a move to cross-town rivals Atletico last summer.

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.

Cerezo said:

“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?
