ZZ to decide on James – Perez

The future of James Rodriguez will be decided by Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane promptly, according to club president Florentino Perez.

The former Porto and Monaco playmaker has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this summer and did not make the matchday squad for their Champions League final win over Juventus.

"We're going to speak with Zidane, who's the conductor of this orchestra. If it were up to me, everyone would stay," Perez told Antena 3.

"James is an incredible player, but when you have so many… I'd have everyone stay. We'll speak with the coach; he is the person who will decide the future.

"He (Zidane) can spend his life at Madrid; he's a person that all us Madridistas have to thank. He elevated our level of talent in 2001 and put on a show.

"He's done this in 17 months, and in 17 months you can't do everything. He said that he hadn't won anything, but now he has won everything."

Manchester United and Inter are supposedly the two club's with an interest in the Colombian playmaker, who joined Madrid in 2014.
