Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane admits that he does not know whether James Rodriguez will play for the club again.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has conceded that James Rodriguez may have played his final game for Los Blancos following a turbulent campaign.

The Colombia international has stepped out onto the pitch just eight times during the 2019-20 La Liga season and has not been in Zidane's squad for their last two matches.

Speculation has been rife surrounding Rodriguez's future following his struggles at the Bernabeu recently, and when asked in a news conference if the midfielder would pull on a Real Madrid shirt again, Zidane simply said: "I don't know."

Rodriguez has only played 78 minutes of football since the Spanish top flight returned to action, starting in Madrid's victory over Real Sociedad before being replaced by Marco Asensio.

With Rodriguez's current deal in the Spanish capital set to expire next summer, Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal and Everton are all said to be closely monitoring the situation.

The 29-year-old has scored 37 goals in 125 appearances for Los Blancos since arriving from Monaco in 2014.
