The decision of Real Madrid’s boss Zinedine Zidane has taken a risk to upset Cristiano Ronaldo by telling him that this summer James Rodriguez will leave the club.
Rodriguez has suffered from a difficult season at the club, he made just 32 appearances in all the competitions and scored 11 goals from Real Madrid’s side.
Due to his shorter game time, the Colombia international seems to depart from the Bernabeu, and he will join Manchester United among his fans.
He also waved goodbye to his Real Madrid fans last month while they had a 4-1 home win over Sevilla. Whereas, he also seems to be ignored for a starting place in the Champions League final match against Juventus today.
Whereas, Diario Gol claimed that this could disturb Ronaldo and apparently he has been begging Zidane to keep the Rodriguez in the club.
The reports show that Rodriguez is confident to make his way to Manchester United as Jose Mourinho is looking for more talent to strengthen his team’s attacking position.
Real is trying to insist Real Madrid to keep the player in the club, He believes that many of partners in the dressing room are leaving.
Fabio Coentrao and Pepe, both the players who play with Ronaldo for Portugal, are also looking to leave the club as Zidane is interested in having some new blood in the club for the next season.
Rodriguez is supposedly one of the few players whom Ronaldo wants to stay at the club, but it feels like no one is listening to his protests.
