James Rodríguez Blasts Decision-Making at Real Madrid as Midfielder Is Shown Exit Door

James Rodríguez, who is currently playing with Colombia at the Copa America, has blasted Real Madrid’s decision-making amid speculation of a permanent departure from Los Blancos.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a permanent exit from the Santiago Bernabéu, despite Bayern Munich failing to trigger his buy-out clause last season after his two-year loan spell with the Bavarian giants came to an end.

With Los Blancos going on a spending spree this summer, Rodríguez finds himself once again out of favour at the club and as reported by Marca, he left no holds barred after Colombia’s 1-0 victory over Paraguay in the Copa America.

“Right now I am thinking about the Copa America and I don’t know where I’ll be going,” he said.

“The decision depends on the club. I think there are some people inside the club who decide a lot and I can’t do anything.”

He has also confirmed that he is yet to speak with manager Zinedine Zidane, whom he had a tough relationship with when he last played at the ​La Liga outfit, being left out of the squad in the 2016/17 Champions League final.

The Colombian midfielder is finding his options to be quite sparse, with ​Napoli the only club heavily linked to secure his services. Carlo Ancelotti is said to be a huge fan of the playmaker having previously worked with him during his time in charge of both ​Real and ​Bayern. 

It has been previously reported that Los Merengues are not willing to let James leave ​on loan as they need to recoup some funds for another blockbuster signing, such as Paul Pogba or Kylian Mbappé.
