Zinedine Zidane has played down suggestions James Rodriguez‘s absence from Real Madrid training was linked to transfer talk surrounding a move to Manchester United.
Rodriguez was absent from Tuesday’s training session ahead of the vital La Liga clash with Celta Vigo, but Real coach Zidane insists that was down to a slight injury.
“It is not up for debate,” Zidane said. “He (Rodriguez) is with us, although today he has not trained because he received a heavy blow (to his foot).
“We are only thinking about the three final (matches) that we have got coming up.”
