The Colombia international was strongly linked with both Premier League clubs during the January transfer window, though a move never materialised as he remained at the Bernabeu.

Despite not playing a key role in Zinedine Zidane’s first-team for much of this season and last, Rordriguez insists he wants to stay at the club for a long time and is not looking to leave.

This looks like bad news for Chelsea, United and other top sides, with Rodriguez seemingly accepting his current role with Real.
