Everton star James Rodriguez claims 'nobody wants me at Real Madrid any more' after fan asks him to return
JAMES RODRIGUEZ rules out a return to Real Madrid after making claim about Zinedine Zidane and key figures at the club.
The attacking midfielder says he was not part of plans under his former manager and things have not changed since he departed last summer.
A fan asked if Rodriguez would return to Los Blancos when he hosted a live stream on Twitch.
The 29-year-old was adamant in his reply, and took the prospect of a return off the table, per Marca.
He said, "Nobody wants me there anymore. That's part of football, guys."
That is a positive development for Everton fans, as the Colombia international has five goals and eight assists in all competitions this season.
It may also mean that Rodriguez is thinking about activating an extension clause in his contract, which would keep him at the club until 2023.
He was reportedly considering an exit from Goodison Park at the end of the season as he is disgruntled with the weather and the physicality of the Premier League.

However, he shares a good relationship with Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian signed him for Madrid before linking up once again this season, and the partnership has flourished.
Also, the Toffees still have a chance of qualifying for the Champions Leagueand that might encourage Rodriguez to stay.
He has proved to be a bargain on a free so it is important the club does whatever it can to keep him happy.
