Zidane: Rodriguez could become a problem for Real
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has opened the door to out-of-favour midfielder James Rodriguez leaving the club by admitting the player's lack of appearances could become a problem. The Colombia international joined Real in 2014 for a reported €80m ($90m) after earning the Golden Boot at the World Cup with six goals in five games.   [caption id="attachment_12551" align="aligncenter" width="700"]Rodriguez with Real manager Zidane at a pre-season training session COLLECTED Rodriguez with Real manager Zidane at a pre-season training session COLLECTED[/caption] After a successful first season in Spain, he has failed to hold down a regular place since Zidane took charge in January. Rodriguez was excluded from the starting line-up in the European Super Cup win over Sevilla and last week's 3-0 La Liga victory at Real Sociedad. Spanish sports newspaper AS reported on Friday that Rodriguez will seek a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu if he does not start against Celta Vigo on Saturday. "James is a Real Madrid player and he has a contract with us but it's true that he has played less than others and that could prove a problem," Zidane told a news conference on Friday.

"Anything could happen between now and August 31 (when the transfer window closes)," Zidane added. "I'm sure no-one else is going to arrive but players could leave. I have a squad now and I'm happy with it and some players are going to return (from injury)." Real produced a dominant performance last week at Sociedad without goalkeeper Keylor Navas, midfielder Luka Modric and forwards Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.
