The Frenchman allegedly told Rodriguez to find a new club after he has fallen behind the likes of Lucas Vazquez, Isco and Marco Asensio in the pecking order.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus were the latest clubs linked with the Colombian, but Zidane seems to be getting tired of the speculation.

“James is here, I am happy with how he played and he will be staying here,” he said, as quoted by AS.

“I will always respond in the same way to that, I'm tired of having to give a response. My stance is not going to change.”

Zidane also gave an update on his transfer plans, but didn't give his side's fans hope of much further movement in the market befoe the window closes in less than two weeks.

“We are going to wait till the 31st but I don't think anyone else will come in,” he added.

“The squad is complete, but anything can happen. I am happy with the squad and with the players we have.

“Regardless of what happens, I hope to be here in a year's time and I'll say the same thing. I'm happy with the players I've got, these same players won the Champions League.

“I'm not sure if I've convinced you but that is that.”
