Following the conclusion of his two-year loan deal, Rodriguez has returned to Real but is not part of Zinedine Zidane's plans for the upcoming season.

Serie A outfit Napoli have been heavily linked with the 28-year-old, but Atletico Madrid CEO Gil Marin says coach Diego Simeone is a fan of the midfielder.

I know that many clubs would like him," Marin told ESPN.

“Even talking to a player, he believes that there are qualities that the player could bring and that it is good for us.

“I know that our coach [Diego Simeone] likes him, I know that James does not want to continue in Real Madrid and I know that Real Madrid doesn't want him to continue, but there have to be many circumstances to make it possible.

“It would be very nice, but It depends a lot on the president of Real Madrid."
