Real Madrid have essentially just confirmed James Rodriguez's future

It's safe to say now, with almost complete certainty, that James Rodriguez won't be a Real Madrid player next season.

Rodriguez, who has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu for months, was left out of Madrid's squad for the Champions League final on Saturday night against Juventus.

The Colombian, who cost the Spanish side €80m from Monaco in the summer of 2014, following his brilliant displays at the World Cup, wasn't even deemed worthy of a place on the bench.

There has been no word on whether the midfielder is injured. It appears Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane just doesn't fancy the player, who has been linked with a summer move to Inter Milan and Manchester United.

It now appears Rodriguez has played his last game for the Spanish club, and Zidane doesn't care about a player's status. Pepe was also omitted from Madrid's squad for the final.
