James is staying at Real Madrid – father

Playmaker James Rodriguez will stay at Real Madrid despite being linked with a move away from the club, according to his father.

James, struggling for game time at the Liga leaders, is reportedly wanted by Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United.

But his agent, Jorge Mendes, and now his dad Wilson have said James will remain at Santiago Bernabeu.

“He has a commitment to Real Madrid and he has a contract,” Wilson Rodriguez told Colombian media.

“He is going to stay.”

James has made just eight league appearances for Madrid this season, with four of those starts.

He arrived at the Spanish giants from Monaco in July 2014 in a reported €80 million move, and has since scored 27 goals in 94 appearances.
