Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidanee has revealed that he can give no assurances that James Rodriguez will be guaranteed first team football next season.

Zidane played down questions regarding the future of the Colombian international midfielder at the club next season.

“A large squad gives you a few more problems but that comes with the territory as Real Madrid coach,” Rodriguez Talksport.

“I have to play the most competitive side I can and I’ll do the same thing this season, that’s my responsibility.”

The Independent report that West Ham are interested in the the 25-year-old midfielder who may be available for the right price after joining on an €80 million move in 2014.

Rodriguez was left on the bench for the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid and struggled for playing time.

The Hammers could however, face competition from Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

West Ham recently offered former player Carlos Tevez a £150,000-a-week contract which suggests that they would be able to match Rodriguez’s wages if he were to make the move.

The East London based outfit have had a busy summer and recently signed Turkish international winger Gokhan Tore on a one-year loan.
