MANCHESTER UNITED have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.
United have been long-term admirers of James – who spent two years on loan at Bayern Munich before returning to Madrid last summer.
But after playing 78 minutes of Real's 2-1 win against Real Sociedad at the weekend that saw them go top of LaLiga, the midfielder didn't seem ready to give up on his Bernabeu future.
He also rejected any claims there had been a fall-out with boss Zinedine Zidane and appeared to respect the boss' decisions.
Speaking to Colombian TV, the 28-year-old said: "There was never any problem [with Zidane]. Each coach has his tastes.
"We have a normal, working relationship.
"It does not seem fair to me that a person is disrespected for not picking a player."
