James Rodríguez could be on his way out of Real Madrid if Los Blancos receive a good offer for the Colombian midfielder, according to El Chiringuito.

However, if no club is willing to offer around €70 million for James, Real Madrid will keep him and the player will have to earn Zinedine Zidane's trust.

The French coach has considered James a reserve ever since he became Real's manager, with the Colombian playing very few minutes and often looking a bit too careless. However, it's clear that James also needs to be shown some confidence if Madrid want to have him at his best, so Zidane will have a tough time finding the minutes James needs to perform.

As things stand right now, Madrid have not received a good offer for James, who is behind Lucas Vázquez, Isco and possibly even Marco Asensio in the depth chart. As Zidane said during the preseason stage in North America, "it's time to make some decisions."
