Zidane doubts about further James games
Against Athletic Bilbao in early July, he even refused a place in the squad. "James didn't want to be in the squad at his own request," said coach Zinedine Zidane after the 1-0 win. That is "his personal matter, there is nothing more to say at this point".
Zidane therefore said with regard to the contract expiring in 2021: "I do not know if he will play for Real Madrid again."
To get rid of James, a buyer for the 29-year-old would first have to be found. In times of savings by Corona, there should be little interest among the top clubs to pay a salary in addition to a reasonable fee, which comes close to the reported eight million euros net from James' current contract.

Parallels to Gareth Bale
Although the 25 million would only be a third of the transfer that Real paid to AS Monaco after the 2014 World Cup, the Madrilenians would probably take the money with a kiss.
