The January transfer window is open, and a player who has been on the radar of many top European clubs has finally spoken about his career.
James Rodriguez has been subject to intense transfer speculation linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu.
The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, to name but a few, have all reportedly expressed an interest.
And it appeared a move to the Premier League was on the cards after the Colombian was spotted at the British embassy.
But despite super-agent Jorge Mendes speaking about his future, it still remained in the air. Until last night as James has reiterated his desire to stay at Real Madrid.
"All of us who are in the team always want to play but I am fine." He told BeIN Sports.
While admitting it's been a difficult time but vows to stay on and force his way back into Zinedine Zidane's plans.
"We all go through difficult times and now it's a new year and I have new desires in life. I am staying."
James and Co. were in action last night as Real comfortably beat Sevilla in the 1st leg of the Copa del Rey including a brace from the attacking midfielder.
