Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane closed the exit door on Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez despite leaving the 2014 World Cup's top scorer on the bench once more for Real's 2-1 win over Celta Vigo Saturday.However, Zidane insisted Rodriguez will remain in the Spanish capital beyond the transfer deadline Wednesday with even the Premier League's cash-rich clubs unlikely to match the reported 80 million euros ($90 million, £68 million) Real paid for him after the World Cup two years ago.Rodriguez only came on for the final 21 minutes as Kroos's fine long-range effort 10 minutes from time salvaged all three points for the hosts despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema from Zidane's starting line-up through injury.
