Chelsea target James Rodriguez will be staying at Real Madrid this month, according to his father.

The Colombian has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu, after a stop-start season which has seen him make only four starts for the European champions.

But his father Wilson has said that the 25-year-old will not be leaving the club anytime in the near future.

“He has a commitment to Real Madrid and he has a contract.  

“He is going to stay.”

Chelsea have been linked with a move the playmaker, but it appears he will now stay and fight for his place with the La Liga leaders.

This follows comments from Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes , who claims his client has nothing to prove and could be up for a new challenge.
