James Rodriguez appeared to wave goodbye to the Bernabeu

With reports linking James Rodriguez to a summer transfer, the Colombian appeared to wave goodbye to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as he was substituted against Sevilla.

Manchester United have been named as the playmaker’s biggest suitors and the 25-year-old did little to dispel such rumours with his emotional reaction to being withdrawn in Real Madrid’s final home match of the campaign.

Zinedine Zidane gave him the opportunity to start the match and he had a hand in the second goal with his shot parried by Sergio Rico straight to Cristiano Ronaldo – although he contributed little else.

As his number was shown on the electronic board Rodriguez waved to all four sides of the stadium, suggesting a potential farewell.
