Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has left the Colombian on the bench for most of the campaign, and his exit this summer looks inevitable.

Rodruguez has only started 13 La Liga games this season, and his goal in the win against Granada looks like his final act as a Los Blancos player.

Pepe, 34 is out of contract this summer, after failing to agree a new deal with the champions after 10 years at the Bernebau.

The pair are expected to be in the squad to face Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff next month.
