Zinedine Zidane already has a replacement for James Rodríguez if, in the end, the Colombian leaves. The chosen one is Dimitri Payet, West Ham's French playmaker, who has been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season. The former Olympique de Marseille player touched down in London last summer, but Zidane had already had his eye on him, according to 'The Sun'.

Any talks for Payet will not be easy if, in the end, Real Madrid decide to make a move for him. The Frenchman signed a contract extension in February that will bind him to the East London club until 2021, and he himself wants to stay with the Hammers, where he is an idol. "I've said it several times, I feel good here, everyone's done all that they can to make me feel good. I want to help West Ham grow and, once again, this new contract shows my desire and motivation to fulfil those objectives", he said when he had signed the new deal. Payet's price tag is reckoned to be in the region of €34 million, which would be well within Madrid's reach with what they bank for James.

Payet, along with Mahrez, Vardy, Kane, Ozil and Kante, was one of the players nominated for the Premier League player of the year award, which eventually went to the title-winners Leicester City's Algerian midfielder.
