Speaking after victory against Stade de Reims for the Bernabeu Trophy last night, Zidane also discussed Mariano Diaz's future.
On James, Zizou said: “James is here, I am happy with how he played and he will be staying here. I will always respond in the same way to that, I'm tired of having to give a response. My stance is not going to change."
And for Mariano, he added: "We'll have to see.
"For the time being he's here with us. He's a Madrid player, he hasn't be unveiled as a signing because he's come up from Castilla. We'll see what happens between now and 31 August, but right now he's here with us and he's happy."
