James has been heavily linked with a switch to Premier League side Manchester United and talk of a move away from the Spanish capital intensified following the 4-1 rout of Sevilla.

The Colombia international came off just past the hour-mark and applauded the Madrid fans, but Nacho does not think it was a farewell.

"The ovation for James was very nice," Nacho said, having scored and assisted another as Madrid stayed level on points with leaders Barcelona.

"The whole stadium has applauded him, he's a great player and I don't think it's a goodbye."

James, 25, is desperate for regular football, having struggled to cement a spot in Zinedine Zidane's starting XI.

Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas — who faces an uncertain future himself — added: "James has his contract and, as always, he is working in a professional manner.

"We love him as a person and admire him as a player. He is motivated and always ready to play."
