According to ABC Deportes, Vazquez has rejected Real Madrid's final contract offer. He will leave the club at the end of the season, despite Zinedine Zidane reportedly trying to convince the player to stay.

It remains to be seen where Vazquez eventually lands up at. Manchester United and Leeds are interested in his services, while Bayern Munich have reportedly agreed to a deal to bring the player to Germany in the summer.
