Copa del Rey contenders Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao have both indicated that they would be open to playing the final at Real Madrid's Bernabeu stadium.
Barcelona reached the final following a 6-2 aggregate victory over Villarreal on Wednesday evening, while Bilbao eased past Espanyol 3-1 on aggregate.
As Spain does not boast a national stadium as such, the debate has started up about where the May 30 final will be held, although initial indications suggest that it will be the Bernabeu.
James Rodriguez is not expected to be fit in time for the clasico against Barcelona on March 22.
James fractured a metatarsal on Feb. 4 during the Sevilla match and underwent an operation the following day.
The Colombia international was given an estimated recovery time of two months, with doctors predicting he would be able to return to action on April 14 or 15 -- the Champions League quarterfinals.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his camp have been keen to sell us the idea that while on the pitch he has superstar powers, away from the game he is just a normal guy who is not over-obsessed with his personal image.
That narrative does not quite fit with a revelation from the communication director of Madrid's wax museum, who has suggested that Ronaldo takes a very close personal interest in the appearance of his likeness, which has been on show at the Spanish capital tourist attraction since December 2013.
