Decided for many months to leave Everton, James Rodriguez could find refuge in Qatar. The Colombian and his agent are already in contact with the Gulf club.
Relegated to the benchEverton by his trainer Rafa Benitez, James Rodriguez would think – again – of leaving England. The 30-year-old attacking midfielder hasn’t played a game with the Toffees this season. The Colombia international recently expressed his wish to join his former club, FC Porto. Only, since this Monday, Phil Kirkbride, journalist of the Liverpool Echo, revealed that a drop-off point had already been found: “ James Rodriguez is in Qatar for talks with a club as he seeks to leave Everton and Everton seeks to get rid of him. »
If everyone knew the situation of James in Everton, the information of making contact with the Al-Rayyan club, trained by Laurent Blanc, was relayed by several media including SkySports.

Under contract with Everton until next June, James Rodriguez could spin under the Qatari sun faster than expected. The summer transfer window ending on October 30 in the Gulf, the Colombian could thus leave England very soon. The cost of his transfer is estimated at 28 million euros according to the specialized site Transfermarkt. One thing is certain, the Colombian will regain playing time if an agreement is reached between the two parties.
