Football SPORTS GIST TRANSFER EVERTON’S JAMES RODRIGUEZ IN TALKS WITH QATAR CLUB OVER A MOVE By Admin Posted on September 20, 2021 1 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. James Rodriguez of Everton is in negotiations with a club in Qatar regarding a possible transfer. Since Rafa Benitez took over as manager, the former Real Madrid midfielder has failed to play a game. During the transfer window, the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner had the option of moving to Portugal, but an agreement with Porto could not be reached. The club’s official line was that Rodriguez was in Benitez’s plans ’till August 31,’ but with the transfer window open until September 30, Qatar could prove to be an escape route. James has used the live-streaming service Twitch to update his fans on his plans, which has enraged many of the supporters. In September 2020, the 30-year-old joined Goodison Park on a free transfer, rejoining for the third time with then-manager Carlo Ancelotti. He got a two-year contract with the option of a third, becoming him Everton’s highest-paid player.
