James Rodríguez counts the hours until the transfer market in Europe closes, which will be this Tuesday, August 31, to know his future, which for now is linked to Everton in England.
In recent months it became known that Rafa Benítez, his coach, told James that he had the doors open to change clubs. From that moment he was associated with teams such as Atlético de Madrid, AC Milan, Newcastle or Porto, among others, but there were never any real or close options to transfer the Colombian.
Well, this Monday, when there is less and less time to close the hiring in the Old Continent, Edu Aguirre, a journalist from ‘The beach bar’ and friend of James Rodríguez, revealed which is the closest option that the coffee grower has at the moment.
According to Aguirre, neither Everton nor businessman Jorge Mendes have received offers for James. No club seems to be looking at the Colombian at the moment, who also has a high salary and that could be a problem to hire him.
Thus, unless a very favorable proposal arrives for the player and for the English club, James will stay in Everton to fulfill the year of his contract that still remains to be fulfilled.
Thus, James will have to earn the trust of Rafa Benítez and fight for a position in the title ‘toffee’, despite the fact that in recent weeks he has not been able to play.
