Fabrizio Romano shared an update on Everton’s James Rodriguez in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
And the transfer expert’s Twitter post had plenty of Toffees fans talking on social media.
Reports on Monday suggested that the 30-year-old flew out to Qatar to hold talks with an unnamed club, which now appears to be Al Rayyan.
Romano claimed that discussions are ongoing between Al Rayyan and Rodriguez’s representatives, with a loan deal possibly on the cards.
Everton are still waiting to hear the Colombian’s final decision, with the Toffees prepared to accept any destination for the attacking midfielder.
Was Rodriguez a waste of money?
Everton fans react
Romano’s update on Rodriguez received plenty of interaction on Twitter, with a number of Everton supporters weighing in with their views. This is what they had to say, with one labelling it as ‘pathetic’.
“If he would rather go on loan to Qatar than play in the Premiership with the fans back then we better not pay a single penny towards his wages. The fact we are entertaining another loan is a shambles.”
“Just awful business for both club and player.”
“What a waste of ability”
“why James, why”
“@ryanwilsonefc we was right lad”
