Everton fans, how many Champions League titles has Rafa Benitez won?

With Carlo Ancelotti departing Merseyside to make a return to Real Madrid, Rodriguez has made it clear that he does not want to stay with the Toffees, who have no European football this season.

The Latest: Close to Milan

As per this report, the 30-year-old is closing in on a move to Champions League side AC Milan, who are back in Europe’s primary club competition after a seven-year absence.

ESPN’s Vito de Palma has even claimed [via Marca] that terms have been agreed, calling the deal a “bombshell”.

The Verdict: Unprofessional

Rodriguez showed his ability in flashes at Everton. In 23 Premier League matches, he scored six goals and provided five assists (Transfermarkt), and was even called a “joy to watch” by talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham. However, he has let himself with his conduct in recent times – he has not hidden his desire to seek pastures new and even said he had no idea who Everton were playing prior to their recent clash against Leeds (talkSPORT).

Was Rodriguez a waste of money?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It seems clear that Ancelotti’s presence at Goodison Park convinced £25.2m-valued Rodriguez (Transfermarkt) to make the switch, but his reaction to the Italian’s departure has been unprofessional. While he may be a very special player, few Evertonians will mourn his departure if he completes his move to Milan considering his off-field conduct.

In other news, many Everton fans are delighted with this transfer update.
