When asked if he would consider a return back to Real Madrid or his native country Colombia, the attacking midfield player, currently valued at £31.5m by Transfermarkt, said ‘I think not’.
Rodriguez reassures Everton fans
Even though he has only just moved to the Goodison Park faithful in last summer’s transfer window, it is nice of Rodriguez to reassure fans of the Merseyside club that he is not going anywhere.
Will Rodriguez be a success at Everton?
The 29-year-old has proved to be such a good signing for Carlo Ancelotti’s team, scoring five goals and making a further eight assists in 21 games in total over all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), including setting up Richarlison nicely for the opening goal against Liverpool at Anfield and help clench the Toffees’ first win there in over two decades.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, who also scored in that match with a late penalty to ensure that all three points were going to the Blues, has recently described him as a ‘fantastic’ player on the ball, and there us no doubt that he has brought some South American flair to the club.
Nonetheless, it looks as if Rodriguez is here to stay at EFC for the longer term.
