Loads of Everton fans have been left to slam James Rodriguez as Defensa Central have claimed that he is unhappy and wants to sign for Atletico Madrid.
As per the outlet, the former Real Madrid ace is reportedly unhappy with the English weather, customs and the physical nature of the football that is causing him to pick up a lot of injuries.
Will Rodriguez be a success at Everton?
Thus, the attacking midfield player is apparently willing to return to the Spanish capital to live there and sign for Diego Simeone’s team instead.
It is a big claim to make on a man who has only just joined the Goodison Park faithful following his move in the summer transfer window, but if this report was found to be true, then it may be wise for the Merseyside club to cash in on an unhappy player who will be 30 in July.
Everton fan reaction to Rodriguez claim
These Toffees supporters slammed Rodriguez on Twitter after hearing about the claim, with one Blue even going as far as to call the Colombia international a ‘bottle job’:
“If this is true. then BYE!.. If he cant take the heat then see ya”
“See ya later then”
“He’s a bottle job”
“It was only -15 in Madrid in January”
