Many Everton fans have been left fuming as another transfer update emerged on James Rodriguez.
As per a report from earlier on in the week by Tuttosport (via Milan News), which has since been shared by Toffee TV on their Twitter page, the Colombia international is actually willing to take a pay cut in order to sign for AC Milan before the summer window ends.
Should Everton have kept Rodriguez?
This is not the first time that Rodriguez has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, and it seems as if this saga will continue to drag on into the new season.
The former Real Madrid star scored six goals and supplied a further nine assists in 26 games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt), showing his importance to the team, and so it is understandable why so many supporters of the Merseyside club do not want to see him leave.

These Toffees fumed as the transfer update was shared on Twitter:
“Never wearing it again, absolutely devastated. Its like the entire last season was a fever dream.”
“I am genuinely worried about next season. James looking for a way out, none of the areas needed to be strengthened sorted and teams like Palace and Villa doing great business”
“Happy to take a pay cut to leave us – how bad is Everton these days”
“Seems like time to unfollow Everton back.”
“@Everton get it though your thick skulls, Every Everton fan wants him to stay, what’s wrong with you! @jamesdrodriguez been an fan for 36yrs, today is my 43rd birthday and we all want you to stay! @rafabenitezweb this better be sorted or it’s game over before you start.”
“That’s good of him, he might only get £80,000”
