Many Everton fans have been left fuming as a transfer update emerged on James Rodriguez.
As per Pipe Sierra, Istanbul Basaksehir have now made a loan offer to the Goodison Park club to try and sign the former Real Madrid star.
Should Everton keep Rodriguez?
Talks are currently ongoing between the two clubs, with the Turkish window transfer still open.
Rodriguez was a key player for the Blues last season, scoring six goals and supplying a further nine assists in 26 games across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
With the inability to find a replacement given that the English transfer window is now shut, it would certainly seem like a strange deal for Everton to sanction, so it is no surprise at all that so many Toffees supporters are raging at the news.
Everton fans on Rodriguez transfer news
These Everton fans were left fuming as the transfer news on Rodriguez was shared by The Toffee Blues on their Twitter page:
“Makes absolutely no sense this, we can’t exactly replace him and we are looking at loaning out a class player who can impact a game for the sake of his wages”
“We absolutely should not be letting him go out on loan full stop. Furthermore, we shouldn’t be letting him go out on loan where we still end up paying most of his wages (which is inevitably what is going to happen). I just want to see the lad play for us”
“We cannot get rid of him now. Let him see his deal and leave next summer. We are so short.”
“Why? Why are we doing this?”
“I worry we’re not savvy enough to fully factor in and optimize the global brand development opportunities with his ridiculous profile. Have to keep him now, surely?!”
“You’d be insane to loan him when you’ve got literally no depth“
