Some Everton fans have been left to fume as a transfer update emerged on James Rodriguez.
Speaking to Sports Blog (via Marca), football journalist Javier Hernandez Bonnet has claimed that the Colombia international has the option of returning back to Real Madrid and reuniting with Carlo Ancelotti on a free transfer.
Should Everton keep Rodriguez?
Rodriguez was such a key player for the Goodison Park faithful in the 2020/21 season, scoring six goals and making a further nine assists in 26 games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt), and so it would be such a shame to see him leave after just one campaign, especially given that he largely played without supporters in the stadiums.
Nonetheless, to lose the 29-year-old for free would be a devastating blow, as he would not be easy to replace without spending a bit of cash.

These Toffees fumed as the transfer update was shared on Twitter, with one Blue even going as far as to claim that it was a ‘joke’:
“Smashing my head against the wall”
“What did I do in my past life to be forced to support Everton”
“Honestly believe we are the worst run club in world football”
