Agent Jorge Mendes offering Everton’s James Rodriguez ‘to the left and the right’

 

Super agent Jorge Mendes is doing everything within his power to secure an Everton exit for James Rodriguez, according to Italian reports.

James back in form

Colombian international Rodriguez of course only made the move to Goodison Park last summer.

On the back of another testing season on the books of Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid, during which he struggled for game-time, the 29-year-old opted to try his hand in the Premier League for the first time.

And the ensuing campaign, in turn, proved largely positive.

Whilst he was forced to deal with a number of niggling fitness issues, Rodriguez, when fit, slotted into Everton’s midfield with ease, adding some much-needed guile to the club’s ranks.

All told, in 26 appearances across all competitions, the talented South American racked up 6 goals and 9 assists.

‘Offering him’

Rodriguez’s Everton switch developing in the first place, though, only came about due to the persistence of Carlo Ancelotti, who had previously overseen some of the finest form of the Colombian’s career whilst in Madrid.

In turn, upon the tactician bringing an abrupt end to his Goodison stint at the beginning of last month, it came as little surprise when speculation surrounding Rodriguez’s future quickly followed.

And, as outlined above, if the latest word doing the rounds in the European media on Monday is anything to go by, then it appears that a Blues exit is precisely what the midfielder himself has set his sights on.

Speaking to Radio Marte (as cited by Casa Napoli), Italian journalist Paolo Paganini today provided an insight into Rodriguez’s current situation.

And Paganini went on to suggest that, despite what appears to be a general lack of interest, Jorge Mendes, the South American’s agent, is doing his utmost to find Rodriguez a new club:

‘Mendes is offering him to the left and to the right.’

The Italian continued:

‘Milan would like to bet on a younger player with a lighter salary. They are thinking above all of Zaccagni of Verona. Napoli were in pole position but in Spalletti’s mind, there are other priorities.’
