James waiting to define his future
Everton star James Rodriguez is ‘still waiting to define’ his future at the club as he looks increasingly likely to leave this summer, according to a report.
The midfielder returned to Finch Farm yesterday as the Blues started their pre-season under new manager Rafa Benitez.
EuroJournal say reports in Italy have indicated that AC Milan could be keen on a deal, while in Colombia, it’s been widely accepted that the player’s relationship with Benitez is likely to see him seek an exit.
Their article states:
His agent Jorge Mendes is believed to be working on securing one, and Antena 2 report today that Rodriguez is waiting to see what his efforts achieve.
They state that the midfielder is ‘still waiting’ to define his future as ‘everything indicates’ he will not be remaining at Everton.
According to them, he will ‘work over the next few days’ as is expected but in reality is simply waiting to see what happens with Mendes, who, according to reports, travelling to Italy to finalise a move to Milan.
Antena 2 back up the claims of a poor relationship with Benitez, saying that there is ‘no empathy’ between the pair, and that has triggered his departure.
This is all backed up by Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra, who adds that Mendes is expected in Milan this week to negotiate a potential move for Rodriguez.
