James Rodriguez Completes Transfer Move to Al Rayyan
Colombia's playmaker, James Rodriguez, has officially left Everton Football Club to join Al Rayyan Football Club in Qatar. The player fell out of favor with the Merseyside new manager, Rafa Benitez.

The Qatar club posted a teaser video for its fans, who await the official announcement of Rodriguez to the club.
Rodriguez joined Everton from Real Madrid, a transfer that was influenced by Carlo Ancelotti, who was the manager of the Premier League club last season (2020/21 ).
The Colombian could not find a space in the team under Benitez following the return of Ancelotti to Real Madrid. He scored six goals in twenty-three appearances for Everton.
