For several years in a row, James Rodriguez tried to revive his career, but constantly something went wrong. The Colombian suffered in Real Madrid, was unable to gain a foothold in Bayern, and even left the club, which is significantly lower in rank – Everton. A few days ago, the star midfielder moved to Qatar’s Al-Rayyan. “Toffee” received 8 million euros for the midfielder. This transfer was quite unexpected. Few thought that the top scorer of the 2014 World Cup would be in the margins of world football at the age of 30. But, probably, everything went to this.
Can James still become a top player in a new team or is this the end of his career? Will he score a lot in the new championship? Follow this link https://22bet.co.ke/live/ and make a bet on how his career will develop this year.
Since the appearance of James in Europe, his career has developed rapidly. In July 2010, Rodriguez moved from Banfield Argentina to Porto. The transfer amount was 7.5 million euros. The first season with the Dragons was not very productive for the midfielder. But in the next two campaigns, he scored 22 and 20 points on the goal + pass system. In July 2013, Porto sold the AS Monaco player for 45 million euros. There, the Colombian spent another impressive season (9 goals and 14 assists) and a year later moved to Real Madrid. Monegasques received 75 million euros for the player, “welded” on his resale 30 million.
The first season as part of the “Royal Club” was the best in the career of James in terms of performance. Rodriguez has scored 13 goals and 13 assists in La Liga alone. In the next campaign, the midfielder’s indicators dropped (7 goals and 8 assists), as did his playing time. Be that as it may, Carlo Ancelotti did not stop believing in the player whom the Blancos signed at his request. But in May 2015, the Italian left the “cream”, and in January 2016 the team was headed by Zinedine Zidane. At first, the footballer received decent minutes from a specialist, but, frankly, the Colombian was never held in high esteem by the Frenchman. It got to the point that James had to leave Real Madrid.
Rodriguez left the Royal Club for the first time in the 2017/18 season and moved to Bayern on a two-year loan. The midfielder showed himself well at the Allianz Arena, having chalked up 7 goals and 11 assists in the Bundesliga. The footballer spent his second season as part of the “recordmaster” not so brightly (7 goals and 4 assists). James returned to Madrid, where nothing good awaited him. In the 2019/20 season, Rodriguez took part in only eight games in the Spanish championship. The midfielder missed 10 of Real Madrid’s matches in La Liga due to injury, and 16 more while healthy. After that, it became clear that the Colombian’s career in the “royal club” is over.
