James Rodriguez transfer odds are headlining all media outlets after the Colombian completely lost the trust of Zidane. He is certainly leaving the La Liga Champions, but there are doubts about his next destination. Indications reveal that his options are limited to staying in Spain or going to England. Here is a shortlist of teams that are interested in signing him.
From A World Cup Star to A Benchwarmer
The rise of James Rodriguez in the 2014 World Cup was extraordinary. The Colombian forward won the golden boot after finishing as the top scorer with six goals in five matches. His goals helped Colombia reach the quarter-finals before losing to tournament hosts Brazil. With such a spectacular performance, James Rodriguez transfer odds headlined all media outlets. The biggest teams in Europe were fighting over the young Colombian. In the end, Real Madrid won his services after paying a record-breaking transfer fee which reached 75 million Euros. After an incredible season with Los Blancos and winning the Champions League, his market value peaked to reach 80 million Euros. Since then, the Colombian forward has been in a constant decline. Several managers at Real Madrid failed to find a spot for him at the starting eleven.
As a result, he was loaned to Bayern Munich where he failed to impress yet again. After 67 appearances with the Bavarians, James managed to score only 15 goals and 20 assists. Since Zidane cannot find a place for him in the starting eleven, James Rodriguez transfer odds indicate he will certainly leave Real Madrid. With a market value that is now equal to 30 million Euros, where will James fit in next season?
James Rodriguez Transfer Odds – Where Will He End Up?
At 29 years of age, the Colombian international should currently be at the peak of his career. He has won several titles including two La Liga and two Champions League trophies. Therefore, he will be looking for a new challenge to expand on his achievements and get more playing time. Although several teams are in the mix of James Rodriguez transfer odds, Atletico Madrid is leading the race. According to Colombian journalist Javier, the Rojiblancos are in the prime position to win the services of James. Negotiations between all involved parties are going well, and Rodriguez can be considered 80% a player for them. Online sportsbook sites in Spain also favor Atletico Madrid in their James Rodriguez transfer odds. For instance, at 1xBET Sportsbook, the odds for them to successfully sign him are 1.64.
Another team that has been interested in signing Rodriguez for the past three years is Manchester United. Reports say that the Red Devils are considering renewing their interest in the Colombian forward. However, they are only willing to pay the minimum transfer fees. This could hurt their chances as Atleti might pay more. At 1xBET Sportsbook, odds for James to wear the Man Utd jersey next season are 7.00. Another English team that is offering James an escape route from Madrid’s bench is Everton. Reports say that the team has already put an offer on the table for James to accept, but no further details were disclosed. James Rodriguez transfer odds for Everton are 9.00. Several other teams are also monitoring the situation and could jump in to sign the midfielder. Here are some of those teams and their betting odds:
