James Rodríguez and a devastating fact: six months without playing with Al Rayyan James Rodríguez: in Qatar they got tired, strong campaign against him

In Qatar they were very upset with the Colombian player, who even stated that he would walk to Spain to sign for Valencia and they blamed him for the large number of games he missed.

The options to change teams for James

The transfer books of the main leagues in Europe were closed the last week and James had two options left if he wanted to leave Al-Rayyan: one, to fix his release to sign as a free player, and the other, to look for a market in one of the tournaments in which it is still possible to contract, like Belgium, Russia or Turkey.

Now, press versions affirm that one of those doors was opened to James. The journalist Ertan Suzgun assures that the Colombian has an agreement with Galatasaray, from Turkey.

“Galatasaray reached an agreement with James Rodríguez on all issues. Negotiations with Al Rayyan continue. If an agreement is reached with the Qatari representative, the Colombian player will wear the Galatasaray shirt on loan,” Suzgun wrote.

If this negotiation materializes, James would join the list of Colombians who passed through one of the most popular and traditional clubs in Turkey, in which includes, among others, Radamel Falcao García, Faryd Mondragón, Jersson González and Gustavo Victoria.
