Colombian superstar James Rodriguez raised many eyebrows after making a move to Qatari club Al-Rayyan, thus bringing an end to his chapter at Everton.

The transfer fee is still undisclosed, however there is a specific exit clause in James' contract that could mean he may not be at Al-Rayyan for long.

AS  say that PSG are interested in the former Real Madrid superstar and if a condition arises that the French club decide to sign him, Al Rayyan must let him leave for free.

The Parisians have a wealth of talent already at their disposal, but they are still reported to be set to keep an eye on Rodriguez's performances in Qatar.

As a club, PSG also have strong Qatari connections as their owner is the Emir of the country, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

Rodriguez joined Everton just last summer as he linked up with his former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti.

James managed to net six goals in 26 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions and did not make a single appearance in the 2021-22 season.

"I want to thank my teammates, who welcomed me well, I wish them the best and I also want to thank Everton fans," Rodriguez wrote on Instagram in his farewell message.

"A pity not to have played in Goodison Park with you, it would have been very nice. I always tried to give my best and I always wanted to win, that is my mentality. I wish you all the best. JR10."

James was officially unveiled as an Al-Rayyan player in front of fans on Thursday night and will wear the No.10 shirt.
