"As Transfermarkt knew him, James Rodríguez was transferred to Al Rayyan in exchange for 8 million euros, a figure paid by the Asian cast for their sports rights," said the website.

This ended up being a profitable business for Everton since a year ago he managed to sign the Colombian at zero cost from Real Madrid.

The same portal ensures that the transfer of James is the fifth most expensive in Qatari football.

He is surpassed by Shoya Nakajima (35 million) and Toby Alderweireld (13 million) to Al-Duhail, Christian Benítez (11.7 million) to El-Jaish and Nilmar (10 million) to Al Rayyan himself.

The Colombian midfielder is the most valuable player in the Qatar Star League.

The '10' has a market value of 28 million euros.

Next on the list are 

Alderweireld (10 million) and Aaron Boupendza (8.5 million).

James is also worth more than 10 of the 12 teams in Qatar's first division and is even more valuable than the last five teams combined.

It is worth clarifying that with his arrival at Al Rayyan, the club reached a value of 44.2 million euros, being the best valued in the league.
