The former Banfield, who was released from Olympiacos of Greece, would be added in the next transfer window.

James Rodriguez (31) is one of Colombia's most talented footballers in recent years. He appeared in Banfield, where he shone and was a fundamental part of the team that was crowned champion of the Apertura 2009 by the hand of Julio Falcioni. And from there his career was on the rise. He landed in Porto de Portugal and after a brief stint with Monaco of the Ligue 1 of France, he was the scorer of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. With that momentum he arrived at Real Madrid and then jumped to Bayern Munich.

From there his career went into crisis. He did not do well at Everton and tried his luck at Al Rayyan FC in Qatar, where the weather and injuries had him to ill. He didn't last long either and moved to Greece to play for Olympiacos. Nor did he stand. His contract was terminated last April. That's why he's looking for a club. And the club that seems to have all the numbers is Jorge Almirón's Boca.

Strong rumors

Why? This is what the Colombian press assures. " The story is very simple: several businessmen met, one of them has links in European football, with interests in Spanish football, a man who manages very good capital and is based in Argentina, "said journalist Javier Hernández Bonnet, on Blu Radio.

And he continued: "The proposal was to buy the rights of the player, a contract with a significant sum of money, which is very close to the one that Botafogo was rumored to have made. The task was to get the player and make him play in a giant of Argentina, before taking him back to football in Spain. The group of businessmen puts the ticket and gives it to Boca Juniors."

The idea closes James Rodríguez, who these days works alone to be ten points physically and be able to play the Qualifiers with the Colombian National Team, directed by the Argentine Néstor Lorenzo. For now, without rhythm, the call for the FIFA date was lost, in which the coffee cast will play on Friday 16 against Iraq and four days later against Germany.

Botafogo of Brazil and Besiktas of Turkey appeared as competitors, but in the end the Europeans got out of the competition. Brazilians seduce, but not as much as Boca. In addition, James already knows what it is like to live in the Argentina of his times as a figure of the Drill.

"It would be a three-year contract, the operation is mounted. The great effort is made by the businessmen, Boca does not, "added the journalist, who takes for granted the move that will deposit James Rodríguez in the club of La Ribera.
