Strangely, the end of 2023 was not the best for the steering wheel, but for no reason was it thought that the problems would appear in the immediately following year. To date, it seems that the tensions were greater than thought, since he has not managed to play a single minute.

From Brazil in the last few hours they have been releasing important information, recently, Globo Esporte stated that the breakdown of relations between player and club began a couple of months ago. “The relationship with the Dorival Junior committee was not the best,” they stated about the relationship with the strategist who is now part of the Brazil National Team.

In addition to that, the aforementioned media added what was the game that marked the first chapter of the ‘battle’ between James and São Paulo: “The midfielder was dissatisfied with being substituted at half-time in the classic against Palmeiras, at the Allianz Parque. At that time, São Paulo was losing 3-0, but the match would end 5-0″.

Thiago Carpini arrived at the São Paulo club a couple of months ago, precisely with that change, the ’10’ of the Colombian National Team expected differential treatment, however, that this new coach also told him that he would not go as one of the first basemen in the Brazilian Super Cup, made him no longer tolerate the treatment against him.

“Being left on the bench against Palmeiras, on Sunday, in Belo Horizonte, was the limit. “James refused to travel as an unrelated athlete, which caused embarrassment, since even injured people, like Rodrigo Néstor, accompanied the delegation,” they indicated.

Finally, Globo Esporte adds that a difference in money would be added to the reasons for his departure from Brazil: “James renounces what he would have received until the end of the contract, in June 2025, something close to R$ 16 million, but “The footballer demands what São Paulo owes him: he estimates a value of 2 million euros (around R$ 10.6 million), something that is not confirmed.”

Abysmal drop in James’ value

Since then, the player undertook an extensive journey that led him to be part of teams such as Everton (England), Al Rayyan (Qatar), Olympiacos (Greece) and Sao Paulo (Brazil).

Despite having been among the most valuable players, he is currently valued at $5 million, a figure significantly less than what Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez paid for his services in 2014.

The uncertain future of James Rodríguez generates speculation about which club will give the Colombian a new opportunity. At 32 years old, the player, who at the time promised to be a star, is looking for a new team after failing to establish himself at either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

Rumors point to Besiktas, a historic Turkish football club, as a possible destination for the talented Colombian, who awaits confirmation of his next destination amid uncertainty about his sporting future.
