Richarlison departure could represent sign of the times at Everton if results don’t improve

The former Watford man has been one of Everton’s standout performers this season.

Everton shocked football during the summer when they plunged a massive £50 million on the signing of Richarlison from Everton, as confirmed by BBC Sport.

The Brazilian has contributed 11 goals and two assists during his maiden season at Goodison Park.

The form hasn’t been good for the Toffees though this season and boss Marco Silva is struggling to discover a winning formula.

That might not bode well for the summer.

According to AS, Spanish giants Atletico Madrid have made contact with Everton regarding their 21-year-old talisman.

Rojiblancos boss Diego Simeone is keen on adding the attacker to his ranks as he looks to remain competitive among the Real Madrid and Barcelona domination.

Everton must tread carefully.

 

The Toffees are ninth in the division and have lost five of their last six games in all competitions.

If Silva is to keep his best players at the club this summer then he needs to revive results.

Everton’s best players will need a reason to stay at the club and finishing with a flourish would help Silva.

Richarlison will naturally have his head turned by interest from such a big club.

If the Toffees don’t pick up then these type of departures could become a sign of the times in the blue half of Merseyside.
