Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly no longer interested in the potential signing of James Rodriguez, according to reports, with Everton in pole position.
The Colombian has recently been linked with a move away from Real Madrid in the next transfer window. As reported by El Desmarque in Spain, Wolves’ link with Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes was set to give them an advantage in any pursuit of the 2014 World Cup Golden Ball winner.
As reported by MARCA recently, Real Madrid are now willing to accept lower bids for Rodriguez as they try to rid the Colombian from their wage-bill in the next transfer window.
Wolves were again mentioned as a potential candidate for the £43m-rated star. However, Colombian site Las2Orillas reports that Wolves have ‘discarded’ the opportunity of signing Rodriguez in the summer.
The report states that Mendes is now engaged in discussions with Everton regarding a move to Goodison Park for the player. Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti managed Rodriguez both at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich and it appears that could play a huge role in any transfer.
Wolves fans had previously been excited about the prospect of Rodriguez arriving at Molineux. However, that excitement now looks more applicable to Everton fans after these latest developments.
Regardless of where he ends up, the hunt for Rodriguez is likely to be one of the bigger stories of the next transfer window.
