James Rodriguez Has A Secret PSG Clause' In New Contract After Leaving Everton

James Rodriguez reportedly has a secret Paris Saint-Germain clause in his new contract signed with Al-Rayyan.

The Colombian star has left Everton and joined the Qatari outfit for an undisclosed fee but it doesn't appear as though he will be sticking around too long.

That's because it's emerged that that Rodriguez' deal contain a very specific exit clause.

AS say that PSG are interested in the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich man and should they offer him a contract, Al-Rayyan, managed by their ex manager Laurent Blanc, must let him leave for nothing.

As we know, PSG are well-stocked with supreme attacking talent such as Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler to name a few.

The Ligue One side are set to keep close tabs on Rodriguez's performances in the Middle East and have strong Qatar connections as their owner is the Emir of the country, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi also holds the same position with the Qatari Sports Investments.

Rodriguez lasted just 12 months at Everton, where he linked up with former boss Carlo Ancelotti for a third time.

He managed six goals in 26 appearances in all competitions - his final appearance coming against Sheffield United on 16 May.

The 30-year-old never had the opportunity to play in front of Everton supporters at Goodison Park, which he described as a pity in his parting message.

"I want to thank my teammates, who welcomed me well, I wish them the best and I also want to thank Everton fans," Rodriguez wrote on Instagram.

"A pity not to have played in Goodison Park with you, it would have been very nice.

"I always tried to give my best and I always wanted to win , that is my mentality. I wish you all the best. JR10."

He was officially unveiled as an Al-Rayyan player in front of fans on Thursday night and will wear the No.10 shirt.
