James Rodriguez is set to join Olympiacos on loan from Qatar Stars League Al-Rayyan, according to Fabrizio Romano. The two clubs are apparently in full agreement over the proposed temporary transfer of the Colombian playmaker, who has flown to Greece today (Wednesday) to undergo a medical. If that goes as planned, the signing of his contract with Olympiacos should become imminent.
The Colombian has had a colourful career so far. He attracted much attention during his spells with FC Porto and AS Monaco, and after he played a fantastic tournament at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Real Madrid swooped in for his signature. Things, however, soon started going downhill for him there, when Zinedine Zidane came in and changed the preferred formation from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3, restoring defensive balance by sacrificing Rodriguez for more defence-oriented Casemiro.
Rodriguez has been trying to find his feet ever since, and having spent two years on loan at Bayern Munich, he eventually left Madrid for Everton as a free agent in 2020. Al-Rayyan came and took him to Qatar a year later, and he has so far made 15 appearances in all competitions for them, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.
