James Rodriguez has Champions League transfer clause in Al Rayyan contract

James Rodriguez has inserted a secret Champions League transfer clause in his contract at new club Al Rayyan that will allow him to leave if a certain club comes in for him.

The Colombia international joined the Qatari club on Wednesday after a year with Everton, moving in a deal worth £7.2million and signing a three-year contract.

However, according to Spanish newspaper AS, Rodriguez will be allowed to leave Al Rayyan on the cheap if French giants Paris Saint-Germain come in for him.

PSG have close links to Qatar as they are owned by the Emir of Qatar and will reportedly monitor Rodriguez's performances for Al Rayyan.

Former PSG manager Laurent Blanc is currently the manager of Al Rayyan and the French side have previously had an interest in signing Rodriguez back in 2019.

Rodriguez joined the Qatari Stars League side on Wednesday after being frozen out at Goodison Park by new manager Rafa Benitez.

Back in August, Rodriguez even admitted during a Twitch stream that he did not know who the Toffees' next match was against.

After arriving on Merseyside last summer from Real Madrid, Rodriguez made 26 appearances for the club, scoring six goals and adding nine assists.

Will James Rodriguez move to Paris Saint-Germain in the future? Let us know in the comments section below.

Despite a promising start for the club, Rodriguez's form faded and when Carlo Ancelotti departed the club in the summer his future was thrown into doubt.

He will now be hoping to reignite his career in the Middle East and impress PSG enough to earn a move and a return to the Champions League.

Al Rayyan currently lie in 16th place in the table after three matchdays and Rodriguez could make his debut for the club on Monday when they host Al Khor in the Qatari Stars League.
