Agent Jorge Mendes has conjured up the ideal of a swap deal involving Rafael Leao and Everton, according to a report.
According to Calciomercato.com, Mendes is considering the idea of trying to take Leão to Everton for a new experience in England and James Rodriguez would go the other way. It was a discussion that initially took place a few weeks ago but is one which could certainly gather momentum now Hakan Calhanoglu has left.
James Rodriguez has experience, international pedigree and knows how to produce moments of magic as a number 10. He responds perfectly to the identikit for the needs of Milan, who are evaluating the best options on the market to replace Calhanoglu.
A possible problem to solve would be that relating to the salary that the Colombian receives, but it can be worked on considering his contract is expiring in 2022. Leão has been liked by Everton a lot for some time, and there were also contacts in recent months.
