The Career of James Rodriguez

Before we get into all the rumors surrounding the recent events, let’s take a look at the career stats of James Rodriguez and get to know him better. 

The Columbian superstar, James Rodriguez, is a player who is mainly known to play winger and attacking midfielder positions. His success has often had him compared to Carlos Valderrama and many believe Rodriguez to be the successor of Valderrama. Rodriguez is known for his incredible vision and techniques. He is considered to be one of the best playmakers in football. 

After winning several trophies and gaining more and more popularity in Europe, by 2014 Rodriguez was picked up by Real Madrid for £63 million as his transfer fee. With this huge transfer fee, Rodriguez became the most expensive football player in Columbia, the spot which was initially taken by Radamel Falcao. He also became one of the most expensive players in the world of football during that time. 

Before he went to Germany to play for Bayern Munich back in 2017, Rodriguez had also claimed the title of the La Liga Team of the Season in his first debut season. Then he moved on to Everton, the Premier League club on a completely free transfer. Even though he only played with Everton for one season, he accomplished a great deal with the club. 

Rodriguez’s journey was of course still not over. In 2021 he played for a club in Qatar called Al-Raiyyan. He then played for Olympiacos, a club in Greece, back in 2022. He spent 13 years of his football career away from South America, but then eventually returned by joining his current club in Brazil, Sao Paulo. 

We saw James Rodriguez kick off his international career with the under-20 team of Columbia and he took the team to victory in the Toulon Tournament that took place in 2011. During the FIFA Under 20 World Cup of 2011, he also had the opportunity to captain his under-20 team. Given his amazing performance, it is no surprise that James Rodriguez became a regular in the senior squad by the time he was only 20. Rodriguez played in the FIFA World Cup of 2014 and 2018 where he also claimed the Golden Boot back in 2014 and he also got himself included in the All-Star Team of the Cup. 

James Rodriguez Relationships

Now that we have a summary of most of his achievements, let us take a look at the relationships James Rodriguez had. 

Back in 2010, we saw Rodriguez get engaged with the Columbian volleyball player, Daniela Ospina. Even though the couple were together for only six years, in 2013, the couple had a daughter together, Salome Rodriguez Ospina. However, fast forwarding to 2017, it was revealed that the couple were calling it quits with each other because of several different reasons. We believe a lot of it had to do with their busy schedules while having a baby. 

While it was never officially announced, James Rodriguez was also rumored to be in a relationship with Helga Lovekaty, a model. We did however receive official confirmation of the famous footballer dating another model called Shanon de Lima. 

During his time in Qatar where he played with the club Al-Raiyyan, there were also a bunch of different rumors going on about him dating Erika Schneider, a famous model from Brazil. This connection was made after Rodriguez had confirmed to everyone that he is currently single.

Is James Rodriguez Going Trans?

There has been a recent rumor going around saying that James Rodriguez is apparently planning on getting hormone therapy so that he can become a woman. The root cause of these rumors going around is some messages that were leaked from WhatsApp. According to these text messages, when Rodriguez suffered an injury playing at Anfield, he had to undergo surgery to recover from the injury. The surgery is what led to Rodriguez changing his gender. 

This is the rumor that has been spread across the entire football community and many fans are in a state of shock and confusion. We are here to tell you that all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt. It is necessary to keep in mind that all of these rumors are completely baseless and have no solid evidence to back them up.
