New OL strongman John Textor dreams of recruiting James Rodriguez… to strengthen another club in which he is the majority shareholder.
John Textor has a lot of resources… and ideas. New majority shareholder of Olympique Lyonnais, the American businessman is also committed to Botafogo or Crystal Palace. And according to information from the Colombian press, John Textor sees things very big for all the clubs in which he has shares. The day after his press conference in Lyon, during which he made it known that his ultimate ambition was to win the Champions League, John Textor digs an ultra ambitious track for the future of his Brazilian club Botafogo. Proof of his financial means, which will reassure supporters of Olympique Lyonnais, John Textor wants to bring James Rodriguez to the Brazilian club. A luxury track for Botafogo, which however has little chance of materializing.
John Textor dreams of James Rodriguez in Botafogo
Currently at Al-Rayyan in Qatar, James Rodriguez is estimated at around 5 million euros by his club. But that’s not the problem for John Textor, who may come up against James Rodriguez’s desire to return to Europe this summer. Indeed, the Colombian press indicates that despite the financial means of John Textor, Botafogo has almost no chance of winning the bet. At only 30, the former Real Madrid and AS Monaco player wants to return to Europe next season. Olympique Lyonnais supporters would advise John Textor to attract James Rodriguez to the Rhône, but the Qatari salary of the Colombian international still risks making Jean-Michel Aulas cough, who probably does not want the salary scale explodes immediately in Lyon, especially since Alexandre Lacazette has made great financial efforts to return to Les Gones. Be that as it may, the James Rodriguez track in Botafogo proves that John Textor has the means to match his ambitions where he invests, which will reassure everyone in Lyon.
