James Rodriguez is in talks with a club in Qatar over a move away from Everton.
Surplus to requirements at Goodison, the Colombian has been given permission to speak to the currently unspecified outfit with Rafa Benitez keen to offload his pay packet of over £200,000 a week.
Although a deal is yet to be completed, Rodriguez was pictured at Manchester Airport on Sunday evening.
A regular pick when fit under former manager Carlo Ancelotti, the 30-year-old was told he would be allowed to leave by current incumbent Benitez earlier this summer.
A move to Porto fell through late in the window while Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir also showed interest in his services.
