Everton star Richarlison spoke to Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte this week about his future at Goodison Park.
The former Watford man has been a huge hit with the Toffees since his £35 million (BBC) move back in 2018. Richarlison has hit double figures in goals in both his campaigns as an Everton player and bigger teams have started to pay attention.
He claimed last month that Manchester United and Barcelona tried to lure him away from Goodison Park during the course of the season but he chose to stay with the Toffees. (Los Desimpedidos)
The rumours will certainly not go away and the Brazilian will remain a target to the bigger clubs in the future as well. Everton fans certainly don’t want to lose their star striker but Richarlison has hinted that he might choose to jump ship if a good offer arrives.
He told Globo Esporte: “I evolved a lot here at Everton – now with Ancelotti I will grow more. He (Ancelotti) asked me to hold on a little, but it all depends, if a good proposal arrives we sit down and talk. But I think I can hold on for another season.”
Richalrison extended his contract with Everton midway through the season and the Toffees are in a strong position when it comes to negotiations.
However, if a big offer does arrive and Richarlison decides to leave, there isn’t much Everton can do which would be a real blow for them considering that he has been their best player since he joined the club.
Everton fans will be hoping that he sticks around for years to come. Richarlison admitted that he might stay put for another year but it is likely that he will consider his options next summer, especially if Everton fail to qualify for Europe.
