Everton Are Planning The Most Ambitious Double Transfer Swoop In The Club's History

Everton Are Planning The Most Ambitious Double Transfer Swoop In The Club's History

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is planning a shock move for Real Madrid duo Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez in the summer.

Ancelotti is keen to rebuild the current Everton squad and he sees the 'Los Blancos' duo as perfect candidates to help bridge the gap between them and the top six.

Spanish publication Marca have reported that Zinedine Zidane's side are open to offers for both players.

Ancelott has worked with both players previously, having been in charge of Madrid when Bale and Rodriguez joined in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

The Italian also tried to sign Colombian midfielder Rodriguez on a permanent deal for former side Bayern Munich in 2017, but only sealed the deal on a two-season loan.

Bale would likely be the trickier of the two to get to Goodison Park as the Welshman is reportedly content with his lifestyle in the Spanish capital.

Both sets of players have rarely been in Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane's plans in either of his spells in charge.

Bale will have two years remaining on his deal after this summer while Rodriguez's contract is set to expire in 2021.

Real Madrid Ready To Accept An Insanely Low Fee For Gareth Bale This Summer

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri isn't afraid to spend big and the club have spent around £450 million since his arrival in 2016.

But both players are on huge contracts in Spain and it would likely take crazy money to lure then to Merseyside.

The hiring of Ancelotti earlier in the season won't have been cheap and he'll likely be expecting significant backing in the transfer window.

published ata month ago

Rodriguez's return to Madrid from Bayern in the summer but has only featured in seven La Liga games this season.

Bale on the other hand has played 14 games but has made headlines this season for other reasons.

He famously celebrated with a banner that read 'Wales. Golf. Madrid. In That Order' after qualifying for the Euros last year that angered a huge section of the Madrid faithful.

It's unclear when the next football transfer window will be due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

All major footballing activity is currently suspended with initial plans being playing games in the summer, when the transfer window would traditionally be open.

Do you think Rodriguez and Bale could make moves to the Premier League this summer?
