Real Madrid's James Rodriguez 'On The Verge' Of Signing Three-Year Deal With Everton

Real Madrid's James Rodriguez 'On The Verge' Of Signing Three-Year Deal With Everton

Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez is 'on the verge' of joining Premier League side Everton on a three-year deal, according to reports in Spain.

Carlo Ancelotti, who managed the player during spells at Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, has convinced Rodriguez that Goodison Park is the place to be ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, with their strong working relationship playing a 'crucial' role in the move, according to Marca.

A deal for the Colombian international will likely be worth between €25-€30 million.

Ancelotti is keen to rebuild the current Everton squad after a 12th placed finish in the league last season, and he sees the Los Blancos player as a perfect candidates to help bridge the gap between them and the top six.

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

He will now be hoping the get the best out of Rodriguez, who some would say has failed to live up to expectations in recent years.

The player enjoyed his best spell at Real Madrid under Ancelotti during his first season at the club, netting 16 goals after completing the £63 million move from Monaco after an impressive 2014 World Cup.

But he struggled to maintain a place in Los Blancos' starting XI in the coming years, and was eventually given a loan move to Bayern in a bid to kickstart his career.

Rodriguez produced glimpses of his former self for the Bundesliga side, scoring 14 goals in 43 games before returning to Madrid for the 2019/20 season, where he made 14 appearances.
