Real Madrid and Everton reach an agreement on the Colombian midfielder’s case after coach Carlo Ancelotti calls to convince the player. The prestigious transfer of European football revealed that the James Rodriguez deal to Everton was almost complete.
James Rodriguez finally left Real
On August 31, coach Ancelotti discussed with the former Monaco star by phone to persuade him to come to Goodison Park to play football. On September 2 (local time), James will be in Everton for a medical checkup.
The Telegraph revealed that the handsome Colombian midfielder will sign a 3-year contract with Everton. Guardian said the port city team had to spend about 25 million pounds on Real to complete the deal.
In the summer of 2014, James arrived at Real for £ 63 million, becoming the fourth most expensive contract in world football history at that time. Real has to reduce the price of James because his contract with the club will expire in June 2021.
James spent two seasons being loaned to Bayern Munich, before returning to Real in June 2019. James played more than 400 minutes in La Liga 2019/20 and did not contribute much to Real’s championship.
Last month, the 29-year-old revealed that he was not facilitated by Real’s leadership, despite losing his place at Real. The midfielder also confirmed that coach Zinedine Zidane had a preference for certain players in the Real team.
James Rodriguez will join the Premier League
Under the guidance of a coach who is always seen as a spiritual father, James hopes to find the sky again in the most exciting tournament on the planet. From Real to Everton may be a step backward in his career, but the 29-year-old midfielder has reason to make that difficult decision.
Six years ago, James was one of the most-watched attacking midfielders on the planet. He returned from a glorious World Cup, with the title of top scorer and a super volley that surprised fans.
James was sold by Real to Everton for £ 20 million, roughly the price of Allan, a less famous midfielder who just arrived at Goodison Park from Napoli. In the summer of 2017, James went to Bayern Munich under a two-year loan contract with a buyout clause worth 42 million euros, a small amount compared to the market at that time.
