Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti “watches the meeting” with James Rodriguez of Real Madrid

Array

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly observing a meeting with Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

The Colombian is in excess of the Bernabeu’s requirements and looks set to move this summer.

Madrid wants to cash in the midfielder before his contract ends in 2021, with the Toffees among the clubs involved.

Rodriguez spent a year working under Ancelotti during the Italian period in Madrid in the 2014-15 season.

He was subsequently loaned to Bayern Munich for a two-year period which ended last summer, but has no future at Los Blancos.

Marca reports that Ancelotti is now looking forward to bringing his former star to Goodison Park, and Rodriguez is receptive to the idea.

Ancelotti wanted to bring Rodriguez to Napoli during his period in Serie A, and said in July: “I am very close to James, I value him a lot and he can certainly improve our team.”

Despite moving clubs, Ancelotti still hopes to work again with the 28-year-old.

Wolves and Arsenal have also shown interest, but Rodriguez is thought to prefer to switch to the blue half of Merseyside.

This season he has only made 13 appearances for Madrid in a campaign marked by injury problems.

A tax has yet to be discussed, but Madrid will no doubt want to recover some of the £ 71 million packages that they arranged to land Rodriguez in 2014.

Ancelotti is also said to be targeting his former Neapolitan position Arkadiusz Milik.

Sports Witnesses cite reports in Italy that suggest Everton is already arguing over the signing of the Polish striker.

Napoli reportedly requested a commission in the region of £ 40-45 million, but could be willing to sell if Everton were willing to pay at least half.

Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla and Lille central defender Gabriel Magalhaes were also linked to the club.
