Everton yesterday concluded signing of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid. The 29-year-old joined the club on a two-year contract, with the potential to extend it for another year.
Everton officially paid £ 20 m to secure his signature. Bayern Munich superstar Thomas Muller took to Twitter yesterday after his move to Everton to give a lovely four-word message to Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, who captured the Golden Boot at the 2014 Brazilian World Cup, has failed to make an impact at Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.
Yesterday the Colombian said Carlo Ancelotti was the big reason he chose to join the club in Merseyside.
In fact, Rodriguez played his best football at Madrid under the Italian boss. He also played under him at Bayern Munich whilst on loan from Madrid. It means, the pair will team up for the third time.
Rodriguez, who was entering the last year of his contract with the Spanish champions, featured 14 times for Los Blancos last season.
The Colombian midfielder won two La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues with Real but was then loaned to Bayern for two seasons, winning the Bundesliga in both campaigns.
Everton have also signed Allan from Napoli, and are close to signing Abdoulaye Doucoure from Watford this week.
