James Rodriguez who is 29 year old has just signed a two year contract with Everton.
This new deal makes him work with Carlo Ancelotti for the third time after having played under him at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Carlo previously signed Rodriguez from Monaco when he was Real Madrid manager in 2014 but the player didn’t show his full potential before he went on a two season loan to Bayern in 2017, at that time Ancelotti was in charge of Bayern.
After signing the deal, James said:
“I am really, really happy to be at this great club, a club with so much history, and here with a manager who knows me really well,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to achieving great things here – and winning things, which is what everyone’s aim is.
“I’ve come here to try to improve, to get better. I’ve also come here to help the team to win, to play good football – entertaining football.’
“I’m convinced, with Carlo and his technical staff, we can achieve big things and one of the big reasons [I signed] was the presence of Carlo Ancelotti.
“I have enjoyed some great times with him previously at two different clubs. That was a massive reason to come here.”
