Real Madrid star James Rodriguez could become teammates with Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi, as Carlo Ancelotti looks to reunite with the misfiring Colombian for a third time.
Ancelotti has a strong rapport with Rodriguez, having worked with him at the Bernebeu as well as during his time as Bayern Munich coach.
Since his return to Madrid the 28-year-old has failed to impress Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, who does not see the Colombian as part of his long term plans.
And, according to The Mirror, Ancelotti has identified Rodriguez as the creative force that can help fire his side up the table.
It is believed that Everton’s decision to appoint the veteran Italian was his strong reputation with football’s top talent.
The Italian had looked to sign Rodriguez last summer when he was in charge of Napoli.
However that deal failed to materialise and the 60-year-old left his post some months later.
Ancelotti got off to a flying start to life since his appointment as Everton boss in December, winning two of his first three Premier League games in charge.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
