Many Everton fans have been hailing James Rodriguez as Pipe Sierra has reported that the Merseyside club have had an offer accepted by Real Madrid for James Rodriguez.
As per the Spanish football journalist, the Toffees have had a €25 million bid accepted, but personal terms and image rights have not yet been agreed.
The Colombian international wishes to have a salary of €8 million plus bonuses (£134,000 per week), which would make him the highest paid player at Goodison Park.
The deal totals at €33 million, which is the equivalent of around £29.6 million in which one EFC supporter described as a ‘bargain’ on Twitter.
Indeed, this would be a statement signing from Carlo Ancelotti given the pedigree of the 29-year old, as he has two UEFA Champions League titles as well as several other major trophies to his name, according to Transfermarkt.
Will Rodriguez be a success at Everton?
These Blues hailed the news as it seems as if Rodriguez may be on his way:
