Blow to Real Madrid as they lose a star player to premier league giants

Football daily - latest from all over Europe

Real Madrid has had a good season having won the laliga tittle despite having been knocked out of champions league by Manchester City due to Rafael Varane double error. The 2017/18 Champions League winners have had a terrific form since the return of Zinadine Zidane, he seems to have a special understanding with his players. Real Madrid has a lot of quality players meaning there is high competition for game time in the Bernebeu.

James Rodriguez couldn't withstand the competition in the Bernebeu and opted to depart this summer. Madrid has world class midfielders like Modric, Kroos , Casemiro, Valverde and many others. Rodriguez had to fight for his place in the squad but the pressure was too much.

The Brazilian has signed a 2 year deal with Everton with an option to extend for one more year. Anceloti is a big fan of Rodriguez. He even signed him when he was incharge of Bayern Munich. This will be a huge boost for Anceloti's midfield problems.
