Transfer: Rodriguez complete his move to Everton on two-year deal

Everton have completed the signing of James Rodriguez from LaLiga champions Real Madrid on a two-year contract, the England club announced this on Monday, as the Colombian bids to revive his career in England.

The transfer amount were not disclosed but British media reported that Everton paid around $26 million for the midfielder who had a year left with real Madrid.



“I’m really, really happy to sign for this great club, a club with lots of history, and here with a manager who knows me very well,” James told the club’s website.

“I’m looking forward to winning and achieving great things with this club”.

Rodriguez scored 37 goals and provided 42 assists across two seasons at Real Madrid after joining the Spanish side after a great performance at the 2014 World Cup, where he won the Golden Boot with six goals.

Rodriguez is the second Everton’s major signing following the arrival of Brazilian midfielder Allan from Napoli.
