Report details Everton’s wage plan for James Rodriguez


Report details Everton’s wage plan for James Rodriguez

Everton are reportedly leading the race for the Colombian superstar.

Everton’s interest in James Rodriguez has been detailed for some time and now reports over what a deal for the player would look like are beginning to emerge. 

The interest from Everton appears to be clear. The Colombian is not wanted at Real Madrid and is a huge fan of Carlo Ancelotti. The pair worked together at Madrid and, albeit briefly, at Bayern Munich.

According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, Everton have put a four-year contract offer on the table for the player. 

That has been backed up by reports in Colombia. As reported by Antena2, Everton are set to offer the Colombian a competitive wage at Goodison Park, although it would still come in at half his current salary at the Bernabeu.

Everton are said to be offering a €4.5 million-a-year deal to the player, worth roughly £86,000-a-week. He is currently earning a reported £163,000-a-week at Real Madrid. 


Everton would also need to negotiate a fee with Real Madrid, with the report suggesting he could leave on a free should he come to a suitable financial agreement with the Spanish club. 

The hope is that the promise of regular football under a manager who clearly appreciated him in Ancelotti might convince Rodriguez to accept the relatively low wages on offer. 

 Everton fans will undoubtedly be hoping that this one-time world-beating superstar is brought to Goodison Park, especially at that wage, to help Ancelotti build a side worthy of a European battle.
