James Rodriguez has finalized a permanent move to Everton with an announcement expected on Wednesday, according to talkSPORT.
The Colombia international has reached a three-year deal with the Premier League side, where he will reunite with Carlo Ancelotti – with whom he previously worked at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Rodriguez has already passed his medical and should have suffered a significant pay cut to sign for the Merseyside team.
The deal represents a hugely significant coup for Everton, underscoring the caliber of player they are now able to attract under Ancelotti’s tutelage.
Real Madrid are said to demand fees of over £ 20million for the striker, with only 10 months left on his Bernabeu contract.
It’s unclear at this point exactly how much the Toffees shelled out to secure Rodriguez’s signing.
