INSIDER: Florentino and Ancelotti want Everton attacker James at Real Madrid

Real Madrid want to re-sign James Rodriguez from Everton.

That's according to Marca's Javier Hernández Bonnet, who reports former Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti wants James to join him in Madrid.

“They tell me that yes, James Rodríguez does have the option to return to Real Madrid," he said.

“The president wants him; the coach has asked for him.

“Obviously, those who arrive will have to reduce their salary, and James Rodríguez would be part of that reduction.

“The source says that James Rodriguez would have no cost for Real Madrid; he would recover an asset.

“Within the conditions of the move to Everton was that if he was asked for by any technical director he could return without cost."
