Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has said that James Rodriguez will be most likely to stay another year at Real Madrid diminishing the hopes of him joining Everton. His future at Real has been under speculations during the past few months. He returned back to Spain in the last season after spending two years of a loan spell at the German club Bayern Munich and he was looking forward to earning a regular spot at the squad of Zinedine Zidane.
The striker has only appeared in 14 games in this season and his contract at Real would be expiring on next season. Madrid won their match against Athletic Club on Sunday but on the match, he wasn’t even benched. When asked about this on the post-match session Zidane has commented that the players need to be left out due to his own reasons and he will not be elaborating the reason for absence anymore. He was brought to the club on 2014 from Monaco for £68 million but he in his stay at the club was unable to unleash his full potential.
