Carlo Ancelotti has finally addressed the growing rumors of James Rodriguez coming to Merseyside!
However, the old fox was his usual wily self while answering the questions.
“We need good players,” he said, when asked about Rodriguez, Thiago Silva, Adrien Rabiot, and others.
“The players that we are going to sign will be good players. It doesn’t matter whether they are young or old; with experience or without experience. It is important to have good players.
“The names that you mentioned are the same names that were mentioned one year ago when I was in Napoli; two years ago when I was in Bayern! They follow me!
“James Rodriguez? I like, I like a lot as a player. When I left Madrid, James Rodriguez followed me to Munich. He came to play. But he followed me as a rumour to Napoli and now he is following me to here Everton as a rumour. I have to be honest – I like him a lot.
“But he is a Real Madrid player. I think he will still be a Real Madrid player.”
As I said: I have to be honest. We are looking for players,” he said.
“But I do not have to look at the players that I already had – I know them. What we are doing now is to prepare well for the games, to prepare well for the end of the season. We are looking for players….honestly, there are a lot of good players around the world.”
