Everton duo considering exits after Carlo Ancelottis departure

Everton duo want to leave after Ancelotti's exit

Everton duo James Rodriguez and Richarlison are weighing up exits after the departure of manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti recently stepped down from the managerial position to return as Real Madrid's head coach for a second time.

This has led to speculation over Rodriguez and Richarlison, and The Athletic claims that they were left stunned by the Italian's exit.

Rodriguez joined the Toffees because of Ancelotti's presence. He bagged six goals and nine assists despite multiple injuries.

Richarlison was not at his best last season, but still registered 13 goals and three assists in all competitions for the club.

Both players will push for summer exits after Ancelotti's departure. Richarlison has been linked with a reunion with the Italian.

The Toffees rejected a stunning £80 million offer from Barcelona for the Brazilian at the beginning of last year.

Amid the financial impact of COVID-19, they are unlikely to receive a similar bid this summer. He is valued at around £54m.
