When you look into others from the outside, you may see that the club is in a similar position in the Premier League table and is pursuing a similar goal as other managers have tried to do in the past.
And Carlo Ancelotti has already managed to change a lot at Everton.
Everton’s arrival of Carlo Ancelotti in December 2019, the assumption of the largest managerial position in Everton’s history, was an interesting turning point in the history of transfer.
The arrival in Goodison Park of one of Europe’s most respected, qualified and successful managers was undoubtedly the largest appointment the club has made in its long and historic history.
But the summer transfer window proved to be a turning point for many fans in the blue half of Merseyside, continuing a trend that began as early as December 2019.
In the final phase of the 2019/20 season it became clear that the squad was in urgent need of improvement in key areas.
It became clear that Farhad Moshiri was determined to make Everton a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. If Ancelotti cannot achieve this goal, surely no one can.
With this appointment, however, changes had to be made.
Perhaps the club has spent too much money in the past, but if you want to hire a manager of Ancelotti’s caliber, you have to give him all the support he wants.
Smart signatures like Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ben Godfrey, who cover the positions Everton needed most, were expected when they made their moves in the transfer window.
James Rodriguez, who comes to Merseyside, the same player who illuminated the 2014 World Cup with dazzling feats of genius, has now set a benchmark for others to follow.
But the signing of the contract was also unlike anything the club has managed to do before. It was – measured by worldwide recognition – potentially the biggest transfer the club has ever made.
The Blues is now a destination that some of the world’s most prominent stars can really consider, especially because of the man at the top.
And now Everton has been associated with a player of a different caliber as we move towards the January transfer.
Rodriguez, of course, has worked with Ancelotti before, and it is the Italian’s strong team management techniques that make him so highly regarded by most of his former charges.
A Real Madrid playmaker, dissatisfied with his current season at the Bernabeu, looking for new challenges to prove himself again – and someone who has worked with Ancelotti before.
Does that sound familiar to you?
One of the most famous names, who is said to find the blues interesting, as he wants to improve this winter, is Isco.
