Carlo Ancelotti reportedly have an ambitious plan to convince Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez to join Everton.
Real Madrid are willing to entertain offers for both players according to Marca.
The Italian coach was able to get the best out of Bale and Rodriguez during his time as Real boss.
Ancelotti also wanted to sign Rodriguez when he was the Bayern Munich manager.
Rodriguez ended up signing a two-year loan deal for the Bundesliga giants in the summer in which Ancelotti left.
The Everton coach knows it will be hard to persuade Bale to move to Goodison Park, however, as the former Tottenham star is happy with his life in Spain.
Marca also report that Bale does not care that he is regularly on the bench for Los Blancos.
The 60-year-old manager is convinced that he can get both to sign for Everton, with Bale having two years left on his contract come the summer.
Rodriguez will have only one year left on his current deal and does not appear to be in Zinedine Zidane's future plans.
GoalBall understand Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is willing to offer both players a lucrative long-term contract.
