Real Madrid Transfer Royston Drenthe To Everton...FO FREE

Drenthe (R) playing last year for Hércules in their shocking win at the Nou Camp.

Real Madrid and the English club Everton have agreed to "terms" for the transfer of Dutch youngster, and perennial loan-candidate Royston Drenthe. I say "terms" because Everton will acquire Drenthe's services for free, even though Madrid payed the exorbitant price of €14 million for him.

"Real Madrid has transferred the federated rights of the player Royston R. Drenthe to the English clube Everton."

This signing should come as a sigh of relief to madridistas everywhere, as Drenthe has been nothing more than a problem for 90 percent of his tenure in Madrid. He spent last season on loan at now-relegated Hércules, where he had quite a few disciplinary issues (to be fair, some of them stemmed from the fact that Hércules couldn't pay him for quite some time). 

This transfer is the latest in the Real Madrid "operación salida" (or "exit operation") this transfer window, after Fernando Gago and Pedro León left for Roma and Getafe (respectively) on loan deals.
