Another Chelsea player who has been frequently mentioned in connection with Real Madrid in recent media reports. That would be Reece James, who is the captain of their club.
James was made the new captain after Cesar Azpilicueta joined Atletico Madrid. James now wears the captain’s armband. The Blues’ performances have not improved under Mauricio Pochettino, and as a result, they are now ranked 14th in the Premier League table. This is despite the fact that they have recently enjoyed a good run of games.
The previous year, they ended up in the 12th position in the Premier League. If things don’t start looking up soon, one has to wonder if individuals like James may reevaluate their plans for the future.
In the midst of speculations regarding Real Madrid, Chelsea makes a decision regarding James.
It is believed that Real Madrid is giving James serious consideration as one of their top targets for right-back reinforcements during the upcoming summer transfer window. Recent rumors have also suggested that the captain of Chelsea could be moving to Manchester City. But how do the Blues understand everything that’s going on?
It has been reported by GIVEMESPORT that Chelsea has no intention of severing ties with James. Because he is not available for transfer, they will not review any bids that are submitted for him. On the other hand, the athlete has no intention of ever switching from his childhood team.
As a direct consequence of this, it would appear that acquiring James will be quite challenging. Real Madrid needs to keep other objectives in mind as well.
On the other hand, situations in football can shift dramatically in a short amount of time. For a number of years, prior to his departure from Chelsea earlier this summer to sign with Manchester United at the age of 24, Mason Mount was thought of as a potential future captain for the club. As a consequence of this, one must never discount any possibility.
