Real Madrid is no stranger to signing Chelsea stars. Over the years, Los Blancos have signed players from the London club such as Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Arjen Robben, Michael Essien, Ricardo Carvalho, and others. Kepa Arrizabalaga is currently on loan at Real Madrid for the season.
Another Chelsea player who has recently been extensively linked with Real Madrid. That would be their club captain, Reece James.
After Cesar Azpilicueta left for Atletico Madrid, James was given the captain’s armband. Despite a favorable run of games, the Blues’ performances have not improved under Mauricio Pochettino, as they currently rank 14th in the Premier League table.
They finished 12th in the Premier League last season. And one has to wonder if guys like James will reassess their future if things don’t improve quickly.
Chelsea makes a choice on James amid Real Madrid rumors
Real Madrid is thought to consider James as one of their top targets for right-back reinforcements next summer. The Chelsea captain has also recently been linked with Manchester City. But how do the Blues interpret it all?
Chelsea, according to GIVEMESPORT, have no plans to sever ways with James. He is not available for transfer, and they will not consider any bids. At the same time, the athlete has no plans to leave his boyhood club.
As a result, it appears that signing James will be extremely difficult. Real Madrid must have alternate goals in mind.
At the same time, things in football can change very quickly. Mason Mount was regarded as a future Chelsea captain for many years until leaving earlier this summer to join Manchester United at the age of 24. As a result, nothing should ever be ruled out.
