Real Madrid is interested in Reece James from Chelsea FC
According to information from Madrid and goal, Real Madrid is one of numerous top European clubs that deal with a transfer from Chelseas Reece James. Madrid’s plan would be to sign the full -back in the summer of 2023.
In the short term, however, PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has priority after being agreed with blues defender Antonio Rüdiger. The team of coach Carlo Ancelotti is also in the race for midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni from AS Monaco.
James has developed into one of the key players at Chelsea and would be a big loss for Thomas Tuchel, who counts on him as a regular player. The right -back is one of the actors around whom the team wants to build the club hierarchy in the next few years.
James is not one of the top earners at Chelsea and has a contract until 2025. The situation is similar to that of Mason Mount: Both players have been at Chelsea since their youth, but are the worst paid players in the western Londons.
Even if the list of tasks that the new owners have to do when they arrive is very long, they have to secure the long -term future of both players who will explore their options by summer 2023. Especially when things do not run according to plan in the coming months.
The contractual situation of the two players surprised the European competitors of the blues. Both players emphasize that they do not just want to let their contract expire, but have so far hardly spoken about an extension of the contract.

Who could leave Chelsea this summer?
Cesar Azpilicueta is still in the sights of FC Barcelona, Andreas Christensen has already made a change to Camp Nou and Rüdiger goes to Madrid. Jorginho belongs to Juventus Turin’s summer goals and could leave the club, while Conor Gallagher is supposed to return to Crystal Palace after his loan.
Saul Niguez will probably not be permanently obliged by Chelsea, since the club cannot make use of this option due to the sanctions. In addition, the contracts of N’Golo Kante and Marcos Alonso expire next year, so that they have to negotiate new contracts if they want to stay.
Several loan players attract interest, including Armando Broja and Levi Colill, who are under contract with Southampton or Huddersfield. However, the blues cannot sign or sell players until a new owner is found.
