Real Madrid have reportedly set their sights on Chelsea’s Reece James as a potential replacement for their current right-back, Dani Carvajal. According to Spanish publication AS, the La Liga giants are looking to move on from Carvajal and are considering James as their top target for the position.
James has been a standout performer for Chelsea this season, despite struggling with injuries. He has made 18 appearances for the Blues, scoring two goals and providing two assists in all competitions. The 23-year-old has also earned 16 senior caps for England and is widely regarded as one of the best right-backs in the country.
Real Madrid’s interest in James comes as no surprise, given his impressive performances for Chelsea. The Spanish giants have a long-standing reputation for signing some of the world’s best players and have been linked with several top-class right-backs in recent months.
While James would undoubtedly be a great addition to Real Madrid’s squad, Chelsea are unlikely to let him go without a fight. The young defender is a crucial part of the Blues’ plans for the future, and they have no intention of selling him anytime soon.

James has also shown unwavering commitment to Chelsea, making it clear that he is happy at Stamford Bridge and is focused on helping the club achieve their goals. Any move for James would, therefore, require Real Madrid to make a significant offer that Chelsea cannot refuse.
If Real Madrid does manage to sign James, they will be getting a player with incredible potential. James is a versatile and dynamic full-back, equally comfortable in defence and attack. He has a great range of passing, excellent ball control, and can score goals from distance. His presence would undoubtedly strengthen Real Madrid’s defence and add a new dimension to their attack.
In conclusion, while Real Madrid’s interest in Reece James is understandable, it remains to be seen if they can lure him away from Chelsea. The young defender is a vital part of the Blues’ plans, and they will do everything they can to keep him. However, if Real Madrid can make a convincing offer, James could be an excellent addition to their squad.
