Reece James Transfer News: Is Reece James available in €50m for Real Madrid

Reece James Transfer News: Despite Chelsea’s poor showing in this week’s UEFA Champions League, the Spanish news site MARCA claims that Real Madrid is still interested in signing Reece James. And he may be available for as little as €50 million from Chelsea. The Blues need to strike a financial balance, therefore they may have to write down the cost of the 23-year-old player.

Since making his way into the Chelsea starting lineup, Reece James has established himself as a top fullback in the Premier League. A number of academy graduates, including the English international, benefited from Frank Lampard’s brief time at Stamford Bridge. And he’s become a major player for Chelsea.

The 23-year-old has struggled with his fitness throughout the season. He has not been performing at his best. In 22 games, he has contributed two goals and two assists, which is a respectable total. Meanwhile, Real Madrid is reportedly interested in signing James because of his development.

Due to his inconsistent play, right-back Dani Carvajal has made the Merengues look for a replacement. After overcoming lengthy injury woes, the Spanish international has shown inconsistent performance. Carvajal is getting on in years, and it’s time for Real Madrid to start thinking about what comes next at right back.

Furthermore, neither Alvaro Odriozola nor Lucas Vazquez figure into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans at this time. Therefore, Real Madrid should get a right-back this year. And Reece James, a defender for Chelsea, has apparently caught the attention of Los Blancos.

Recent rumours have claimed that Real Madrid may be holding off on their attack for the time being. However, they may have a chance to get James from Chelsea this year. That’s because, after blowing their budget in the last two transfer windows, the Blues need to get their finances back in order. According to the article, the 23-year-old could be had for as little as €50 million.

James’s contract expires in 2028, so paying €50 million for him seems excessive. The 23-year-old is willing to extend his stay at Chelsea into the summer, therefore a transfer may not happen. It remains to be seen, though, whether Real Madrid can reach an accord in the coming months.
