Real Madrid scouts observed Reece James while he was at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Due to Chelsea’s predicament, some players might be transferred in the upcoming summer, but they would have to make a significant offer to acquire the full-back, as his club has set a price of €50 million.
Real Madrid is aware that their two full-back positions need to be improved. Mendy is below Camavinga in the pecking order, and Carvajal lacks competition at his level in the event of an injury. Reece James is the main target for Los Blancos on the right side of the defense because of this.
The Englishman traveled to Madrid on Wednesday to watch Chelsea lose the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal by a score of 2-0. A possible departure in the summer is more likely given the player’s opponents’ interest and the situation in London. The player was being closely watched.
After making such a large investment, the Blues will need to sell key players because they are far from the Champions League spots. One of them might be the England international, but even so, ‘Marca’ claims that he won’t be cheap by any means.
According to their report, Stamford Bridge valued him at €50 million. Although expensive, it is in keeping with the terms of his contract, which runs through June 2027.
