The new generation has well and truly taken over at Real Madrid. Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eder Militao all represent the core of the team for the long haul, leaving very few spots for the veteran stars.

One department that continues to be under the care of the old guard is right-back. Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez continue to be Carlo Ancelotti’s only options in the department, but Real Madrid are actively looking for a new younger name.

Objective Reece James

According to SPORT, Real Madrid have locked in on Chelsea’s Reece James as their next right-back and will not give up on his pursuit.

The men in white plan to activate the mission to sign him next summer, although it will be far from easy.

James has been at Chelsea for his entire career and has racked up 11 goals and 20 assists in that duration. He is currently valued at €65 million on the transfer market, but Real Madrid will not exceed the €40 million barrier for him next June.

His signing is most complicated by the fact that his contract with Chelsea runs until 2028, giving Los Blancos little space to negotiate the transfer fee.

Chelsea are under pressure to sell

Not all is bleak for Florentino Perez in pursuit of his latest target.

Chelsea are under strict scrutiny after their recent splurges on the transfer market and are under pressure to sell players.

The story will be no different next summer. Considering that James is one of the club’s most saleable assets, a departure for the Englishman may not be seen with bad eyes.

However, it is unlikely that Chelsea would consider letting their captain leave very easily, and it will likely take an offer more than the €40 million proposal being lined up.

    Think you’re missing a 1 in front of the 40 as a starting bid 🤣

    Well i for one would not be worried about selling James we have ample coverage in his position however, 40 million euros is a joke. As for desperately needing to sell again is a joke, thus the whole story is a non starter.
