Real Madrid ready to offer €40 million for Chelsea’s homegrown talent next summer

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.

Following Barcelona’s awe-inspiring comeback win against Celta Vigo yesterday, the pressure is on Real Madrid to regain top spot in La Liga as they travel to Civitas Metropolitano to lock horns against Atletico Madrid.

The first Madrid derby of the season will not feature Vinicius Jr, who had to pull out of the travelling squad today due to a stomach bug.

Jude Bellingham has been given the green light, though, and is likely starting as the out and out striker for this game, with Joselu benched. The Englishman is joined by Rodrygo by his side, while Luka Modric plays behind them as the attacking midfielder.

Behind this trio, Toni Kroos has been handed the keys as the pivot, with Aurelien Tchouameni benched. Eduardo Camavinga starts alongside Federico Valverde as the central midfielders.

Lucas Vazquez fills in for the injured Daniel Carvajal at right-back, while Fran Garcia comes back to take over his left-back spot from Nacho. David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger round off the quadrant in central defence, screening Kepa in goal.

Confirmed Madrid XI: Kepa; Vazquez, Rudiger, Alaba, Garcia; Valverde, Kroos, Camavinga; Modric; Rodrygo, Bellingham
