A report from Spanish publication SPORT has emerged that Real Madrid are already contemplating a replacement for Dani Carvajal and for that matter, Chelsea captain Reece James has been identified as a potential candidate.

Real Madrid are actively seeking to bolster their right side of defence and have set their sights on James, with the anticipation that he could serve as a pivotal component in Carlo Ancelotti’s strategic framework, much like his compatriot Jude Bellingham.

The team from the Spanish capital remain deeply committed to rejuvenating its squad, prioritizing the development of young talent.

The addition of Bellingham, coupled with the recent contract extensions for Vinicius and Rodrygo, reflects the club’s dedication to building a bright future. 

These moves align well with the earlier acquisitions like Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, who are poised to become integral pillars of the team in the upcoming years, alongside the likes of Federico Valverde.

Madrid have an alternative, but Ancelotti not convinced

On the right-back position, Ancelotti relies on the experienced Carvajal, showing less preference for a prominent player like Lucas Vazquez.

In this context, James has emerged as a promising alternative, capable of seamlessly fitting into the right-back position without any difficulty.

It is said that Ancelotti views James as a valuable addition to his defensive lineup, and in Madrid, following the positive impact of Bellingham’s arrival, there is a growing inclination towards scouting talent in England once more. 

Furthermore, even the feedback from the technical office scouts regarding the Chelsea player has been highly favourable.

Operation difficult

Despite the interest, Madrid acknowledge the formidable challenges involved in acquiring a player like James from Chelsea.

To begin with, it must be noted that the player rose through the ranks of Chelsea’s youth system, having joined the club’s youth ranks at the tender age of six.

Furthermore, with a contractual commitment that extends until June 30, 2028, securing James’ services for Real Madrid appears to be a formidable task.

However, Real Madrid believe that the player might be swayed by the team’s underwhelming performance this season, languishing in the 11th spot in the Premier League. 

Additionally, the allure of the ‘Bellingham effect’ within the Real Madrid ranks could potentially influence the player should he decide to entertain their offers as well.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
