Reece James and his potential future: The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti has worked out quite well for Real Madrid till now. The Royal Whites are currently at the top of the table in La Liga and should have an easy run to the title this season. In UEFA Champions League, they are now in the semi-finals after defeating the defending champions Chelsea in the Round of 16. With things going well and in their favour, the club is planning to bring in a few star players in the upcoming transfer window.
If the reports are to be believed, Kylian Mbappe is a long term target for the club and is expected to become a marquee signing in the summer window for the Los Blancos. Other than him, the club wants to go all way to rejuvenate the entire squad and bring in younger and promising talents. That is why Real Madrid is looking to offload a lot of their players from the current squad to open up space in the wage bill and get some cash to purchase a few more big names.
One of the names to surface as a transfer target for Real Madrid in recent weeks is Reece James. The English right-back played against Real in the Round of 16 and Ancelotti was reportedly happy with his performance. The club talisman Karim Benzema also showed his respect to James when he asked for his shirt after the game.
Reece James to Spanish Capital?
The 22-year old still has three years left on his current contract and is perceived as a possible future captain of the club by many fans. Reece’s father also once revealed his dream of watching his son captain his boyhood club once in the future. Amidst all these, the recent chaos around the club may change a lot of things.
The club sale is yet to be finalized and the arrival of the new owners can change the entire atmosphere around the club. So, nothing can be ruled out at this stage. If a tempting bid arrives from Spain, it may result in the departure of the right-back. Chelsea’s manager Thomas Tuchel and the fans certainly do not want to see their youngster leave the club, so an interesting situation possibly awaits in London.
