Real Madrid target Chelsea fullback, adds him to long-term shopping list

Real Madrid have added Chelsea fullback Reece James to their long-term shopping list.

James’ timely return to action following a lengthy lay-off came just in time for Chelsea’s heavyweight clash with Los Blancos on Tuesday night, although it was the visitors who ran out 3-1 victors in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

Nonetheless, James’ quality proved key in helping Chelsea force their way back into the tie in the return fixture.

The Sunday Mirror says Real have now added James to their summer wish-list.

Los Blancos are looking to sign an upgrade on Dani Carvajal, who is now beginning to age despite his remarkable consistency over the years.

Chelsea are not expected to entertain the idea of selling one of their best players, particularly given he is one of their own having graduated from the academy.

Yet the report cites that Real Madrid’s interest could potentially test the resolve of Chelsea’s new owners.
