There have been denials, long-distance exchanges, and a press storm regarding the transfer of Recee James to Madrid.
Real Madrid publicly denied the talkings for Kylian Mbappe and will try to transfer Reece in the next months. The two squads have played twice in the last two years in the UEFA Champions League.
In the first semi back in 2021, Chelsea won and passed in the final to play and win the Champions League.
In 2022, it was Real Madrid who passed through eliminating Chelsea and winning the Champions League. It seems that this has impressed Real Madrid who want his services.
James is linked with Chelsea until 2028 and it would be difficult for Real to buy the player.
The price that Chelsea requires for the player is around £68 million and they will negotiate without this price on the table. Todd Boehly and the board of Chelsea are not asking for more funds but will try to convince the player to stay.
The desire of the player is determinative of the player’s transfer to Santiago Bernabeu.
Earlier, this year it was Sport from Spain who reported this move. The manager of Chelsea Mauricio Pochettino considers the player an important part of the formation of Chelsea and has asked the board to keep the player.
Reece James has publicly made his position clear and wants to stay at Stamford Bridge.
But Real Madrid is a big club and would be an attractive destination for every player. His ability to play higher up the pitch with the strikers and attack the third part of the pitch makes him an attractive option.
Football London reports that the board of Chelsea does not agree to sell the player.
Fotnet24 understands that Chelsea will not sit and talk without the proper terms. James has returned from the injury and the pitch will dictate the conditions of Real’s proposal.
