Manchester City have reportedly engaged in discussions with Chelsea regarding the potential signing of Reece James.

According to reports from FootballTransfers, City have expressed interest in bringing Reece James to their squad and have initiated contact with their Premier League counterparts. Kyle Walker recently extended his contract with Manchester City, but at 33 years old, it’s understandable that the club is exploring options for the future, including James.

Nonetheless, it would come as a major surprise if Reece James were to move to Pep Guardiola’s side, given his recent appointment as captain and his signing of a new long-term contract with Chelsea. Such a transfer could be met with significant disapproval from Chelsea’s fanbase.

Reece James, an England international, emerged from Chelsea’s academy, holds the club’s captaincy, and is widely regarded as one of the team’s top performers. Selling him to the current top club in the country would not only be a controversial decision but also send a negative message about Chelsea’s ambitions.

However, supporters likely have little reason to be concerned about Reece James departing Stamford Bridge in the near future. As mentioned earlier, the defender has several years left on his contract, and there’s no immediate need for Chelsea to consider selling him.

While James could potentially serve as a long-term successor to Kyle Walker at Manchester City, Chelsea would be unlikely to entertain the idea of allowing him to join their Premier League rivals.
