Reece James remains firmly committed to Chelsea and has no intention of considering offers from other clubs, according to information obtained by 90min.
Recent reports from Spain have suggested that Real Madrid could be interested in pursuing the Chelsea right-back as early as next summer. Some reports even went as far as claiming that James had already given his approval for a potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
While it’s true that Real Madrid holds an interest in Reece James, sources indicate that the Chelsea captain has no desire to depart from Stamford Bridge.
Reece James, who signed a new six-year contract with Chelsea last year, has publicly expressed his desire to achieve success with the club. His sole focus is on leading Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table after a challenging period under the new ownership of BlueCo.
Although James has attracted interest from various other clubs in the past, it is emphasized that he is fully committed to Chelsea.
In addition to Real Madrid, Reece James has previously been scouted by Barcelona, and Bayern Munich, along with former manager Thomas Tuchel, are said to be admirers of the 23-year-old. However, a departure from Chelsea is currently considered highly unlikely.
Reece James has faced a challenging start to the current season, as he sustained a hamstring injury in the opening game, which has kept him sidelined since then. This injury provided an opportunity for new signing Malo Gusto to start in his place. Chelsea acquired Gusto from Lyon for £26 million in January, and while the club has high hopes for the 20-year-old, officials at Chelsea maintain their unwavering belief in Reece James.
Malo Gusto himself acknowledged Reece James’s standing in the team, stating, “I’m not foolish or deluded. I knew before coming here that Reece James is one of the best players in his position. We get along very well. He talks to me a lot. We are at a big club, and there should be quality players in every position. I chose Chelsea because I have a plan. I know what I’m doing.”
