- Madrid looking to replace Carvajal
- Reece James the key target
- Has a contract with Chelsea until 2028
WHAT HAPPENED? The Spanish powerhouses have been keeping an eye on the Blues skipper for a while now as they look to replace long-standing right-back Carvajal. James has pleased everyone at the Bernabeu, particularly manager Carlo Ancelotti, according to Mundo Deportivo. The right-back’s long-term Stamford Bridge contract does not expire until 2028, and he has not indicated that he plans to leave west London.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: With 386 appearances in 10 years for Madrid, Carvajal has been outstanding in the Spanish capital. Despite being a great addition to Real Madrid, having helped them win three La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles, and five Champions Leagues, his best years are now behind him.
