Real Madrid has started the season with a positive attitude
Positive outcomes—two victories in two games—have been achieved, and players all over the field have displayed admirable effort. Los Blancos have not changed their hiring practises, albeit the squad has shown progress in a number of areas, and they have identified jobs that need to be filled right away. Long-term reinforcements on the right cannot be ruled out because the right-back position has been under investigation.
Reece James, the great forward for Chelsea, is the target that Real Madrid has in mind, said Fichajes. James’ skills have caught the attention of the Merengues. The Englishman has distinguished himself on the pitch by displaying exceptional maturity, making him one of the Premier League’s most promising right-backs.
While Dani Carvajal has had a solid start to the season, as he approaches the end of his career, his declining physicality and age have contributed to changes in form over time. According to the article, despite his history of ailments, James has been a top priority for Fiorentino Perez and Carlo Ancelotti, who want to sign him to a contract with the Merengues until the 2024 season.
As Carvajal is practically nearing the end of his career, the 23-year-old is seen as the best alternative. It won’t be easy, though, to get one of Chelsea’s most iconic players. The right-back, whose market worth is €65 million, is under contract through 2026. He is regarded as one of the main players at Stamford Bridge, and this season, club captaincy was given to him by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Therefore, Real Madrid will find it difficult to sign the England international thanks to Chelsea, and any such deal would probably result in a high transfer fee. However, given the rumours that Kylian Mbappe will likely join Real Madrid for free in 2019, it is possible that the Royal Whites will pay a significant price for James the following summer.
