Disappointed by Dani Carvajal‘s recent performances, the directors of Real Madrid would like to secure the services of Chelsea‘s Reece James.
Defeated by Barcelona before the international break, the Madrid club has probably said goodbye to their last hope of being crowned champions of Spain. The directors of Real Madrid are not satisfied with the results obtained by Carlo Ancelotti‘s players this season. The Merengues would like to strengthen their team during the summer transfer window, with one of their priorities being to strengthen their defensive line.
For several weeks now, some Real Madrid executives have reportedly criticized the performances and output of Dani Carvajal. The Spanish international has been the subject of many criticisms, especially for his performance during the defeat in the Clasico. Therefore, the Merengues are reportedly considering recruiting a new right-back this summer to compete with Dani Carvajal.
According to the Spanish media outlet AS, Real Madrid‘s objective is to recruit English international Reece James. The Chelsea defender is reportedly a unanimous choice within the Casa Blanca. He is considered the best right-back in the Premier League and has now become a key player for Chelsea. Reece James is a versatile full-back, strong in duels, and possesses very good technical skills. Moreover, despite his young age, the English international has already won several major titles.

Real Madrid would like to take advantage of Chelsea‘s financial situation to finalize the transfer of Reece James. This summer, the Blues will have to sell several players to avoid a Financial Fair Play sanction.
At the same time, the Merengues believe that at 23 years old, Reece James has the potential to become the best player in the world in his position. The English international would be the number one choice to strengthen their defensive line this summer. However, if this deal falls through, Real Madrid has reportedly also identified Benjamin Pavard, Joao Cancelo, and Juan Foyth as potential alternatives.
