James’ Madrid links downplayed

Stories linking Chelsea full-back Reece James with a  link to Real Madrid have been downplayed.

The Spanish club are looking for a long-term replacement for Dani Carvajal, and have been tracking James for some time.

Nevertheless, sources close to the West London club insist that it would take a ridiculous amount of money to persuade them to part with him.

He signed a new contract with the club last season that ties him to Stamford Bridge until 2028, and he was made club captain by Mauricio Pochettino at the start of this season.

Unfortunately for him and the club he picked up a hamstring injury in the opening game of the season, and he has not played since.

There were hopes that he would be fit enough to play some part in their Premier League match with Bournemouth at the weekend, but given his recent injury history, he is being given longer to recover for fear of him suffering another setback.
