This summer is set to be crowded for Real Madrid as the Spanish giants need to send several players to bring some very valuable assets into the world of football.
The La Liga side will have the likes of Gareth Bale and Isco written off before the start of next season, and the Madridista club will also be hoping to get some cash from Eden Hazard, should the Belgian find a new home in the summer.
This will then open the proverbial door to go after Kylian Mbappe; Who is the most sought-after player in world football right now, but Carlo Ancelotti also has another coveted target on his list, that of Chelsea’s Reece James.
This is according to daily mirrorJames, who reported that James’ performance in the two legs of the Champions League quarter-final match with Real Madrid has been closely scrutinized by Ancelotti’s scouting division and that Real have now seen the England right-back at least nine times this season.
As previously mentioned, Ancelotti is looking to reshape his squad at the Bernabeu this summer, by getting rid of players the club does not need and replacing them with more players that could move Real Madrid forward.
As for the right-back, the Italian technical staff believe James could be the man they are looking for.
James is an integral part of Thomas Tuchel’s squad and the Chelsea boss will have the final say on whether James is ready to go or not.
The London side still haven’t found a new owner and it looks like Real are trying to take advantage of this uncertainty and pounce on one of Blue’s best players.
The right-back has six goals and seven assists this season and is looking to add the FA Cup medal to his squad between now and the end of the season.
