According to The Sun via Daily Mail, Spanish side Real Madrid are willing to offer £50million plus Eden Hazard for Chelsea right-back Reece James.

The position of right-back is said to be one of Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti’s biggest concerns and the Italian tactician is reportedly a huge admirer of James.

Real Madrid currently only have Dani Carvajal as a recognised right-back in their squad and Ancelotti is keen on strengthening that area of his team.

Real Madrid reportedly understand it will be difficult signing James from Chelsea as he ‘has it all’ at Chelsea but are still willing to try. 

James has enjoyed a stellar season as Chelsea sit third, netting five goals and providing six assists in 22 appearances as a right wing-back. 

Hazard has struggled at Real Madrid since he left Chelsea for the Spanish capital in 2019 and he has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge.
