Real Madrid, even though they’re a point away from winning the league, and in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, still need some players in multiple positions so that they’re able to compete properly and consistently for years to come.
The positions that scream of change the most are the full-backs, and the CDM. They needed a CB too, but Real Madrid have already signed a centre-back in Antonio Rudiger, who got the Here We Go from Fabrizio Romano not too long ago.
We’ve already talked about how they need to sign Aurelien Tchouameni as soon as possible, so we won’t get into that. But they do have a right-back in mind, per report.
According to Goal, Real are really interested in signing Reece James, and they have made an early approach to Chelsea regarding his signing.
Reece James is Real Madrid’s dream target to become Dani Carvajal’s successor
According to the report, Real are one of the many clubs that have approached Chelsea to sign the English full-back. However, their plan would be to potentially sign the full-back in 2023, not this year.
The club realises how good Reece James is, even more so after his excellent performance at the Bernabeu in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, so for the club to pay attention to his contract situation at Chelsea is very important.
It’s obvious that he won’t be cheap, because James’ contract would expire two years after Real Madrid are planning on making the move for him, so we should expect him to go for a very hefty price.
I think it’ll be worth it, though. Reece James is already one of the best full-backs in the world at the tender age of 22.

It’s a given that he will get better with age, but it’ll be really important for Real to complete his signing because he provides a solution to a problem that has existed for more than two years, in a way that not many others can. His two-way presence would be really, really useful and the potential of him teeing up with Mbappe just makes it all better.
