Reece James is someone who has been linked with a potential move to Real Madrid in recent times, even though the brilliant English right-back did end up agreeing a long-term contract extension with Chelsea, which should keep him at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.

James has come through the Chelsea youth ranks and gone on to establish himself as one of the best full-backs on the planet already. If anybody has any doubts about his quality, they should see his masterclass in the Champions League final against Manchester City.

James is someone who has every attribute required to be one of the best players of his generation. His only problem till now have been his continuous struggles with injuries.

James has faced some of the best players in the world during his time in a Chelsea shirt, and he has named Vinicius Jr alongside Rafael Leao and Sadio Mane as the hardest opponents that he has had to face till now, during a Q&A session on Twitter.

Chelsea and Real Madrid have been involved in a couple of brilliant Champions League ties in recent years, with each club winning one each, and going on to lift the cup with the big ears in the same season.

Leao is also someone who Real Madrid have been linked with in recent times after his brilliant performances with AC Milan. The Portuguese forward/winger seems like another player who can go on to be a big name in the game for years to come.

And we all know about the quality that Mane possesses. He was a key part of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side, who have not looked the same without him since he left in order to join Bayern Munich in the summer.
