Chelsea prioritising new contract for Reece James

Chelsea are reportedly desperate to sign Reece James to a new contract amid suggestions that Real Madrid are keen to bring the right-back to Bernabeu in the summer of 2023.

The 22-year-old has been a vital player for the Blues during the 2021-22 campaign, making 33 appearances in all competitions, contributing six goals and seven assists in the process.

James only signed a contract extension with the capital giants in January 2020, with his current agreement at Stamford Bridge set to run until June 2025.

However, according to 90min, Chelsea are prioritising a new deal for the England international, as they fear that he could be tempted by a move elsewhere.

The Blues are currently unable to offer James a new contract due to their off-the-field issues, but they will reportedly begin discussions once a new owner is in place.
