Real Madrid make key decision in their pursuit of Chelsea’s Reece James

Chelsea captain and right-back Reece James is reportedly on Real Madrid’s wishlist but the Spanish giants have put his move on hold until 2025.

The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, has reportedly decided that he would not be signing any right-backs, including Chelsea captain Reece James, until 2025 after giving utility player Lucas Vasquez a new contract, according to the Spanish publication Defensa Central.

Los Blancos have been recently linked with a move for a right-back as they are looking for a long term replacement of Dani Carvajal.

However, their plans to sign James or Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold have been put on hold, as things stand at the moment.

The La Liga leaders are expected to go through big changes this summer with the potential arrival of PSG star Kylian Mbappe and young striker Endrick joining the club.

It has been reported that Los Blancos and Alphonso Davies, who will be in his last year of contract at the Allianz Arena in the summer, have reached an agreement on personal terms.

In the years ahead, Ancelotti will need to make a decision on the right-back position.
