Chelsea increasingly open to Reece James sale
Chelsea are increasingly open to parting ways with defender Reece James, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
The Englishman is a key player in the Blues' ranks, but he has been struggling with hamstring injuries in recent times.
This has led to frustration among the fans and it appears the hierarchy are also growing impatient over his situation.
The Blues are not looking to sell their captain at the moment, but the scenario could change at the end of the season.
If James can't improve on his injury record, the club could be open to listening to offers for him next summer.
Real Madrid are known to be admirers of the Blues graduate, and they could make a genuine approach for him.
Los Blancos most recently signed Antonio Rudiger from the Blues. The German joined the club on a free transfer.
James is currently nursing a hamstring issue, but he is anticipated to return at some point in the next couple of weeks.
