Report: Manchester City Target Reece James To Sign New Chelsea Deal


Manchester City have been dealt a blow with Chelsea star Reece James set to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge following links with a move away this summer.

With Kyle Walker coming into the twilight of his career, Manchester City are starting to identify possible replacements for the right-back. Reece James makes the most sense.

City have previously been linked with a move for the right-back, although the player himself dampened the rumours during the summer.

The English right-back is everything Pep Guardiola looks for in a full-back, but according to The Athletic, the England right-back is set to sign a new deal having been linked with a move this summer.

An announcement has not yet been made, but after a strong start to the season, a place in the England squad for the Qatar World Cup looks likely and a long-term role at his boyhood club looks set to be secured in the coming days.

As well as Manchester City’s interest, Real Madrid have the player on a shortlist for the future. Chelsea will now be in pole position to keep the player, who is very unlikely to ever leave the club now with this long-term deal.
