Miguel Delaney, a reporter for The Independent. Has stated that Manchester City has had an interest in James for a long time.
Journalist Miguel Delaney claims something about City. City wants a new RB. They want Chelsea Rightback. Manchester City is interested in acquiring Reece James. From Premier League opponent Chelsea in his Reading the Game email in The Independent on November 10, 2023, at 1:32 p.m.
According to the well-known and renowned writer. James has long been viewed as a possible replacement for Kyle Walker by defending Premier League winners City.
Kyle Walker and City just agreed to a new deal in September 2023.
Within the City dressing room, Walker is a leader.
The right-back for England, nevertheless, is currently 33 years old.
James is a 23-year-old international player for England.
Injury Issue of Chelsea Rightback
Chelsea will probably have to put up with Kyle Walker’s physicality on Sunday, but they may also suffer if the England international decides to leave Manchester City, according to Delaney.
“Reece James has been targeted as his successor for a long time, and it’s clear that the European champions can provide such a player with more rapid opportunities to compete.
Walker considered it frequently over the last three summers as he continuously considered his options.
He’s one of those guys that simply keeps getting better, which is the problem.
James, though, is still having trouble recovering from frequent injuries.
Even though Reece James is only 23 years old and a very excellent right-back. I think Manchester City should investigate his injury history before attempting to sign the Chelsea player.
Under City boss Pep Guardiola, I think the 23-year-old, who earns £250,000 a week, may improve and add additional dimensions to his game.
James has, nonetheless, a history of injuries.
For City, that poses a possible risk.
