Former Liverpool and England defender Glen Johnson has tipped Reece James to be a “Perfect” player for Real Madrid.
It comes amid links with Los Blancos and the Chelsea right-back.
Speaking to GGRecon, he said: “He would absolutely be a perfect long-term replacement for Dani Carvajal, but I can’t imagine that Chelsea would let him go and I doubt that Reece would want to leave the club anyway. But yes, if Real Madrid could land him then he would be a fantastic long-term replacement.”
