EPL: Agbonlahor speaks on Real Madrid signing Chelsea’s best right-back

Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor, has said that Real Madrid would need to tempt Chelsea with a very huge offer for the latter to consider selling their best right-back Reece James to the Spanish La Liga champions.

James has been linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Despite his injury issues this season, the England international has made over 140 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 11 goals and providing 20 assists.

But Agbonlahor believes Real Madrid would have to make a good offer to sign James from the Blues.

“Of course. James, for me, is the best right-back around – bar Kyle Walker,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.

“His injuries this season have been unfortunate and hopefully, he can get past that. He is quick, he is good on the ball, he can take set pieces, his positioning is always spot-on, he can play at centre-back – he ticks every box. It is a no-brainer for Real Madrid.

“But they would have to get their chequebook out, and it would have to be one hell of an offer.

“Chelsea can’t afford to lose him. Real Madrid is that one club where you think – ‘wow, I have got to go’. But they would have to make an offer that is too good to turn down.”
