According to a recent, exclusive story on CaughtOffside, Reece James and Chelsea are in negotiations about a new deal.
A new five-year contract with a “substantial wage increase” has allegedly been offered, and negotiations are currently taking place.
It comes as no real surprise, and in fact, considering that it is Chelsea’s logical next move, it is one of those accusations that can be made very simply.
In the end, the club discovered that its homegrown talent, like James and Mason Mount, are their finest players after spending large sums of money on recruiting new players to enormous contracts.
Given the general increase in pay, they are now among the lowest paid, thus it’s critical to lock them into new contracts as soon as possible.
The transfer rumors around James haven’t bothered us too much, but if he doesn’t sign within the next six months, we will start to worry.
