The Chelsea Legend took his time to voice his opinion over the spreading rumor linking Reece James to a Chelsea exit
Chelsea are linked to a possible reunion with Eden Hazard but giving the circumstances at hand, it’s likely the deal may not happen if Real Madrid don’t change their stance.
Following multiple reports, it’s believed the Whites want Reece James in exchange for Hazard who has suffered greatly since joining them at Madrid.
With 8 injuries suffered since heading to Real Madrid, Hazard has become more of a liability than an asset to the club as no one knows when next his injury may strike again.
Reece James on his own end appears more interested in his future at Chelsea and hasn’t shown any sign of distractions despite the news linking him to a trip to Real Madrid.
“It’s not new thing for players to be rumored with such news. Am just happy to be here and be playing for the club,” James said of the rumor.
“My dream has always been to play for Chelsea and no one else, so the rumors don’t make sense to me cause am never leaving.
Didier Drogba has remained a big figure for the club and his opinions most times are considered at times as this.
Drogba stressed on the issue during an interview as he disclosed they are just mere rumors as it’s unreasonable for Madrid to make such a demand knowing Chelsea won’t entertain it.
“Who is saying all these things?” Drogba replied as he even looked shocked.
“The young kid, Reece is an amazing player that Chelsea would have been strongly after in the transfer market if he had not been in the team already.
“I am sure Real Madrid won’t even waste the time to think of this,” he continued as he laughed.
“It’s becoming clearer that Hazard may come back to the club, after all even I did return to the club after leaving at first. It’s for the love of the club.
“If he loves Chelsea he will return even without any swap deal, no one should say Real Madrid wants James in exchange, it’s a fat lie.”
