According to 90min journalist Graeme Bailey, Barcelona is interested in defender duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James. Besides, Real Madrid also keeps an eye on Alexander-Arnold and James.
Both played impressively as right-backs for both the club and national team. Alexander-Arnold plays a pivotal role at Liverpool, while James becomes Chelsea captain in the 2023/2024 season.
This summer, Barcelona recruited Joao Cancelo on loan from Man City. The contract does not include a buyout clause. Therefore, the possibility of the Nou Camp team signing a new right-back cannot be ruled out.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid has long had its eye on James. Los Blancos has great appeal to many world football stars. The Spanish team sees James as a useful addition to the right-back position at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Both Barcelona and Real Madrid have to spend large sums of money if they want to own one of the two stars Alexander-Arnold and James. However, this scenario is unlikely to happen in the near future.
