Chelsea have got off to an absolutely awful start in the Premier League this season. They’re following the same path they did last season but it’s a surprise this time round given the recruitment of Mauricio Pochettino and all their new signings.

Still, with Poch at the helm, things can only improve. How quickly they can improve is a different story but more than likely, they’re in a better position with Poch in charge than anyone else.

The Argentine manager has made some significant changes and given second chances to some players who were on the fringe of first-team football before he arrived. One of the more notable changes he made was to make Reece James captain.

This was a controversial short for some fans since James has a track record of being on the treatment table more often than he’s on the pitch. But there’s no denying that even despite his injury record, he’s the best player that Chelsea have available to them. He’s one of the best full backs in the world and certainly the best in the Premier League. If only he could improve his fitness and recovery, he would be the best in the world.

Chelsea at risk of losing Reece James to Bayern Munich or Real Madrid

His talent doesn’t go unnoticed either. Since becoming the captain at Chelsea, he’s received big interest from some significant European teams. According to Fichajes, Bayern Munich aim to compete with Real Madrid to sign Reece James.

From Chelsea’s perspective, they won’t want to sell James. He is their most important player when he’s fit and, of course, their captain. Mauricio Pochettino has plans to build an English core at Chelsea and James is certainly an important figurehead in that. However, there are some offers which are just impossible to refuse, so we’ll see if either club can table an astronomical offer.

Do you think Chelsea will sell Reece James?
