Boehly has personally offered £150,000-a-week Chelsea offer to top-class Defender

A new contract to remain at Stamford Bridge has reportedly been offered to a Chelsea defender by new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.

Reece James certainly stood out with his levels for the club last season and truly impressed many in the media, despite the erratic performances of many Chelsea players last season.

However, there have been some astounding rumors in the media in recent weeks that he may decide to leave Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid and Man City both showing interest in a potential trade.

The footballer is now earning roughly £70,000 per week, but the Daily Mail claims that owner Boehly has taken decisive action to fix James’ “contractual predicament.”

One of the club’s top concerns is locking down the academy product to a new contract, and the England international has been offered an upgraded £150,000-a-week contract, which is double what he currently earns.

Key player James has been cloned by Reece James, according to Thomas Tuchel. “I would love to have two of Reece James, it would fix the problem, it’s like 50% towards wing-back and 45% towards the back three,” the German stated in April.

“It depends a little bit on how the opponent plays against us.

“Do we expect a lot of possession, how is their structure for their offensive transition.

“For this it can sometimes be helpful for Reece to play in the back three and be the first guy to cover in the transition and to not be involved in the attack.

“We have his speed and physicality in the protection of the opponents counter-attack.

“I’m a bit more into that his very best position is the wing-back position where he is perhaps even more decisive, more useful but it is more demanding.

“The next step is to be a regular player over 50, 55, 60 matches and from there we have to decide that those positions are filled with top quality with him.”
