CHELSEA fans are all in agreement after watching Reece James defeat AC Milan star Rafael Leao for the second time in a week.
The Blues right-back produced a top-class player at Stamford Bridge and shone again in the second leg at the San Siro on Tuesday.
Until he had to be replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta shortly after an hour due to injury.
James injured his knee and limped away, sparking concerns he could be sidelined for the World Cup, which begins next month.
But even in the Champions League, James was excellent at keeping Chelsea transfer target Leao, 23, quiet.
And Blues fans are now all saying Leao should secure a move to Stamford Bridge after failing to defeat James.
One wrote on Twitter: “Rafael Leao if you can’t beat Reece James just go for it man go for it. It’s easy!”
Another said: “Leao should come to Chelsea just so he doesn’t have to face James again.”
And a third added: “If I were Leao I would move to Chelsea just so I wouldn’t have to play Reece James anymore.”
Leao was a summer transfer target for Chelsea when new owner Todd Boehly came in and splashed the cash.

AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini even confirmed that the Blues had made a verbal offer for the winger.
Boehly and co are expected to reignite their interest in Portuguese ace Leao when the transfer window reopens in January.
But reports suggest they could have a fight to secure his signature.
Paris Saint-Germain are now believed to have entered the race to sign Leao.
The French champions see him as the perfect replacement for Lionel Messi, who has been linked with an emotional return to Barcelona.
