Chelsea fans troll Real Madrid by asking ‘haven’t you learned from Eden Hazard?’ amid Reece James transfer talk
CHELSEA fans have trolled Real Madrid amid rumors they want to sign Reece James.
The LaLiga side supposedly want to sign both Jude Bellingham and the Blues defender this summer.
Outlet AS report that the two England stars are their top two transfer targets.
Chelsea have a history of losing players to Real Madrid, with the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Antonio Rudiger and Eden Hazard all switching West London for the Spanish capital.
Hazard made the move in 2019 for a fee of £88million and has struggled with persistent injuries since.
The Belgian has only played 73 times for the club, scoring just seven goals.
James has had similar regular injury troubles, missing 18 Chelsea matches this season and the World Cup.
It has led to fans joking that Real Madrid risk making the same mistake by signing an injury prone Premier League star.
One supporter said: “Madrid wants a taste of James’ injury record. I thought they’ve learned from Hazard.”
Another reacted: “Reece James would play like two games, get injured and then not be seen again until 2028.”

A third added: “Hazard all over again.”
James penned a new deal at Stamford Bridge in September, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2028.
The Blues are supposedly ready to offload a number of players at the end of the season to trim a bloated squad, yet the 23-year-old is not one up for sale.
