‘As a replacement’: Journalist reckons Man City will sign 24-year-old PL star to replace their £50m player.



“As a replacement,” according to one journalist, Manchester City will acquire a 24-year-old Premier League star for £50 million.In eighteen months, Manchester City may reportedly acquire Reece James as a long-term replacement for Kyle Walker.

As the City right-back approaches his 34th birthday in May, he is not getting any younger; therefore, journalist Martin Lipton, speaking to Last Word On Spurs (via YouTube), believes the club may discover a successor to his throne sooner rather than later.Reece James has a new contract with Chelsea that runs until 2028; he endorsed the agreement in September 2022.


In eighteen months, Manchester City will replace Kyle Walker with Reece James, according to a journalist.

As his current contract with Manchester City, which is valued at £50 million (Guardian), is scheduled to conclude in 2026, the likelihood that he can produce two more outstanding seasons at the highest level is uncertain.


Walker, who made his Premier League debut for Tottenham Hotspur in 2009, has likely reached the end of his days, even before his contract at the Etihad Stadium expires, after nearly a decade and a half of professional football at the highest level.


Martin Lipton believes that in eighteen months, Chelsea may attempt to sell Reece James, who has the potential to succeed Kyle Walker at Manchester City.”It is not inconceivable that Chelsea would acquire a new player the following week if the only way to make those numbers work is by selling [Conor] Gallagher.” It is more probable during the summer months.


“I believe that both Reid James and Kyle Walker will have been sold by Chelsea within the next eighteen months, with James joining Manchester City in place of Walker.” “If the new owners can secure £80 million for James, they will, as they have never witnessed him perform well.” he told Last Word On Spurs.


The Sky Blues would be taking a risk by acquiring Reece James.

Despite the fact that Reece James is an exceptional right-back and a possible replacement for Kyle Walker, we believe it would be risky for Manchester City to contract him.Indeed, injuries have hampered James’s tenure thus far at Stamford Bridge.


The Champions League champion has started just five Premier League games for Chelsea this season.


Even during the 2022–2023 season, the Englishman appeared in just 14 league starts. Consequently, unless City anticipates a significant improvement in James’ availability prior to their intention to pursue his signature, procuring his services could potentially entail an excessive level of risk.
