Chelsea could be forced into selling prized-asset Reece James in the summer transfer window, with Real Madrid keeping a close watch on the developing situation at Stamford Bridge. 

It is expected Chelsea will need to sell a host of players by June 30 in order to balance the books, following their spending of more than £600 million over the past two transfer windows, and James could yield the club some vital funds for compliance with UEFA's financial fair play (FFP) regulations as well as the Premier League's profit and sustainability rules.
