I can only see him playing in our midfield in our current set up, but I'm certainly not against a playmaker at a reasonable price.

I think he could be an incredibly dangerous player, has great vision and an amazing shot. He would excel in a free role with hazard behind/around a big striker like Lukaku. Would add a lot to our dead ball threat as well. Problem is always price and dealing with Madrid. I would celebrate his arrival but I find it unlikely it happens.

I think If we signed him it would be quality 70mill for a game changer is a bargain imo

I can't see it personally I'd love James here but it won't happen if we had sold Pedro or willian then maybe we still have cesc and matic as Well

That's a good point maybe someone should post a list on credible sources. Seems anyone with a Twitter account can post any old bullshit.

From a quote in reddit:

No one, MARCA and AS are Real Madrid press. Mundo Deportivo and Sport are Barcelona press. This 4 newspapers are shit when you are looking for a "reliable newspaper". There's some good journalist like Julio Maldonado but that's all.

I know he is a divisive player, but I think he can really be special. He could be Juan Mata 2.0. He gives us skills we currently do not have and gives us more danger going forward. He can ping them in from distance and is a special passer of the ball. His work rate needs to be improved but that is Conte's specialty. Plus having Kante/Bakayoko behind really opens up the possibility of playing with James/Hazard/Lukaku which is truly frightening for an opponent. We could play a 352 with James as the highest midfielder, A 343 with James/Hazard drifting all over the field behind Lukaku or a 4231 with James in the #10. 

Teams wouldn't be able to Man Mark hazard with James on the field and with Hazard/James behind Lukaku he is going to have a field day up front. Really interesting situation IF its true
