A handful of Chelsea supporters on social media adored the recent incident involving Reece James and Jude Bellingham in England training.

James was caught by the Three Lions social media team whipping a delightful shot into the top corner during a shooting drill.

Whilst his teammates oohed and aahed, Bellingham came up to congratulate the Blues defender himself.

“You did better than I thought,” cheekily remarked the Borussia Dortmund whizz kid whilst shaking James’ hand.  

This short, but sweet moment was enough to send Chelsea fans into a mini-emotional meltdown.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Blues followers felt this exchange between James and Bellingham more than usual because of the wider story surrounding Dortmund’s young midfielder.

According to Goal, Chelsea have identified the 18-year-old as a long-term transfer target.


Unfortunately, they may have to wait a while to move for the teenager, after he recently signed a contract extension with BVB.

However, it hasn’t stopped the Stamford Bridge faithful from getting excited about the possible prospect of Bellingham pulling on a blue jersey.

Not to mention lining up alongside James for club and country.

The pair have clearly grown extremely close during the days with England, a partnership that would only flourish further if they played together domestically.

James admitted he looked after Bellingham, whilst the Dortmund dynamo said the Blues full-back was one of the best in Europe.
