Real Madrid have reportedly decided not to make any significant signings for their first team during the upcoming summer transfer window. This decision comes despite the club’s prolonged interest in acquiring top talents such as Jude Bellingham and Kylian Mbappe.
Jude Bellingham is the midfielder from Borussia Dortmund. He gained attention from many of Europe’s top clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United. However, Real Madrid was reportedly the front-runner in the race to sign the 17-year-old.
Real Madrid reportedly held a transfer meeting with Mark Bellingham, the father of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, in London earlier this month. The meeting was from Juni Calafat, director of international football for Real Madrid, ahead of Dortmund’s Champions League match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Madrid has been linked with a move for the 18-year-old midfielder. He also attracted interest from other top European clubs such as Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.
Will Real Madrid purchase Bellingham and Mbappe?
Real Madrid have reportedly decided not to make major first-team signings this summer. This includes Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, despite their previous interest in him. A meeting between Madrid’s director of international football and Bellingham’s father was there earlier this month. But the club is not keen on investing heavily in their squad this summer. This decision may allow Bellingham to secure a move to the Premier League. While Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe is likely to remain with his current team.
Mbappe had previously been non-committal about his future at PSG. But in November he stated that his focus was on winning a second World Cup with France. Beyond that, he was unsure. Hence Real Madrid fans might not get to see him at Bernabeu in the upcoming future.
Mbappe’s future has been the subject of intense speculation for several years now. Many top clubs across Europe expressed an interest in the Frenchman. However, the striker signed a new three-year contract with PSG last May, although the final year of the deal is an optional renewal on his part. Despite entering the final 12 months of the provisional terms of his current deal, Mbappe is unlikely to push for a move this summer.
