Jude Bellingham is on the verge of joining Real Madrid this summer

Jude Bellingham becomes

Liverpool decided against pursuing the signing of Jude Bellingham due to the high price tag associated with the player. However, recent reports suggest that Bellingham might be joining Real Madrid for a lower fee than initially anticipated. Last month, Liverpool had deemed the potential deal for the midfielder as financially unviable.

The initial reported fee for Jude Bellingham’s transfer was approximately £115 million. This was further supplemented with additional add-ons, agent fees, and a high salary. After Liverpool withdrew from the race, Bellingham became the subject of a battle between Manchester City and Real Madrid for his signature.

According to reports, Jude Bellingham is to join Real Madrid following the conclusion of the Bundesliga season. Sources suggest that the initial transfer fee would be €100 million, equivalent to around £87 million. This base fee could potentially increase further through performance and appearance-related clauses.

Reports suggest that Jude Bellingham had been potentially receiving more lucrative financial offers, possibly from Manchester City. However, his priority has always been to play for Real Madrid. Notably, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano indicated that the agreement between Bellingham and Real Madrid is in its final stages. With an upfront fee of €100 million being there.

What did Liverpool plan to make Jude Bellingham join them?

According to Fabrizio Romano, Jude Bellingham’s salary at Real Madrid is to increase progressively each season. The deal includes performance-based incentives and is to run until 2029. Liverpool’s failure to secure Champions League qualification impacted their pursuit of the 19-year-old. However, the overall cost of the package has not been disclosed at this time.

In terms of finances, the potential deal for Jude Bellingham would not appear to be excessively costly for Liverpool. The club showed willingness to commit a similar amount, up to €100 million, to secure the signing of Darwin Nunez in the previous summer. Therefore, on a comparative basis, the financial aspect of the Bellingham deal may not be a significant obstacle for Liverpool.

Liverpool would have to surpass their transfer record to sign Bellingham. However, the reported fee of £87 million is notably lower than the previously mentioned £115 million. Despite this, it appears that Bellingham is on the verge of joining Real Madrid after completing his third season with Borussia Dortmund, where he still has a chance of winning the title.

The outcome of Dortmund’s final match against Mainz will determine whether they win the Bundesliga title. However, any official updates regarding Bellingham’s future will not be there until next week or later. Despite the reported figures for his transfer fee appearing to fit within Liverpool’s budget, there doesn’t seem to be any indication of a revived pursuit from the club at this time.
