Real Madrid’s midfield is already a priority for Carlo Ancelotti and the club is eyeing Dortmund’s Bellingham for a while. In recent times, the manager has begun benching Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for the youngsters. This clearly signals the beginning of the transition that the fans dreaded.
The transfer of the baton to the next generation calls for a new advanced midfielder. An immediate transfer is necessary to boost Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde in the midfield. Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham is the best candidate to fill that position.
Can Real Madrid sign Jude Bellingham?
According to MARCA, Santiago Bernabeu’s offices are desperate about Jude Bellingham’s transfer. Valdebebas’ staff now believes he is more than likely to be in the squad this summer.
In recent months, Real Madrid is constantly keeping contact with Bellingham’s agent. However, Borussia Dortmund remains the only obstacle to the agreement with the player. Since negotiations with Bellingham, himself are quite advanced.
The German side’s economic demands initially led Real Madrid not to go for the youngster. However, It was the performance of Bellingham in the Qatar World Cup that changed that opinion. As a result, Florentino Perez is desperate to obtain English internationally. Although Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City cannot be ruled out, Bellingham’s heart is in Madrid. According to rumors, the fee for signing him is around €150 million.
Bellingham scored four goals and provided three assists in 16 Bundesliga appearances so far this season. Every ninety minutes, he creates an average of 1.1 key passes and creates four big chances.
Taking over from Luka Modric would be a huge hurdle for Bellingham at Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Real Madrid offices are buzzing with optimism, so it remains to be seen if they can sign him.
