Real Madrid apparently has a good chance of signing BVB star Jude Bellingham. This reports the mark. While the exact date is still open, the Spanish club has already set the course for a transfer in the past and therefore sees itself as a favorite.
As early as 2023, Bellingham is the big goal of those responsible for Real, who have been following its development very closely since its arrival in Germany in 2020. The 19-year-old was asked not to extend his contract with BVB, which runs until 2025, nor to respond to the numerous offers from other clubs, which came in particular from the top teams in the Premier League – first and foremost Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC.
The fee called for Bellingham – The Athletic recently named a sum of up to 150 million euros, according to mark is far too high – was not manageable last summer because a budget had to be kept free for Kylian Mbappé’s planned commitment. As is well known, nothing came of it, instead of Bellingham came the comparatively “cheap” Aurelién Tchouaméni from AS Monaco for around 80 million euros.
As well as Tchouaméni, Real have five other central midfielders available in Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga and Fede Valverde, with the top three’s contracts expiring. It is not unlikely that the veterans Kroos and Modric will extend again, but a changing of the guard is required in the medium term. “His behavior invites you to think that he wants to play for Real Madrid,” she said mark. The good relationship between BVB and the Madrilenians, which did not suffer from Erling Haaland’s move to Manchester City, is helpful. Everyone knows what other people want.
Bellingham moved from Birmingham City to Dortmund for 25 million two years ago and soon became a top performer. In 100 games he has 13 goals and 18 assists. He is also a central component in the national team, has already played 15 games and has always been a seed.
