Real Madrid are in the front seat to sign Jude Bellingham


In the 2023 transfer market for Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid appears to be in the driver’s seat.

The young player’s outstanding performance at the FIFA World Cup only increased Los Blancos’ desire to sign him, and as of last week, Real Madrid was once again in the lead to sign him.

According to sources from Cadena SER, formal negotiations over a potential summer move for Bellingham will start between the European Champions and Borrusia Dortmund the following week.

The price tag will ultimately be the only topic of discussion because the player’s quality cannot be disputed. According to reports, the Bundesliga club has set a price of €150 million on their prodigy, but Madrid would be hesitant to match such a high figure.

The 19-year-old would receive a five-year contract for €12 million per season from Los Blancos in addition to a reported €100 million bid for him.

If the young player moves to Spain, he would join Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde in a world-class midfield trio. Madrid could thus brag of having the best midfield in the world for at least the ensuing ten years with Eduardo Camavinga serving as the department’s backup player.

The teenager has three goals and two assists in 15 league games this season for Dortmund. In the most recent World Cup, he contributed one goal and one assist for England. This season alone in the UEFA Champions League, he has contributed to five goals.

If Bellingham cannot be signed by Real Madrid, Enzo Fernandez offers a suitable backup option. At the World Cup in Qatar, the Argentine was crowned Player of the Tournament, and his dependability could lead to a sensational transfer to the Bernabeu.
