When the transfer market opens in the middle of the year, Jude Bellingham is likely to grab attention. For example, Real Madrid is prepared to spend a significant amount of money to get the 19-year-old English midfielder for the upcoming season.
But, Borussia Dortmund will not make it easier for him to leave. Although the board is eager for the young midfielder to extend his contract with the club for a number of more years, the German team is aiming to fetch more than 100 million euros for its star player.
For their part, the “Merengues” are aware that they will need to win a crucial conflict to win Bellingham’s transfer. For the upcoming season, prestigious teams like Liverpool and Manchester City, for instance, are also interested in his services.
As reported by “Cadena SER” on Thursday, the board led by Florentino Pérez decided to address the situation after becoming aware of it. In the last few hours, the two parties have reached a preliminary agreement.
Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have decided not to approach the player or demand a response until the German team has secured their spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season, despite interest from Premier League clubs.
With the help of this agreement, the white team will provide the German team with a breath of fresh air in order to avoid complicating negotiations and, at the same time, to have a specific priority when it comes to sitting down to discuss the midfielder’s services in the near future.
Borussia Dortmund is in the lead in the Bundesliga, and the sports management issued a warning that the player must be completely focused on the goals of the German club during the remainder of the campaign. Because of this, the Madrid team granted the request and decided to refrain from applying any pressure to the player.
