Real Madrid are in the home straight in finalizing the transfer of Jude Bellingham with an agreement already in place with the 19-year-old. The Spanish side have offered 100 million euro to Dortmund for his services with the German side holding out for 150 million. It’s expected that a deal will eventually be hammered out by both sides with the England international set to be the Santiago Bernabeu outfit’s second signing for the 2023/24 season after resigning full back Fran García who returns after a spell with Rayo Vallecano.

The Stourbridge born player will rejuvenate the club’s midfield and compliment both Tchouameni and Camavinga as the club plans the transition from long standing central players Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. The club are now concerned by striking options as rumours grow that Karim Benzema may be lured to the Saudi Pro League. Espanyol’s Joselu has been suggested as a potential replacement for the French forward following the Barcelona based club’s relegation to the second tier last weekend.

Jude Bellingham, who turns 20 on 29 June, is a player that has been on Real Madrid’s radar from some time now with his creativity and ability to open games being highly regarded. Bellingham has also reportedly turned down more lucrative offers from the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
