Jude Bellingham has risen to become one of the most promising young midfielders in the world since his move to Borussia Dortmund in 2020. Ane Real Madrid feels confident that they can lure the player to Santiago Bernabeu next summer.
At only 18, Jude Bellingham has already made 90 appearances for Borussia Dortmund which includes 10 goals and 19 assists. Not the mention that the player operates mainly as a pivot or central-defensive midfielder. Real Madrid believes that Bellingham could become their perfect replacement for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in the future.
Real Madrid face stiff competition from English clubs for Jude Bellingham
The quality at which Jude Bellingham has been operating in the last few season has not gone unnoticed by any major club in Europe. Especially in England with Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all making the 18-year-old their priority.
Liverpool is reportedly favourites to land the 18-year-old midfielder who replace their captain, Jordan Henderson. However, the player won’t come cheap and clubs like Manchester United can outbid them. United tried to sign Bellingham ahead of Dortmund back in 2019 but failed.
Borussia Dortmund is keen to keep Bellingham for a long time at the Signal Iduna Park. Bellingham already has a contract until 2025 with the German club. Hence, his transfer fee could easily be upwards of €100 million.
While the English club believe they can land the English international who already featured 12 times for the 3 lions, Real Madrid have the galacticos pull as well that they could use to turn the tide.
As of now, Jude Bellingham is expected to stay in Germany for the next season. His transfer saga will begin next season when clubs scramble for the youngster’s services.
