Many elite teams in Europe, including Real Madrid, are vying for the services of Jude Bellingham in the transfer market
The midfield sensation for Borussia Dortmund has developed into one of the finest young players in the league over the past couple of seasons and appears set for a significant transfer this summer. The 19-year-old English star is up for grabs, and teams like Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea are all interested.
For their part, Real Madrid has been pursuing Bellingham for a while, but recent reports have indicated that they are stalling due to the midfielder’s €150 million asking price, which could eliminate them from the running. However, a recent report from Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato claims that Real Madrid are stepping up their pursuit of Bellingham from Dortmund in the summer.
According to the story, Bellingham’s father and Juni Calafat, head of recruitment for Los Blancos, met earlier today in a hotel in London to talk about the transfer and present the club’s project to the teenager’s entourage.
After the aforementioned outlet claimed that Luka Modric’s destiny appeared to lie outside of the Santiago Bernabeu, this development occurred. Real Madrid will need to search for a new midfielder because Toni Kroos and Dani Ceballos’ futures are also up in the air. Bellingham is the main target.
To beat rivals like Liverpool and Manchester City in the battle for the 19-year-old, they have now gone on the attack in their pursuit of the former Birmingham City starlet. It will be fascinating to see if the meeting between Calafat and the player’s father results in the desired outcome for the current European and Spanish champions.
