Real Madrid are very close to signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. Personal terms are almost agreed between the club and the player.
Real Madrid are reportedly close to completing a deal to sign rising English star Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. According to Fabrizio Romano, ‘personal terms are almost agreed’ between the club and the player. The negotiations are entering their final stages. After practically a whole season in which the young player was rumored to be linked with several teams such as Manchester City, Bayern, or Liverpool; finally, it will be ‘Los Blancos’ who will land him. A few days ago ‘AS’ confirmed that the player had decided to join Real Madrid as his dream was to play for a historic team. Moreover, according to this source, Madrid would not consider making an offer higher than 120 million.
Liverpool seemed to be one of the strong candidates to sign the Dortmund player but a few weeks ago the Reds coach Klopp himself confirmed that the English club would not be able to pay 100 million or more for the midfielder. In addition, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that there will be a new meeting to finalize the agreement between the two clubs. In this way, the ‘Merengues’ would be building one of the best midfields in world football and one that will last for many years to come due to its youth. Bellingham would be added to the already established Camavinga, Valverde, and Tchouameni.
In addition, these youngsters will have the experience of Toni Kroos, who is said to have already signed his contract, and Luka Modric, who is likely to remain at Madrid next season as well. The former Birmingham City player has become a star for the German club, leading the club in the race for the Bundesliga title against Bayern Munich this season. The Englishman has made 44 appearances for his club this season, 44 of them starts. He has also registered a total of 11 goals and 6 assists, incredible figures considering his position.
Real Madrid’s midfield has been one of their weakest areas in recent years. The addition of Bellingham would be a huge boost to their midfield and would give them a player who can control the game from the center of the pitch. The youngster is known for his technical ability, vision, and passing range. He is also a hard worker and has a great attitude on and off the pitch.
Bellingham’s arrival at Real Madrid would also be a huge statement of intent from the Spanish giants. They have been rebuilding their squad over the past few seasons and have already signed some of the best young players in Europe such as Camavinga and Valverde. The addition of Bellingham would further strengthen their squad and make them one of the favorites to win the Champions League next season.
In conclusion, Real Madrid’s pursuit of Jude Bellingham is a clear indication that they are looking to build a team for the future. The addition of Bellingham would be a huge boost to their midfield and would give them a player who can control the game from the center of the pitch. It remains to be seen whether they will be able to complete the deal but if they do, it will be one of the biggest transfers in recent years.
