Amidst Real Madrid’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, Juventus frontman Dusan Vlahovic has emerged as a potential target for the Los Blancos.

However, if a report from Romeo Agresti (via Madrid Xtra) is to be believed, the former Fiorentina centre-forward’s destination will likely be Chelsea and not Santiago Bernabeu.

The strikers’ domino

It is understood that Real Madrid are prepared to lay down a contingency if they fail to sign Mbappe this season, and Vlahovic happens to be on their agenda.

It must be noted that 23-year-old Vlahovic is a part of the strikers’ domino which also involves a certain Romelu Lukaku. 

The Belgium international is back at Chelsea following his loan tenure with Inter Milan and although the Italians were expected to sign him permanently, they have decided not to for various reasons.

As a result, the likes of Juventus and Chelsea are said to be working on an agreement that could see Vlahovic moving to London and Lukaku to Turin.

As it turns out, reports emerged that Real Madrid are ready to raid the party by battling Chelsea for the 23-year-old.

Now, the team from the Spanish capital city has signed Joselu as a replacement for Karim Benzema, but Ancelotti is still asking for a top striker.

Now, the move looks ideal considering Vlahovic’s profile, but it appears that a move to Real Madrid is unlikely for the Serbian international, with the report claiming that Chelsea appears to be the 23-year-old likeliest destination.

Real Madrid are playing the waiting game in their pursuit of Mbappe and could act in the coming weeks, although it would not come as a surprise to see them sign him for free next year.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
