Jude Bellingham is back among the headlines in Spain after his decision to choose Real Madrid over the other top options on his table late in April. The English youngster’s personal support makes the process easier for the Merengues, but it is safe to say that it is far from done.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, Jude Bellingham is currently closer than ever to signing for the Galacticos. He is thrilled by the project under construction in Madrid and is excited to sign for the record Champions League winners.

Though there is positive work and contact with the player, however, Real Madrid are yet to negotiate with Borussia Dortmund over an agreement. Needless to say, talks between the two clubs are equally, if not more important, than talks with the midfielder himself.

Los Blancos wish to be meticulous and cautious with their steps towards signing Bellingham. The added precaution comes in light of the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga last season, where everything fell apart in the n-th moment for the Galacticos.

As a result, there will be no leaks to the media this time around, and Bellingham’s signing will not be taken for granted. The administration will not rest until the paperwork is signed and sealed.

The youngster is said to have chosen Real Madrid despite being offered a higher package by Manchester City, and Pep Guardiola’s side will likely return with an even larger offer. That said, the primary focus for the club must be to seal talks with Dortmund at the earliest.

Reports suggest that the prodigy will sign with Carlo Ancelotti’s men until the summer of 2029. Further, a possible transfer fee of €100 to €120 million has been mentioned.

Given that the Germans’ demand is a rung higher, it remains to be seen if any obstacles arise in the negotiations between the clubs.

Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.

Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.

As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.

The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.

With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.

The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.

The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.
