Over the past week, there have been multiple reports claiming that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham had decided to sign for Real Madrid in the summer.

The 19-year-old England international is Los Blancos’ priority transfer target for the summer, but they are facing competition from Premier League champions Manchester City.

With Liverpool dropping out of the race, it has become a direct duel between Real Madrid and Man City for Bellingham and reports suggested that the former Birmingham City ace had chosen the Spanish capital outfit.

However, according to the latest update from Fabrizio Romano on OnAmp (h/t Madrid Xtra), Bellingham is yet to make a decision on his next move, although he is in talks with Real Madrid at this moment.

The English ace has been in fine form this season and has helped Dortmund stay in contention for the Bundesliga title.

The Black and Yellows, for their part, do not wish to let their prized asset leave this summer and are hoping to keep hold of him for at least one more year.

Recent reports even suggested that they had offered him a new contract with a release clause amount worth €150 million.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, the plan is for them to take the approach they did with Aurelien Tchouameni last summer to convince Bellingham. To that end, officials from the club could fly to Germany imminently to hold concrete talks with the midfielder.

It has been claimed that the England star will be offered a contract that could run for five or six years, with wages close to some of the top earners at the club.

For now, though, despite some reports suggesting otherwise, Romano insists that Bellingham has not made a decision, meaning all options remain open.

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
