Over the past week or so, things have started to move in Real Madrid’s long-running pursuit of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old has been at the top of the summer shopping list for the reigning champions of Spain and Europe. And, it has been reported that the Englishman is close to agreeing personal terms with the Merengues, with a meeting between the two clubs to take place to finalise the deal.

Borussia Dortmund, though, have still been carrying a faint hope of keeping hold of Bellingham for at least one more year.

To that end, as per BILD, the Black and Yellows have offered the 19-year-old a significantly improved contract worth €14 million per year until 2026 in the hope that it might convince Bellingham to stay.

However, the former Birmingham City star will reject it in order to join Real Madrid, with the decision already understood to be made by him.

It is further claimed that Bellingham made the decision for himself and that Los Blancos are very confident of closing the deal in the coming weeks.

The report suggests that Dortmund cannot compete with the contract that Real Madrid will offer to him, which would be worth €20 million per year and would run until 2029.

Dortmund, for their part, remain hopeful of making €150 million from Bellingham’s sale, but it has been reported that Real Madrid might not offer such a steep amount and the deal could close for around €120-130 million, including add-ons.

The England star will likely wait until the Bundesliga is over to announce his decision. For now, he remains focused on the title race and would hope to bid goodbye to Signal Iduna Park with the championship in the bag.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
