Although we are still in the early parts of the 2022/23 campaign, a number of players are already making their case for becoming the hottest prospect in the 2023 summer transfer window.

One of those players includes Jude Bellingham. The Borussia Dortmund starlet has mesmerised onlookers with his consistent performances in the Bundesliga. He has also showcased exemplary leadership at a young age, notably captaining Dortmund in a Champions League game at the age of just 19.

Bellingham’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid among the clubs targeting a move for the midfielder in 2023.

However, according to a report from SportBILD, Chelsea are ready to rival Real Madrid in the race to sign the English international. The Premier League giants are even looking to move one step ahead by promising Dortmund a payment of more than €100 million.

It is quite a fortune for a 19-year-old, who joined Dortmund a little over two years ago. However, luring Bellingham away from the Bundesliga will not be so easy, as Dortmund are determined to keep hold of the player.

Even if the Black and Yellows agree to sell the midfielder, they are likely to hold out for a much higher figure than €100 million.

Recent reports suggest Los Blancos have a whopping €425 million budget ahead of the 2023 summer transfer window.

There have been speculations about a possible move for Kylian Mbappe amid reports of the Frenchman wanting to leave PSG. However, Bellingham is understood to be Real Madrid’s main objective for the summer of 2023.

But with Chelsea ready to flex their financial muscles and the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City also believed to be interested, Los Blancos will have their task cut out to land the England international.

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
