Speaking to The Athletic (via Fabrizio Romano), Borussia Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl has insisted that they have not received any bids for Real Madrid transfer target Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old midfield sensation is the top priority for the Merengues heading into the summer transfer window. And, as per multiple reliable reports, personal terms have been agreed with the Englishman.

It had been reported that Real Madrid were preparing a formal offer for Bellingham, but it seems like they are yet to send it to Borussia Dortmund as of yet.

“In terms of bids, there’s still nothing on the table. There are rumours, but there’s nothing on the table,” Kehl said.

Building on that, Romano adds that Real Madrid’s plan was always to table an official bid next week as they do not wish to disrespect Dortmund by causing any distractions amidst their Bundesliga title pursuit.

At the moment, the Black and Yellows are sitting atop the Bundesliga standings, two points clear of champions Bayern Munich. With one game left to be played in the season, a win against Mainz this weekend would crown them the champions of Germany.

And, it would certainly be a nice way for Bellingham to end his time at Signal Iduna Park.

The England international has netted 14 goals and set up seven more from 42 games in all competitions this season, playing a vital role for Dortmund. And he will be hoping to add to his tally over the weekend to lead his club to the title.

Once the Bundesliga campaign is wrapped up, Real Madrid could step up their final approach to sign the former Birmingham City ace.

Even though Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are set to renew for one more season, it has become clear that the Merengues could use some fresh blood in the centre of the park. And Bellingham will provide just that.

It is believed that Bellingham would be signing a six-year contract until 2029 with Real Madrid and would be one of the top earners at the Santiago Bernabeu.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
