Jude Bellingham has been the hot topic at Real Madrid for quite some time now. The Englishman is the club’s transfer priority in 2023, with the player being identified as a potential long-term replacement for the ageing Luka Modric.

However, Borussia Dortmund are not expected to make things easier for Real Madrid to sign their top target this coming summer.

According to SportBILD, Dortmund are weighing up a fresh contract offer for Bellingham, whose current deal at Signal Iduna Park expires in 2025.

The player’s relatively long contract has given Dortmund the leverage to hold out for a hefty fee amounting to €150 million. But it appears the club are also keen on keeping hold of the player beyond the summer and avoid losing another young talent to a European giant.

To that end, the Bundesliga giants have come up with a ‘spectacular’ plan to keep hold of Bellingham. They are planning to offer the youngster a bumper contract extension offer that would make him the highest-paid player at Signal Iduna Park.

The club are looking to offer him as much as €15 million per year, which is higher than what BVB pay club captain Marco Reus, who in turn, has reportedly been asked to lower his salary in light of the recent economic troubles.

Bellingham, for his part, has always confessed his love and passion for Dortmund. But he has remained coy on his future lately, which could hint at a desire to take the next step in his career, especially with the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool interested in his services.

Recent reports across Europe suggest Liverpool are in a good position to sign Bellingham in the coming summer. But Real Madrid are not ready to lose sight of their top target that easily and are prepared to fork out a hefty sum for the Englishman.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
