The Spanish news media has been flooded by news of Jude Bellingham reportedly reaching agreement with Real Madrid over a potential move to Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

Subsequent reports claim Real Madrid are also close to reaching an agreement with all parties that may settle Bellingham’s future at the Bernabeu once and for all. It would be quite a milestone for Los Blancos, as they look to build a solid foundation for the future.

However, in the midst of ongoing rumours, Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl was recently asked about the future of Bellingham.

But Kehl refused to talk about the Englishman, citing that the team is purely focused on winning the Bundesliga title this season.

“We want to become champions here in Bundesliga, it’s out total priority. We’re subordinating everything else to that right now”, Kehl told Sky Sports (h/t Fabrizio Romano).

Kehl’s comments are hardly surprising as Dortmund are closer than ever to beating Bayern Munich to the league title. The Black and Yellows are currently trailing the Bavarians by just one point, with four matches left to be played.

That means any slip-up on Bayern Munich’s part could allow Dortmund to get on top and possibly seal the league title by the season’s end. One would argue even Bellingham would be focused on helping his team seal the title, rather than being enthused about his future.

Real Madrid, for their part, are set to closely monitor the Englishman’s situation. Everything suggests the Spanish giants have his signature sealed, despite interest from Manchester City and Liverpool, among other top clubs across Europe.

It is now up to the club to finalise the deal and officiate the transfer. Whether or not it will be done before the end of the season remains to be seen.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
