Jude Bellingham is one of the jewels of the transfer market right now, having established himself as a first-team regular at Borussia Dortmund and even the England national team.

Aged only 19, the Englishman has shown maturity well beyond his years. It is coupled with his leadership qualities and aggression, making him an ideal target for a club like Real Madrid, who have been courting him as a long-term midfield asset.

However, Bellingham’s future is not yet known as Borussia Dortmund are keen on keeping hold of the midfielder at least for another season. The two parties were expected to hold talks over the player’s future this April.

According to the reliable Ruhrnachrichten, it appears Bellingham’s decision is just around the corner, after months of speculations over his future.

Although the report states that Dortmund are keen on securing the midfielder’s future with a new contract and had offered him a bumper €12 million salary, the Englishman has appeared open to options.

For a while, Bellingham was closely linked with a move to Liverpool. But Real Madrid, too, are keeping close tabs on his situation and would want to beat others to the chase, including the Reds and their Premier League rivals Manchester City.

However, it must be noted that Real Madrid are unwilling to meet Bellingham’s €150 million valuation set by Dortmund.

There have been suggestions that they might go after him in 2024. This is due to various factors including the fact that the club are likely to retain the services of the ageing midfield heroes Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for one more season.

Although their continuity will not affect the role of Bellingham, the club are aware of the fact that the Englishman would be available for cheap in 2024, with his current contract at Dortmund expiring in 2025.

But, with Liverpool and Manchester City lying in wait to sign him up, Real Madrid could end up missing out on Bellingham if they decide to wait for next year.

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.
