According to journalist Patrick Berger, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has still not made a decision on his future despite the fact that the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid are interested in his acquisition.

Bellingham, 19, is arguably the most in-demand midfielder across Europe and Borussia Dortmund might as well be forced to sell him if someone agrees to pay the astronomical fee that they are demanding.

Given the fact that his contract with Dortmund runs until 2025, Berger says that they will hold out for a fee of €150 million, as they still very much intend to keep hold of the midfielder.

Dortmund, in fact, are looking to make him the team’s highest earner by extending his contract. But first, the Bundesliga giants want to know what the 19-year-old actually wants.

Interestingly enough, Dortmund will only make an offer if he says he will continue. At the same time, if the situation is otherwise, the Germans will look to cash on him.

At this moment, though, despite the evident interest, Borussia Dortmund’s director Sebastian Kehl has said that no one from the aforementioned teams has approached with an official offer.

“There are no offers at all for Jude Bellingham as of now, nothing is decided. We will speak to Jude and his family, no pressure — there are absolutely no proposals.”

Real Madrid have made Bellingham their top target for the summer as they look to inject more fresh blood into their midfield department.

While it had been suggested that the 19-year-old had decided to snub a move to England in favour of Spain, the aforementioned report claims otherwise. And with Dortmund still holding onto hopes of retaining the midfielder, only time will tell where he ends up come summer.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
