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.

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.
