€90 million-rated striker would leave Premier League only for Real Madrid – report



The summer transfer window usually harbors the most confusing months in the world of football. With its commencement, stories of players changing loyalties, managers being shown the door and unanticipated departures will steal the headlines week in and week out.

Yet, the volatile period appears to have arrived in Madrid early. Real Madrid still have a game left to play this season and already find themselves in a state of frenzy.

The Spanish giants had a clear idea of their approach to the summer window last month. Jude Bellingham was going to be their star signing, while the right-back, left-back and right-wing positions were seen as other departments in need of reinforcements.

Out of the blue reports of Karim Benzema’s departure took the Spanish capital by storm. After all, the management were suddenly under pressure to replace one of the team’s best players with less than two months intimation.

The Merengues’ search for a new striker took them to Tottenham Hotspurs, and Harry Kane quickly emerged as a possible option to replace the departing Frenchman.

According to reports from Toni Juanmarti (h/t Madrid Xtra), the English striker has a big desire to play for Real Madrid. He does not wish to leave the Premier League but would make an exception if Los Blancos make an approach.

The England captain is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in world football and would fit well into Carlo Ancelotti’s dynamics. However, Florentino Perez has other ideas as hopes to sign one of Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe next summer. Thus, the objective -if Benzema leaves- would be to sign a low-cost alternative.

Moreover, the Ballon d’Or winner’s continuity could potentially take a U-turn, as the French forward hinted at staying for another season.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
