Speaking in an interview, Borussia Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl has confirmed that the club intends to keep hold of Real Madrid transfer target Jude Bellingham for at least one more season.

The 19-year-old England international is one of the most in-demand players heading into the summer transfer window. Real Madrid are one of his most ardent suitors and even held a meeting with his father earlier this week to discuss a transfer.

Meanwhile, clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City are also pushing to sign the teenage sensation who has been a revelation since leaving Birmingham City for Dortmund back in 2020.

While the interest in the youngster may be peaking big time, the German giants still harbour hopes of keeping hold of their midfield gem for one more year.

Speaking to Carrie Brown (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Kehl said: “We will do all we can to keep Bellingham at BVB for one more season.”

Reports had suggested that Dortmund intend to make a new contract offer to Bellingham. As per the details, the 19-year-old would he handed a massive €15 million per year deal, which would make him the highest-earner at the club.

However, the Italian transfer expert mentions that it will be difficult for Dortmund to do so, as clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Liverpool keep pushing to sign him up in the summer transfer window.

Bellingham, for his part, is yet to make a decision on his future and it remains to be seen whether he is tempted by the prospect of staying at Dortmund for one more year or leaves Signal Iduna Park in favour of a new challenge.

Before he was hired by Bayern Munich as the direct replacement for Julian Nagelsmann, Thomas Tuchel was closely linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The German tactician had kept a close eye on the development at Santiago Bernabeu, especially with coach Carlo Ancelotti facing immense pressure following the club’s poor performances in domestic competitions.

A recent report from Jorge Picon has offered more details on the Tuchel saga, suggesting that the coach was even learning Spanish during his time at Ibiza, anticipating a potential move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

There were even contacts made between Tuchel’s entourage and Real Madrid. Although the talks were positive, the two sides were not able to reach an agreement.

Real Madrid did not guarantee him the job. They had informed Tuchel that Ancelotti may continue at the Bernabeu in the event the club win the UEFA Champions League this season.

This bit of uncertainty played a critical role in convincing Tuchel to join Bayern Munich instead. The former Chelsea boss was hired as a direct replacement for Nagelsmann, who was sacked after a poor season in the Bundesliga by the club’s high standards.

However, Tuchel’s move to Bayern appears to be a missed opportunity on the German’s part, as Real Madrid have recently intensified their search for a new manager.

It is clear that the club’s hierarchy is yet to reach a consensus over the future of Ancelotti, with some believing that a change is necessary come the end of the season. In fact, the club’s president Florentino Perez has been an admirer of Tuchel’s compatriot Nagelsmann.

The coaching prodigy is one of the candidates to replace Ancelotti in the summer, though it is Mauricio Pochettion who is reportedly leading the race so far.
