With every passing day, the spotlight on Jude Bellingham gets brighter. In England’s dramatic 3-3 draw to Germany earlier this week, the Borussia Dortmund player was at the peak of his powers and was even named the man of the match.

Birmingham City striker Troy Deeney recently penned a column for The Sun, where he shared his thoughts about Bellingham’s unique style of football and future. Interestingly, he pushed the youngster to turn down approaches from Liverpool and sign for Real Madrid instead.

“I just have a feeling that Spanish football will suit him. If Real Madrid come in, I can’t see Jude turning that down.” 

In that same article, the English footballer went on to say that he sees Bellingham as a future captain of the English National Team.

“I already think he is a superstar. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the face of the FIFA game next year and I think he will be England captain in three to four years’ time.”

In eight Bundesliga appearances so far this season, the youngster averages 2.5 shots and over 15 defensive actions per game. Moreover, he also has an assist to his name.

Real Madrid are expected to go all out for his signature in the upcoming transfer windows as they see him as an ideal Luka Modric replacement. However, the operation could involve a transfer fee well north of €100 million.

His current deal with the Germans runs until the summer of 2025 and Dortmund will not make it easy for any club to sign him. And with competition from the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, the chase will be anything but straightforward.

That said, it remains to be seen as to how far Los Blancos are willing to go for his services.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
