It is no top secret that Real Madrid are gunning for the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfield sensation Jude Bellingham in the summer.

The 19-year-old England international has emerged as the top target for the Merengues ahead of the upcoming transfer window as they seek to slowly move on from the old guard of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos and establish a new order.

To that end, talks have already taken place with Bellingham’s entourage with recent reports revealing that Real Madrid chief scout Juni Calafat held a meeting with the youngster’s father and transfer advisor Mark Bellingham in London.

Now, though, Christian Falk of BILD (h/t Madrid Xtra) is claiming that the meeting in London between Real Madrid and Bellingham’s father was not the only instance of talks taking place. In fact, the two parties are understood to have also met in Madrid.

Talks are seemingly going on constantly between Los Blancos and Bellingham’s entourage as they continnue to probe the possibility of a transfer.

While Real Madrid have a strong interest in the 19-year-old, they are reluctant to match the €150 million valuation that Real Madrid have slapped on him.

That could end up proving to be a sticking point in the transfer, especially considering that Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are also interested and would be capable of spending big money for his signing.

But, the ongoing talks between Madrid and Mark Bellingham could hint that things are going in the right direction with regard to their pursuit of the former Birmingham City starlet.

Real Madrid will step up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro if Nacho decides to leave the club, according to a report by Agustin Martin in AS.

The situation surrounding Nacho is becoming increasingly uncertain. While he has received a lucrative offer from Al Ittihad, the move has reportedly hit a roadblock.

It is said that Nacho feels that his role in the team has not progressed under coach Ancelotti and his absence from the starting lineup in important matches, like the first leg of the quarterfinals against Manchester City and the Clasico has made him consider leaving the club. 

Furthermore, the recoveries of Eder Militao and David Alaba, along with the presence of Antonio Rudiger and the potential return of Rafa Marin have also influenced his thoughts about his future.

Interestingly, it is not just his teammates’ presence that has made Nacho think about leaving. There are strong rumours about Real Madrid signing Leny Yoro as well. 

The plan is to sign Yoro either this summer and possibly loan him out if Nacho stays, or in 2025 to join the first team. 

If Nacho decides to leave, it would pave the way for Yoro to join immediately. This decision depends on Nacho’s willingness to stay for another year or take up one of the offers he has received. 

This means the potential signing of Yoro hinges on Nacho’s decision. If the club captain chooses to leave, Yoro could join Real Madrid this year or next. 

For what it is worth, Yoro would strengthen a defensive lineup where most players, except for Militao and possibly Rafa Marín, are over thirty years old. But for this to happen, Nacho must decide whether to stay at Real Madrid or open the door for Yoro’s arrival.
