It is well-known at this point that Real Madrid are intent on signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund next summer.

The 19-year-old midfield sensation is attracting serious interest from several other top clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United as well.

However, according to journalist Jorge C Picon, the England international’s camp have informed him that he wants to join Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

It is claimed that Bellingham sees Real Madrid as his priority for the next year. The former Birmingham City star is aware that the likes of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are in the final stage of their respective careers.

And he believes that he can take over for the future along with the likes of Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

If true, this will come as a huge boost for Real Madrid in their pursuit of Bellingham. The champions of Spain and Europe have been monitoring the young midfielder for a long time now and have been working on a deal to sign him for a year.

And the efforts seem to be paying off now, with the Englishman willing to join Real Madrid next year.

Since joining Dortmund from Birmingham City in 2020, Bellingham has developed into one of the most exciting young midfielders in the game. This season itself, he has already netted eight goals and set up two more for his teammates in 17 matches across all competitions.

A regular in the England national team squad, Bellingham’s stock could further rise if he enjoys a strong World Cup in Qatar over the next month. He still has more than two years left on his contract with Dortmund. So, they will demand a premium fee for the 19-year-old.

As things stand, though, all signs point towards Bellingham joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2023.

According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid are shifting its focus towards securing new contracts for key players Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy in the upcoming weeks.

Both Carvajal and Mendy have contracts that are set to expire in 2025. While there have been some challenges regarding Mendy’s future, Real Madrid have remained clear about their intentions for the Euro 2024 winner.

Over the past year, Carvajal has had an impressive run, adding three more trophies to his collection with Real Madrid, including the Euro 2024 championship. 

Interestingly, he is currently not overly concerned about his future. He hasn’t been thinking much about his contract extension, with the last major news about it surfacing about a month ago.

“At the moment I’m not thinking about leaving Madrid, far from it. My subjective perception is that the day I can’t contribute what I can contribute, I’ll take a step aside,” he said a few weeks back.

On the other hand, Mendy’s future at Real Madrid seemed uncertain due to rumours that he might be replaced by Alphonso Davies. 

However, Carlo Ancelotti has shown an unusually strong preference for retaining Mendy. The manager has made it clear that he wants Mendy to stay. 

He has praised Mendy’s skills and performances throughout the past season, making it evident that he sees Mendy as a crucial part of his strategy.

At present, there is a significant concern within the team that if an agreement is not reached by next summer, Mendy could leave the club on a free transfer. This scenario is something Real Madrid are keen to avoid.

As Real Madrid move forward with these contract negotiations, the focus remains on securing the futures of both Carvajal and Mendy, ensuring that they continue to contribute to the club’s success in the years to come.
