A week after reports emerged that Jude Bellingham could soon make a decision on his future at Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool have made an offer for the English international, in their bid to lure the player to Anfield.

The report was initially made by Caught Offside, but it has now been confirmed by Jan Aage Fjortoft, who has a series of Bundesliga contacts due to his close proximity to the German top division.

The initial report claimed that Liverpool had made an offer of around €90 million for the services of Bellingham at the end of the season. The Reds appear quite certain that the midfielder will leave Dortmund in the summer, despite the club’s bumper €12 million renewal offer.

Liverpool are not the only interested party to have made a move on Bellingham this week. Even PSG have made initial contacts in their bid to sign the Englishman, who has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in the transfer market.

Real Madrid, too, are in the fray, but the Spanish giants have appeared quite reluctant in meeting Bellingham’s high valuation. Some even believe that the midfielder could cost in excess of €150 million, in which case Liverpool are likely to have their offer turned down by Dortmund.

Real Madrid, therefore, have reportedly cooled their pursuit of the player. But it will not be surprising to see the Spanish champions work behind the scenes to engineer a move for Bellingham.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has an excellent relationship with Dortmund boss Hans Joachim Watzke and the two clubs have facilitated many deals in the past. But whether or not that relationship will be enough to get the deal over the line remains to be seen.

France set for major boost as Real Madrid midfielder closes in on a return

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
