Real Madrid have a tradition of going after a marquee signing in every transfer window. Not all of Los Blancos’ big-name transfer targets end up signing for the club, but some transfer sagas just seem to have their ending written in stone.

Such is the case with Jude Bellingham. It is well known that Real Madrid see the English youngster as a key piece in their future midfield and are willing to go all out for him in the summer.

However, Carlo Ancelotti’s side are not the only party in the running for Bellingham’s signature. Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea are just some of the other big clubs interested in the player but the biggest competitor is undoubtedly Liverpool.

But according to former Premier League midfielder Jamie O’Hara on talkSPORT, the Merseyside team now have no chance of signing the youngster and are out of the race for his transfer.

Jurgen Klopp was initially keen on securing Bellingham as the Englishman was the ideal solution to Liverpool’s midfield troubles. Given their ageing core, the team needed reinforcements, and fast.

But, O’Hara believes that with the Reds looking likely to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League, they can kiss their hopes of signing Bellingham goodbye.

“I don’t see them getting into the top four. I can’t see them breaking into the top four with that team. They won’t even get Jude Bellingham now, they won’t get Bellingham!”

Furthermore, a combination of the player’s desire to play in Madrid and the heavy economics involved could make things further difficult for Liverpool.

The Borussia Dortmund star is one of the most valued youngsters in world football and has even captained the Bundesliga side in the UEFA Champions League at the tender age of 19. While his services will not come for cheap, Florentino Perez is willing to splash the cash on him and considers Bellingham a worthy investment.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
