With the summer transfer window entering its final stages, clubs across the globe are engaged in a frantic dance of negotiations

Scouts and rival clubs proceed to be entranced by the allure of the Real Madrid stars as interest in them sparks from various directions.

Liverpool interested in Madrid’s midfield pair

Now, according to SPORT, Liverpool have emerged as one of the clubs highly interested in the services of Aurelien Tchouameni and Fede Valverde, two of Real Madrid’s most prized possessions in midfield.

The Merseyside giants are in the middle of a rebuilding phase, with aspirations of reclaiming their status in Europe.

Liverpool concluded the previous Premier League season outside the top four and endured a difficult defeat to Madrid in the Champions League, which has prompted them to look for promising midfielders in the market.

Having lost out on Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, Jurgen Klopp has set his sights on Tchouameni and Valverde, deeming one of them an essential signing this summer.

However, the report argues that Liverpool face several roadblocks in their quest for the midfield duo.

Madrid are unwilling to sell either of their star players.

The club’s hefty investment in Tchouameni and faith in his development imply the club are looking to bank on him for the future, while Valverde is also considered an important cog for Ancelotti.

Most importantly, the players are also hellbent on staying and succeeding in the Spanish capital.

As such, despite Klopp’s repeated affirmations of his preference for both footballers, it appears challenging for Liverpool to be successful in luring them away from Madrid.

The Royal Whites have started the league season on a positive note, and hope to build on these foundations with both Tchouameni and Valverde a part of the squad.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
