A recent report from ESPN has offered an update on the future of Jude Bellingham. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is currently the hottest prospect in Europe, with multiple clubs interested in his services.

Real Madrid are among the teams hoping to secure the services of Bellingham in the coming summer, but as per the report, they are set to face stiff competition from Liverpool.

The Premier League giants are even said to be ahead in the race as they are forming a close relationship with the player’s environment. The overall deal to take him to Anfield is also said to be advancing well, which has put Liverpool in pole position to secure his services.

Dortmund are expected to consider a sale of Bellingham in the upcoming January transfer window, or more likely, the 2023 summer transfer window. They were said to be valuing the player at around €100 million, but the figure could now rise up to €150 million.

However, all is not lost for Real Madrid just yet, as far as their pursuit of Bellingham is concerned. The Spanish giants have the financial means to pull off the deal, but more importantly, they can offer far better sporting prospects to the youngster.

Indeed, the Whites are the current champions of Europe and could lure the Englishman with the opportunity to become the long-term replacement for Luka Modric.

Liverpool, in contrast, have endured a disastrous start to the campaign and may not even qualify for the Champions League next season.

With that in mind, Real Madrid have an excellent chance of competing for Bellingham next summer, especially if they can conjure up the money for the English international.

Other clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United also remain in the picture for the 19-year-old English midfielder’s signing and it could make for a tense battle for his services come next summer.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
