Real Madrid have boasted of one of the best midfields in the world over the last decade or so, with Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Casemiro at the helm. Further, they learnt from the mistakes of their arch-rivals Barcelona, and have already started to revamp the centre of the park with the young reinforcements.

Los Blancos already have the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde on their roster, but do not want to stop anytime soon. They have been eyeing a move for English wonderkid Jude Bellingham.

They have, however, received a blow in their pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that Liverpool have already begun talks with the player.

Further, the reliable journalist also claims that Chelsea and Manchester City are also in race for the player, and nothing has been finalised yet.

The player is expected to stay at Dortmund through the winter, with his price tag reaching nearly €120 million in the summer.

Real Madrid have been planning for this transfer for months, now, alongside Liverpool, and will not give up easily.

That said, they realise the competition for his signature will be extremely tough, and as such, they have prepared a four-man backup shortlist.

These four players on their radar are Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio, Enzo Fernandez of SL Benfica and Lovro Majer of Rennes.

Bellingham will likely not contemplate his future before the World Cup, and the way he has started the tournament, his stocks will only increase from here on.

Real Madrid fans were dealt with a massive blow when star player Antonio Rudiger was left out of the squad against Real Valladolid, allegedly due to knee discomfort.

The injury sparked fears over his absence in the upcoming Copa Del Rey semifinal against Barcelona.

However, according to a report from Sergio Quirante, Rudiger’s knee injury is not thought to be serious. It appears the decision to leave him out of the squad against Valladolid may only be a precaution, with the defender set to undergo ultrasonic tests tomorrow.

Rudiger, whose injury scare came just 48 hours before Real Madrid’s big game against Barcelona, has been a stellar success in the club’s backline this season.

The German international has emerged as a real leader at the back, using his experience and authority to good effect. Although Real Madrid’s defence has left a lot to be desired this season, Rudiger has been one of the bright sparks.

His potential absence, therefore, could serve as a major blow for Los Blancos, in their hopes to reach the Copa Del Rey semifinal next week.

Real Madrid are heading into this semifinal with a 1-0 defeat in the first leg, meaning keeping a clean sheet could be mandatory if they are to overturn the deficit and book a place in the final. Rudiger, in that regard, could prove to be a vital asset.

In the meantime, Real Madrid are heading into the Valladolid game with David Alaba and Eder Militao as two of the only reliable centre-backs in the team. Among the two, Alaba has struggled with injuries this season, so it will be interesting to see how Carlo Ancelotti deals with this tricky situation this afternoon.
