The transfer of Jude Bellingham is certain to dominate the headlines between now and the summer as several top clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City vie to sign him from Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old Englishman has become one of the most in-demand players in the market, thanks to his exploits with Dortmund as well as the England national team. After all, Bellingham was one of the Three Lions’ most standout players at the World Cup in Qatar.

Real Madrid have held a long-standing interest in the teenage midfield prodigy and see him as the ideal fit to take over from Luka Modric, who is in the final phase of his career.

Reports had suggested that Los Blancos are confident of signing Bellingham as the teenager would prefer a move to Spain over a return to England.

However, now, Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg is reporting that Liverpool still remain in the hunt for Bellingham and are optimistic about their chances of signing the England international in the summer transfer window.

The update states that the Reds have already held talks over a move for the 19-year-old prodigy, although it has been clarified that there has been no direct communication between the player and manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool are yet to make any kind of official offer for Bellingham either. However, they feel positive about their chances of signing him as they would be offering him the opportunity to become the next Steven Gerrard.

Dortmund, for their part, are preparing for Bellingham’s exit. However, they will not let go of the midfielder easily and will demand a fee close to around €140 million.

Real Madrid are said to be willing to meet that figure albeit including variables and add-ons. Liverpool, too, should not have any problems reaching that valuation. So, ultimately, it will likely come down to Bellingham’s wishes and preference and whether he opts for England or Spain.

Real Madrid will step up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro if Nacho decides to leave the club, according to a report by Agustin Martin in AS.

The situation surrounding Nacho is becoming increasingly uncertain. While he has received a lucrative offer from Al Ittihad, the move has reportedly hit a roadblock.

It is said that Nacho feels that his role in the team has not progressed under coach Ancelotti and his absence from the starting lineup in important matches, like the first leg of the quarterfinals against Manchester City and the Clasico has made him consider leaving the club. 

Furthermore, the recoveries of Eder Militao and David Alaba, along with the presence of Antonio Rudiger and the potential return of Rafa Marin have also influenced his thoughts about his future.

Interestingly, it is not just his teammates’ presence that has made Nacho think about leaving. There are strong rumours about Real Madrid signing Leny Yoro as well. 

The plan is to sign Yoro either this summer and possibly loan him out if Nacho stays, or in 2025 to join the first team. 

If Nacho decides to leave, it would pave the way for Yoro to join immediately. This decision depends on Nacho’s willingness to stay for another year or take up one of the offers he has received. 

This means the potential signing of Yoro hinges on Nacho’s decision. If the club captain chooses to leave, Yoro could join Real Madrid this year or next. 

For what it is worth, Yoro would strengthen a defensive lineup where most players, except for Militao and possibly Rafa Marín, are over thirty years old. But for this to happen, Nacho must decide whether to stay at Real Madrid or open the door for Yoro’s arrival.
