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.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
