While the summer transfer window of 2023 may still be a long way away, it is becoming clearer with each day that Jude Bellingham will spark a major battle for his signing.

The 19-year-old is seen as one of the most prodigious young midfielders in the game, having grown rapidly in stature since joining Borussia Dortmund two years ago.

Real Madrid have made the England international their priority target for the summer of 2023 as question marks linger over the continuity of Toni Kroos, who remains coy on his future with his contract expiring at the end of the season.

However, Los Blancos are facing serious competition from Premier League giants Liverpool, who are also intent on signing Bellingham in the summer window next year. So much so that, BILD is reporting that Jurgen Klopp’s side are ready to offer €100 million.

Liverpool have made a poor start to the season compared to their lofty standards and see the injection of fresh blood into an ageing midfield unit as a priority for next summer.

Bellingham, to that end, has emerged as Klopp’s top target, with the German tactician asking the club to splash a record sum of €100 million to secure the 19-year-old’s signing. The Reds are reportedly ready to go all-out to capture his services.

Borussia Dortmund, for their part, are aware that it might prove to be difficult to hold on to Bellingham given the interest in him. After all, the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea are also keen on the ex-Birmingham City wonderkid apart from Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The German giants, though, are determined to extract a premium fee for their star midfielder and will demand €150 million for his services.

Real Madrid, for their part, are believed to be laying the groundwork for a deal to sign Bellingham. But with Liverpool now ready to up the ante and shell out €100 million, Los Blancos will need to act swiftly if they wish to beat the competition for his signing.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
