Man City superstar has urged Real Madrid transfer target to join him at the Etihad
Jude Bellingham was one of the star performers as England kickstarted their World Cup campaign with a 6-2 victory over Iran.
The Englishman scored the opening goal and ran the show in the middle of the park with sheer panache. The performance was indicative of the quality the youngster possesses, and has once again put a number of clubs on red alert.
According to Ben Jacobs, Borussia Dortmund are prepared to lose Bellingham in the near future. Although several clubs have tried to push for a move in the upcoming January transfer window, Dortmund are planning a summer exit for their prized midfield asset.
Jacobs adds that Real Madrid are among the frontrunners in the race to sign Bellingham, along with Liverpool. But Manchester City are also thought to be in contention to sign the Englishman, who may plan to join a club that can offer him regular Champions League.
Man City may even have a slight advantage in the contest due to the presence of Erling Haaland. The young Norwegian was one of Bellingham’s close friends during their time together at Dortmund. In fact, Jacobs claims Haaland has already urged Bellingham to join Man City.
Real Madrid, though, remain pretty much in the contest. They can offer an exciting sporting prospect for the youngster, especially with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos nearing the end of their long spells at Santiago Bernabeu.
Borussia Dortmund, for their part, have hinted that they will start negotiating Bellingham’s future soon after the World Cup. The player was thought to be valued at around €100 million, but clubs like Real Madrid now realise the Englishman could cost significantly more than that mark.
A lot could be clarified after the ongoing World Cup, as far as Bellingham’s future is concerned.

Real Madrid have made Man City defensive target a top priority for the summer
Although Antonio Rudiger has had success since joining Real Madrid last summer, the club are in need of more depth and players that can form the backbone of the defensive unit in the years to come.
As part of their plans, Real Madrid are prioritising a move for Josko Gvardiol in the coming summer, reports 90 Min.
The outlet suggests Gvardiol will be one of the most wanted prospects in the market, with both Real Madrid and Manchester City eyeing a move for the Croatian international come the end of the season.
Formerly of Dinamo Zagreb, Gvardiol has enjoyed immense success since his move to the Bundesliga in 2021. He has impressed onlookers with his skill, organisation and discipline, which, coupled with his versatility, make him an appealing target for any European giant.
Gvardiol was also one of the top performers at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, helping Croatia finish third in the competition. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid among the clubs who have been keeping an eye on the defender for a while now.
However, signing Gvardiol will be a tricky task for Los Blancos. The player still has a long-term contract at Leipzig and could cost up to €85 million, as reported by 90 Min. Not to mention, the competition from Man City could be significant.
Real Madrid have no shortage of alternatives, though, with the club notably closely monitoring Portuguese defensive whizkid Antonio Silva, among others. So it will be interesting to see how the Spanish giants approach the market in this coming summer.
