According to MARCA’s Jose Felix Diaz, Manchester City have made their presence felt in the race for Real Madrid and Liverpool target Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old is all set to depart Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window after enjoying a successful stint in Germany. The youngster has become one of the hottest prospects in the game and is attracting major interest from across Europe.

Real Madrid have been touted as the frontrunners for Bellingham’s signing, with reports suggesting that Los Blancos will be opening talks with Dortmund over a deal for their top target imminently.

Real Madrid have made Bellingham their top target as they prepare to complete their midfield transition, with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos reaching the final phase of their respective careers.

It had been reported that Liverpool were Real Madrid’s toughest competitors in the race for Bellingham. However, of late, the Reds have seemingly accepted defeat in their pursuit of the England international and are looking at other possible options.

But Manchester City have now presented themselves as a major threat for Real Madrid’s chances.

The report states that Pep Guardiola has made Bellingham his top target for next year and the Premier League champions are ready to show their financial clout by matching any offer that arrives for the midfielder, who could cost around €140 million.

The player and his camp are aware of the intentions of both Real Madrid and Manchester City and the final decision will now be up to Bellingham and his father.

Real Madrid, however, are confident about their chances of landing Bellingham even though they are unwilling to break their wage structure to land him.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
