The Jude Bellingham saga is finally over as Borussia Dortmund have released an official statement confirming the player’s transfer to Real Madrid this summer. The player had agreed to a move long back, after which the two clubs reached an agreement over the final transfer fee.

The transfer will cost Real Madrid €103 million, plus bonuses. The add-ons can reach up to 30% of the fixed amount – around €30 million, which would take the total transfer fees up to approximately €130 million.

Bellingham has signed a six-year contract with los blancos, until June 2029.

Madrid had an uphill battle to sign Bellingham, with Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool also interested in his signature. The player ruled out the two blue outfits quickly, though, as he wanted to choose a club with history.

Liverpool, meanwhile, lost out to Real Madrid, who are financially in a much stronger position compared to the Premier League giants.

Bellingham is currently nursing a knee injury, but should be fit in time to join Madrid for the later part of their pre-season tour in the United States of America.

There just does not appear to be any respite from injuries for Real Madrid.

Just when it appeared that they were close to having their full squad – barring the two long-term absentees – the Merengues have been struck down by fresh injuries this week.

Arda Guler, who was on the cusp of being named in the squad for the Las Palmas clash, injured himself in training on Tuesday.

And now, during the game against Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have lost key defender David Alaba to an injury.

Close to the 40th-minute mark, Alaba went down on the ground clutching his leg and appeared to be in quite a bit of discomfort.

Soon enough, the medical staff arrived to take a look at the Austrian and seconds later he was off the pitch and straight towards the tunnel.

Lucas Vazquez came on to replace the injured Alaba, with Nacho Fernandez moving into the centre-back position alongside Antonio Rudiger.

Alaba’s injury leaves Carlo Ancelotti with just two fit centre-backs in Rudiger and Nacho, which is set to be a matter of great concern.

The hope will be that Alaba’s condition is nothing serious and that he is able to mount a quick recovery.
