Earlier today, reports in Spain suggested that PSG had entered the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Real Madrid transfer target Jude Bellingham.

Now, building on that, Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that the French champions have already made initial contacts with Bellingham over a possible move in the summer transfer window.

Bellingham is, without a doubt, one of the most wanted commodities in the market heading into the summer transfer window.

The likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid have been hot on his trails for a while now. But they will now have to compete with the threat of PSG, who are also keen on securing the former Birmingham City starlet’s services.

As per the report, PSG have already made contact with Bellingham in the past few days and even though they are aware of the interest from Real Madrid and Premier League clubs, they will continue to try and convince the 19-year-old over a move.

Back in December last year, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had spoken highly of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, saying: “Everybody wants him, I’m not going to hide it. He’s at his club, and (we have) respect, so if we want to talk to him we’ll talk to the club first.

“Amazing player, what a player. England (are) lucky to have to him, to be honest. He’s one of the best players in the tournament. (It’s) amazing, his first World Cup, he’s calm and relaxed, confident – amazing.”

Real Madrid, for their part, see Bellingham as the final piece of the puzzle as they look to move on from their old-guard midfield. But they are unwilling to meet the €150 million that Dortmund are demanding for the England star.

In fact, given the prospect of a bidding war and the possibility of overspending on the player, Real Madrid have reportedly decided to cool off their interest in Bellingham, unless the midfielder himself makes a move towards the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid have offered a three-year contract to 26-year-old Spanish midfielder

According to AS, Real Madrid have sent a three-year contract offer with improved wages to Dani Ceballos and trust that the midfielder will continue at the club.

Ceballos is the last among the seven Los Blancos’ stars who entered the 2022/23 season with an expiring contract whose future is yet to be resolved.

Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Karim Benzema have all left Real Madrid while Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Nacho Fernandez are all set to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more year.

As such, Ceballos remains the only player whose future remains unclear at this point.

The 26-year-old Spanish international has shown that he can offer value to the team and the club and manager Carlo Ancelotti are understood to ‘love’ him and want to retain his services.

Fans, too, made their feelings about the midfielder very clear this past weekend when Real Madrid played Athletic Club, as they chanted ‘Ceballos, stay!’

The Merengues have sent in a three-year proposal to the former Real Betis ace which includes an improvement in his wages. As such, the club expect him to pen the deal and continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Ceballos is yet to make a decision as he is weighing up the fact that he will have to compete for a place with six other midfielders.

Indeed, Real Madrid already have Kroos, Modric, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni as competition for Ceballos. Now, they will also add Jude Bellingham to the roster, further amping up the battle for places.

Ceballos has two more offers apart from the one from Real Madrid – one from Spain and Italy each, although his former club Real Betis have not sent a proposal yet.

With the season over and less than three weeks left on his contract, it remains to be seen what the Real Madrid ace decides.
