In a positive update, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund advanced in talks with each other over the transfer of Jude Bellingham this past Monday. As such, an agreement is finally closer and the deal could be completed this week.

Real Madrid have made Bellingham their top priority for the summer transfer window. Personal terms with the 19-year-old England international have already been agreed and the deal was expected to be over the line soon after the Bundesliga season ended.

However, that has not been the case as of yet. But there is no reason to worry for fans as Romano reports that a positive round of negotiations took place between the two clubs on Monday and they moved closer to finalising the deal for the midfielder.

One of the best young midfielders on the planet, Bellingham will likely cost the Merengues around €100 million plus add-ons.

It has been previously reported that the midfielder will be signing a six-year contract until 2029. His deal will have a massive release clause and wages that will increase with each passing season.

Real Madrid hope to finalise the signing of the 19-year-old by the end of the week.

The job will not be done though as the Spanish capital giants have a huge task of securing a replacement for Karim Benzema, who will be leaving for Saudi Arabia.

At the same time, Los Blancos are also looking for attacking reinforcements to make up for the losses of players like Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard from the squad.

Despite the impending arrival of Fran Garcia, another left-back is also on the agenda at the Valdebebas, while a move for a new right-back is not completely ruled out either.

It promises to be a hectic summer for Real Madrid, but they can tick the Bellingham box before this week after the latest round of negotiations with Dortmund went positively.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
