Real Madrid among ‘long list of clubs’ chasing English wonderkid next summer
As things stand, it isn’t a hot take to suggest that no club in Europe possesses the strength-in-depth in midfield than Real Madrid.
While Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are up there some of the best midfielders to have played the game, the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga have the potential to be one of the best players in their respective roles in the world one day.
Add the versatile Federico Valverde to the mix, as well as a utility player such as Dani Carvajal as well, and Los Blancos have an array of top-drawer options in the middle of the park. However, a fresh update suggests that Carlo Ancelotti’s men are eyeing the addition of yet another incredible midfielder to their ranks.
As per the latest information provided by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid are set to be one of the many elite clubs that will be in the race to sign Jude Bellingham in the summer of 2023.
Further details suggest that the European champions have set their sights on the generational talent for a long time.
The England international’s potential arrival could be seen as a plan to ease the side’s transition from the ageing duo of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, considering Casemiro has been moved on to Manchester United this season.
Alongside Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, Jude Bellingham could be viewed as the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle to reinvent the club’s midfield for years on end.
After all, at just 19 years of age, the ex-Birmingham City icon is hailed as a rare prospect in world football, due to his ability to operate across all three roles in midfield without breaking a sweat.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
