Real Madrid have invested heavily in midfield lately, notably bringing in the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni and Edouard Camavinga for a fortune.

They are expected to serve as the future of the Real Madrid midfield unit, as veterans such as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos enjoy the final phase of their careers at the Santiago Bernabeu.

While both Tchouameni and Camavinga have been significant investments, Real Madrid have no plan of stopping just yet. They are, in fact, targeting an ambitious summer move for one of the hottest midfield prospects on the planet, in the form of Jude Bellingham.

This has been reported by Diario AS (h/t Madrid Xtra), who suggest the Spanish giants have identified the Borussia Dortmund starlet as one of their transfer priorities in 2023.

Bellingham has been hugely successful in the Bundesliga, establishing himself as a leader at Dortmund even in his teenage years. His aggression and leadership qualities are lauded by many while the youngster also boasts excellent technical ability.

Bellingham’s performances have not been restricted to the Bundesliga either as the Englishman has performed consistently for his country as well. He was notably the Man of the Match when the Three Lions came from behind to draw 3-3 with Germany during the international break.

In light of the performance, Real Madrid are now aware that singing Bellingham from Dortmund will not be a walk in the park. In fact, Los Blancos believe that the Englishman could cost up to €130 million, which is a fortune for a player of his age.

It may even price Real Madrid out of the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund starlet, who is widely labelled as one of the best talents to come out of English football.

And with the 2022 FIFA World Cup just around the corner, all eyes will be on Bellingham as he looks to further increase his demand ahead of the summer transfer window. With interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, things will only get harder for Real Madrid in their pursuit of the teenager.

    Although there will be competition but Real Madrid should put more effort next season to sign Jude Bellingham as the only important player needed as of next season. While upper season (2024) priority should be given to Halaand for his signature.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
