Real Madrid believe Bellingham’s price will rise to €130 million in 2023 – report
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.

Turkish giants to go all-out to sign Real Madrid outcast – report
There is no way back for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. The Belgian international has not given the management any reason to have faith in his abilities over his past four seasons at the club and is unsurprisingly the most important departure for the Merengues in the summer.
Hazard has one more year on his contract in Madrid. However, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti does not trust him and that any potential replacement manager in the summer will echo his stance.
According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Fenerbahce are willing to go all out to sign Hazard this summer. The Turkish side have made the former Chelsea their prime target, yet face a steep task ahead of them.
The 32-year-old is hellbent on seeing out his contract with Los Blancos despite seeing his career sink right before his eyes. It thus becomes complicated for the party to lure away the forward, especially in a competition outside Europe’s top five leagues.
Fenerbahce attempted to sign the winger in the recently concluded winter transfer market. They reached an agreement with Real Madrid but failed to get over the line as they could not convince the player of the move.
The biggest obstacle for the Turkish side will be convincing Hazard to make the move by letting go of his lucrative contract in Madrid. The chances are slim, but not impossible.
Hazard has made just three league appearances and one start for Ancelotti’s side this season in La Liga, a steep fall from last season’s 18 and seven respectively.
His last appearance for the team came back in January when Real Madrid faced Cacereno in the Copa del Rey. In La Liga however, he last played in September 2022 in a 4-1 win over Mallorca.

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.
