Real Madrid consider offering midfield prodigy plus €100 million to sign Bellingham
As per a huge claim made by Sky Germany, Real Madrid are considering making a player-plus-cash offer to secure the signing of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.
The 19-year-old England midfielder has emerged as a priority target for Real Madrid heading into the summer transfer window.
With Luka Modric and Toni Kroos’ futures unclear, it becomes imperative that Los Blancos add a top-class midfielder and Bellingham has emerged as their primary option.
However, Dortmund value the England ace around €150 million, a fee that is deemed high by the La Liga champions.
Reports had suggested that Real Madrid could look to offer €100 million in fixed fee and throw in add-ons to get closer to the German club’s valuation.
But, Sky Germany is reporting that the Merengues are now considering the possibility of sending a player as part of the deal apart from offering cash, with Eduardo Camavinga emerging as the star who could be traded to Dortmund.
The 20-year-old Frenchman has not had it easy at Real Madrid with Carlo Ancelotti not seemingly trusting him completely, which has been reflected in the lack of starts as well as the number of half-time substitutions in the matches he has started.
But, amid recent reports of Arsenal showing an interest in Camavinga, it was claimed that Real Madrid see the former Rennes wonderkid as a key part of the present and the future of the club.
Meanwhile, the young midfield prodigy is also believed to be happy at the Santiago Bernabeu even though he has not played as much as he would like.
So, the thought of Camavinga being included in the operation to sign Bellingham does come out as a bit puzzling, especially considering that it would weaken Real Madrid’s midfield further, amid uncertainty surrounding Modric and Kroos’ situations.

Real Madrid have not ‘given up’ on Karim Benzema’s renewal yet – report
The cloud of uncertainty over Karim Benzema’s future has served as a major headache for the Real Madrid board, as they kickstart their team planning ahead of the new season.
Recent reports claim the Frenchman is strongly considering a move to Saudi Arabia, after receiving a lucrative €150 million offer from Al Ittihad. He was close to renewing his contract at Santiago Bernabeu not too long ago, but it appears the tables have turned lately.
Nevertheless, Real Madrid are yet to give up on Benzema and still harbour hopes of renewing his contract in the coming weeks, reports Alfredo Matilla.
The Spanish journalist suggests Real Madrid have not closed the file on Benzema. Coach Carlo Ancelotti has recently met the forward to clarify his future and it appears the club are set to do everything they can to keep hold of the player.
Benzema’s departure, after all, could put the club in a major dilemma, where they must either sign a top-class striker or settle for a low-cost alternative for the entirety of next season.
Harry Kane has been earmarked as the ideal replacement for Benzema. But his acquisition could potentially jeopardise Real Madrid’s bid to sign either Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe in 2024. The club have also faced difficulties negotiating with Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman.
As far as the low-cost options are concerned, Real Madrid are interested in Roberto Firmino, who will become a free agent in the summer.
However, the Brazilian international is not the most productive striker around and his struggles in front of goal could put more pressure on players like Vinicius Junior next season.
Real Madrid, therefore, will hope to keep hold of Benzema’s services for another year. Unfortunately, though, the player has given a cold response so far and left training early, without speaking too much.
So it will be interesting to see whether or not the veteran striker opts to remain at Bernabeu for another year.

Real Madrid should not do the mistake by selling edouado camavinga or by adding him in the deal of Jude bellingham cos both are great prospect and they can play together at real Madrid and pls don’t exchange camavinga for Bellingham.

Ancelotti and Florentino will be mad if they let Camavinga go.

You people are running out of senses if you plan to do so. Why not Eden Hazard, Asenso, Nacho, Mariano, etc. Camavinga is the future of real Madrid
