There has been a lot of noise over the future of Jude Bellingham lately. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has become a subject of interest for various clubs across Europe, including Real Madrid.

The reigning European champions are targeting the Englishman as a potential long-term replacement for Luka Modric, whose current deal at the club expires at the end of the season.

However, luring Bellingham away from Dortmund will not be a straightforward task for Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are facing immense competition from other clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Manchester City.

And if reports from Florian Plettenberg are to be believed, Manchester United, too, are now keeping tabs on the midfielder. In fact, the Premier League giants have identified the Dortmund starlet as their No. 1 target for 2023, with Erik ten Hag particularly keen on his services.

Manchester United were close to signing Bellingham during his time at Birmingham City. The youngster was even provided with a guided tour of the stadium, but the move did not materialise, as the 19-year-old opted to move to Dortmund.

Since then, the youngster has exploded into superstardom and is considered as one of the most gifted young players on the planet.

Despite missing out two years ago, Manchester United are determined to sign Bellingham in the coming summer. However, the likelihood of them bagging Bellingham remains low, primarily due to competition from other clubs.

Teams such as Real Madrid and Liverpool are indeed hot on Bellingham’s heels and could splash the cash for him in 2023.

However, with the midfielder likely to be priced at €150 million, it will be interesting to see whether the Whites can prevail in the race, ahead of money-making machines such as Man City and PSG.

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.
