Real Madrid’s rebuild is centred around its reserve of young talents, be it Federico Valverde, Vinicius Jr or Aurelien Tchouameni. Given that the World Cup is the biggest stage in the sport for young talents to announce their arrival, Los Blancos are keeping tabs on the performances of their targets during the competition.

Jude Bellingham started England’s game against the USMNT on Friday and played 70 minutes with a pass accuracy of over 90%. However, he was certainly far from his best at Al Bayt Stadium.

It is no secret that Real Madrid are strongly interested in signing the Englishman. However, Florian Plettenberg brings to light information about the midfielder’s transfer saga that could ring bells in Madrid.

According to the Sky Sport Germany journalist, three clubs are keenly interested in securing Bellingham’s services next summer. Real Madrid, Manchester City and Liverpool are involved in the three-way tussle, with Jurgen Klopp especially desperate to sign him.

Given the tough competition, Bellingham’s price tag has significantly bumped up too. Borussia Dortmund now ask close to €150 million for his signing, a number that would force even the best clubs to reconsider their interest.

Manchester United were monitoring the player earlier year but are now virtually out of the race owing to a plethora of reasons. While the Red Devils’ exclusion is a big relief, Liverpool now pose a serious threat to Los Blancos’ chances in the race.

At Real Madrid, Bellingham is seen as the final piece to complete the transition of the midfield department from the legendary trio of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric.

But it has been previously reported that Los Blancos would be unwilling to bid as high as €150 million to sign him. However, with his value soaring and top clubs vying to sign him, the Spanish capital club might have to loosen their purse strings or risk missing out on his capture.

Bellingham’s England fell to a tame draw against the USMNT last night but are still well-placed to top the group.

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.
