Every summer, Real Madrid are linked with at least one big-money signing to beef up their squad and ensure that they stay competitive. In recent years, Eden Hazard, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga have come in as such reinforcements.

The offices in Madrid never rest and the administration are already contemplating the big transfer for the 2023 summer transfer window. As it stands, that name seems to be Jude Bellingham.

MARCA report that talks and discussions regarding the English midfielder began a year ago. Now, the discussions have intensified and the club is discussing the possible economics of the deal.

Los Blancos do not view the youngster as a direct replacement for either Toni Kroos or Luka Modric. Bellingham is seen as a player who can be the centre-piece of the team for the next decade as a member of the team’s next dynamic midfield core.

The club will look to pull off the operation using the same formula that they used for Tchouameni and Camavinga in recent years. It is expected that the transfer fee involved will be above the €100 million mark, but the nine-digit figure does not deter Los Blancos’ plans.

One of the biggest reasons for the sudden boost in the progress of talks is Real Madrid’s scouting genius Juni Calafat. The mastermind is personally handling the midfielder’s signing and is said to be a fan of his profile.

This season, Bellingham has started all eight of Borussia Dortmund’s games, providing one assist in the process.

His numbers in the Champions League are more impressive as he scored three goals and assisted one in just three games. Recently, he became the youngest captain to score a goal in UCL history at the age of just 19.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
