Jude Bellingham once again acted as the enforcer when Borussia Dortmund swept aside Hertha Berlin 4-1 in the Bundesliga. The win helped them get level on points with Bayern Munich at the top of the league table.

Although the Englishman did not start the game, he played a key role in the second half, offering more zest in the Dortmund midfield. He offered just the kind of qualities Real Madrid require at the moment, which is why it is no surprise that the Dortmund starlet has become the top target for the Spanish champions for the coming summer.

To that end, Jan Aage Fjortoft has recently offered an update on the future of Bellingham. The Norwegian suggests Los Blancos have yet to submit an official offer to Dortmund for the services of their prized midfield asset, who has become a star attraction in the market.

Bellingham is indeed courted by some of the biggest clubs across Europe, including Liverpool and Manchester City.

Liverpool’s humiliation at the hands of Real Madrid in the Champions League yesterday should go a long way in deterring Bellingham. Manchester City, meanwhile, could be a probable suitor for the youngster, especially with Ilkay Gundogan being linked with a summer move to Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund, for their part, are not likely to get in the way of Bellingham should he opt to depart Signal Iduna Park at the end of the season. But they are expected to hold out for a hefty figure for the Englishman, who is likely to be rated in excess of €100 million.

This has become an obstacle for Real Madrid. Even though the Spanish giants have the economic provision to make a move for Bellingham, they need to make major adjustments to the first-team in order to go through with the transfer.

Therefore, it will be interesting to see how things transpire over the coming months, as far as the future of Jude Bellingham is concerned.

Although Antonio Rudiger has had success since joining Real Madrid last summer, the club are in need of more depth and players that can form the backbone of the defensive unit in the years to come.

As part of their plans, Real Madrid are prioritising a move for Josko Gvardiol in the coming summer, reports 90 Min.

The outlet suggests Gvardiol will be one of the most wanted prospects in the market, with both Real Madrid and Manchester City eyeing a move for the Croatian international come the end of the season.

Formerly of Dinamo Zagreb, Gvardiol has enjoyed immense success since his move to the Bundesliga in 2021. He has impressed onlookers with his skill, organisation and discipline, which, coupled with his versatility, make him an appealing target for any European giant.

Gvardiol was also one of the top performers at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, helping Croatia finish third in the competition. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid among the clubs who have been keeping an eye on the defender for a while now.

However, signing Gvardiol will be a tricky task for Los Blancos. The player still has a long-term contract at Leipzig and could cost up to €85 million, as reported by 90 Min. Not to mention, the competition from Man City could be significant.

Real Madrid have no shortage of alternatives, though, with the club notably closely monitoring Portuguese defensive whizkid Antonio Silva, among others. So it will be interesting to see how the Spanish giants approach the market in this coming summer.
