The nickname Galacticos says a lot about Real Madrid’s history. The Spanish club have a well-known record of going after the biggest names in the transfer market and it is safe to say that the search for their next blockbuster signing is a perennial talk.

According to reports from Goal Espana, Los Blancos have identified Jude Bellingham as their next Galactico. The midfielder is thought to be the next big thing in English football and the race for his signing is not easy.

At the Santiago Bernabeu, Bellingham is seen as the perfect replacement for Luka Modric. The Croatian international is at the end of his illustrious career and the club do not have a like-for-like backup for his position.

While Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and Aurelien Tchouameni represent a new generation of midfielders, none of them provides the creative output that Bellingham promises.

The 19-year-old player made 32 Bundesliga appearances for Borrusia Dortmund last season, scoring three goals and providing eight assists. Moreover, he averaged close to 12 defensive actions per game for the German side.

Dortmund have slapped a price tag of €120 million for their young star. However, the bigger hurdle in his signing is the long list of clubs interested in him.

Premier League sides including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United are said to be in the running. While Real Madrid would be the most tempting offer, the player could prefer a move home to England.

The race for Bellingham’s signing will be long and hard fought. Nevertheless, one can be sure that Carlo Ancelotti’s side will leave no stone unturned to bring him to Madrid.

Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
