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.

If there’s one thing to note about Karim Benzema’s career trajectory, it is that he has only improved over time.

Just last season, the French international enjoyed his finest individual campaign till date, with 44 goals and 15 assists in all competitions.

However, a question mark lingers around the club captain’s future, with his current contract set to expire next summer. A new update has emerged around the Los Blancos legend’s contractual situation, which is set to put a smile on every Madridista’s face.

As per the latest information provided by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano on the ‘Here We Go’ podcast, Karim Benzema’s contract renewal with the European champions is imminent.

Despite turning 35 in December this year, the veteran remains in the conversation for being the best striker in the world, alongside Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski.

So much so that the five-time Champions League winner is the favourite to win his first-ever Ballon d’Or later this year.

Whilst Benzema has suffered a knee injury this term, he has still managed to register three goals in five league starts.

With all signs pointing to the Los Merengues icon still being at the peak of his powers, it only makes sense why the club are intending on tying him down to a brand-new deal.

Alongside Vinicius Jr., Karim Benzema has managed to form the deadliest forward duo in Europe since the start of the 2021/22 campaign. And considering Real Madrid’s aim to triumph on multiple fronts for the upcoming seasons, it is vital that the experienced goalscorer stays put at the club.

Despite the successful coup of Aurelien Tchouameni, handing Benzema a fresh contract may be the club’s signing of the season.
