Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham is one of the most sought-after players in the transfer market. The 19-year-old has enjoyed a tremendous rise in stature over the past couple of years and is rightly regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the game.

Liverpool have shown strong interest in Bellingham while Manchester United have also been monitoring the Englishman. But, according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent, Real Madrid are increasingly confident that they will land their priority midfield target next summer.

The report states that Los Blancos are pitching themselves to Bellingham as the ‘best place for youngsters in Europe’.

Real Madrid are pointing to the success that the likes of Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Vinicius Junior, Eder Militao and Rodrygo Goes have achieved, while also signalling towards the recent captures of Aurelien Tchouameni and Endrick to convince Bellingham.

With that, the Merengues wish to persuade Bellingham that they ‘represent the future of the game’ and that the Bernabeu will be the right place for him to hone his talents and develop into a world-class player.

The 19-year-old is all but certain to depart Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. And with Real Madrid putting on the charm offensive to secure his services, they are increasingly confident about landing their man.

Los Blancos have also pointed out to Bellingham how they won the Champions League title last season despite going through a rebuilding phase. It is a strategy for them to undermine state-owned clubs like Manchester City and PSG, who also hold an interest in the midfielder.

The report further suggests that Dortmund will demand a transfer fee of around £130 million (€147 million) for their prized asset.

As things stand, all signs point towards Real Madrid landing their primary target. But nothing is certain at this point and only time will tell if the deal goes through come summer.

Real Madrid’s pursuit of 18-year-old prodigy dependent on captain’s future – report

Real Madrid will step up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro if Nacho decides to leave the club, according to a report by Agustin Martin in AS.

The situation surrounding Nacho is becoming increasingly uncertain. While he has received a lucrative offer from Al Ittihad, the move has reportedly hit a roadblock.

It is said that Nacho feels that his role in the team has not progressed under coach Ancelotti and his absence from the starting lineup in important matches, like the first leg of the quarterfinals against Manchester City and the Clasico has made him consider leaving the club. 

Furthermore, the recoveries of Eder Militao and David Alaba, along with the presence of Antonio Rudiger and the potential return of Rafa Marin have also influenced his thoughts about his future.

Interestingly, it is not just his teammates’ presence that has made Nacho think about leaving. There are strong rumours about Real Madrid signing Leny Yoro as well. 

The plan is to sign Yoro either this summer and possibly loan him out if Nacho stays, or in 2025 to join the first team. 

If Nacho decides to leave, it would pave the way for Yoro to join immediately. This decision depends on Nacho’s willingness to stay for another year or take up one of the offers he has received. 

This means the potential signing of Yoro hinges on Nacho’s decision. If the club captain chooses to leave, Yoro could join Real Madrid this year or next. 

For what it is worth, Yoro would strengthen a defensive lineup where most players, except for Militao and possibly Rafa Marín, are over thirty years old. But for this to happen, Nacho must decide whether to stay at Real Madrid or open the door for Yoro’s arrival.
