Jude Bellingham is one of the top names on the transfer wishlist of Real Madrid heading into the summer window. The 19-year-old has become one of the most in-demand commodities in the European transfer market after a sensational run of displays with Borussia Dortmund and England.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, among several others, are also interested in signing Bellingham in the upcoming summer transfer window.

But, according to fresh reports from SPORT1 in Germany, Real Madrid have intensified talks for the former Birmingham City midfield prodigy as they look to beat the competition for his signing.

The report highlights that Dortmund are also set to hold discussions with Bellingham’s entourage during the upcoming international break to assess what his intentions are regarding his future.

At the same time, Real Madrid, too, are upping the ante in their pursuit of the teenage sensation.

First contacts made, operation could cost €100-140m

Indeed, according to a report from AS, Real Madrid have made the first formal contacts to begin the process for the signing of Bellingham.

It is claimed that the Merengues see the 19-year-old as the ideal fit into the team as they look to continue revamping their midfield which began with the signings of Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.

To that end, a club representative recently flew to Germany to meet with Bellingham and his family. The objective of the meeting was to get to know the youngster first-hand while also transmitting to him the plans of the club and convincing him that Real Madrid is the best option for him.

It was also the intention of the Spanish giants to remove any doubts that the midfielder would have had regarding a possible move in the summer.

But, signing him will be anything but straightforward as Liverpool are going hard for his transfer as well. Indeed, While Los Blancos are intensifying their efforts to sign Bellingham, SPORT1 states that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side remain the favourites to sign the England international at this point.

AS adds that the transfer operation to sign Bellingham could cost between €100-140 million, with both clubs willing to pay the piper for the 19-year-old superstar.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
