Real Madrid keeping special tabs on England midfielder during the World Cup – report

A recent report from Diario SPORT has offered a detailed report on the list of players Real Madrid are targeting in the ongoing FIFA World Cup.

It appears they are mainly targeting young players with the potential to become an asset for the club in the years to come, with Jude Bellingham emerging as the club’s priority.

The Borussia Dortmund starlet has recently starred in England’s 6-2 victory against Iran, notably scoring the all-important opener while playing a key role behind Jack Grealish’s goal at the end.

The report suggests Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on Bellingham’s progress in the World Cup. The Englishman is regarded as one of the most talented young players in world football and his price is expected to skyrocket after the end of the tournament.

Los Blancos have likely identified him as an ideal long-term replacement for Luka Modric, whose contract at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season.

Bellingham’s technical prowess, combined with his leadership and composure in tense situations make him a perfect target for Real Madrid as they look to shore up their ranks in the middle of the park. The youngster may also be an excellent partner for the young midfield duo of Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

However, luring Bellingham away from Dortmund will not be a walk in the park. The Black and Yellows are said to be holding out for a fortune for the services of the former Birmingham City starlet, whose value may easily reach up to €150 million by the end of the World Cup.

In addition, Real Madrid are set to face stiff competition from other European giants including Liverpool and Manchester City, who may even have an advantage due to the presence of Bellingham’s old Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland.

In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.

But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.

It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.

Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.

And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.

Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
