A recent report from The Telegraph has offered an update on the future of Jude Bellingham. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder remains one of the hottest prospects in the market right now, with multiple top dogs across Europe interested in his services.

Real Madrid are among the clubs keen on his signature as part of their plans to reinforce their midfield unit next season. The Whites are joined by Liverpool and Manchester City in the chase. Both the Premier League clubs wish to be in the conversation for the 19-year-old.

However, Real Madrid appear to be leading in the chase as they have ‘sold’ Bellingham with their tempting project of setting up the new midfield around young talents such as him, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Eduardo Camavinga.

Camavinga and Tchouameni are recent investments for Real Madrid that have proven to be effective. Camavinga is slowly maturing into a reliable performer while Tchouameni has done well to fill in the shoes of Casemiro so far.

With two pillars of the future midfield setup already established, Real Madrid seek to complete the trifecta with the addition of Bellingham.

The English international is not seen as a like-for-like alternative to Luka Modric. However, he has been identified as a replacement for the ageing Croatian due to his impact and influence on the pitch, coupled with the leadership qualities that have made him one of the hottest prospects in Europe.

Bellingham has indeed become an indispensable figure in the Borussia Dortmund midfield and it is only a matter of time until he joins a bigger club.

Real Madrid, to that end, are prepared to offer him the platform to perform at a bigger level. Recent reports indicate that he prefers to sign for Los Blancos as well.

However, given the player’s age and potential, he is bound to cost a fortune for the Whites, especially in a summer transfer window where they may also require the services of a new striker.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
