The race to sign Jude Bellingham is seemingly hotting up as the midfielder continues to mesmerise onlookers with his performances at the highest level of football.

The Borussia Dortmund starlet most recently starred in England’s opening game in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, scoring the opener in a 6-2 victory over Iran. He was hailed as one of the top performers of the game.

Bellingham’s blazing performances for club and country have catapulted him into becoming one of the hottest prospects in the market, with Real Madrid and other major clubs across Europe keen on securing his services at the end of the season.

According to a recent report from Matt Law (h/t Madrid Zone), Real Madrid, along with Liverpool, are on the driver’s seat in the race to sign Bellingham. But Chelsea have also entered the race for the 19-year-old, while Manchester City are also in the running.

Real Madrid, for their part, have likely identified the former Birmingham City starlet as a potential long-term replacement for Luka Modric, whose contract at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season.

Bellingham, to that end, could prove to be a smart long-term investment for the club. The Englishman may even build a formidable partnership with other big-money midfield investments such as Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.

Borussia Dortmund, though, are not going to make it easy for Los Blancos or for any other interested party in their quest to sign Bellingham.

Although the German giants are preparing for his exit, they are expected to hold out for a fortune for the services of the Englishman, especially with interest in his services growing with each passing day.

The teenage whizkid was indeed valued at around €100 million before the start of the World Cup. But it appears he could end up with a valuation closer to €150 million by the end of the tournament.

Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
