German media outlet BILD report that Jude Bellingham’s father Mark was in Madrid last week for talks with Real Madrid over his son’s transfer. The Borussia Dortmund star has no shortage of options on his table, but it increasingly appears that he is tending towards a move to Spain.

The English international is Real Madrid’s dream target for the upcoming transfer window as they look to solidify their midfield core for the next decade.

Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde already represent the new generation of young stars, and Bellingham would arrive as the final piece in the puzzle.

The 19-year-old midfielder is Dortmund’s most highly prized asset, and the German side hope to make a fortune from his sale. He arrived at Signal Iduna Park for €23 million in 2020 and is now expected to move out for over five times the value.

Die Schwarzgelben want at least €150 million for their midfield star according to the same outlet. However, Los Blancos refuse to match the valuation.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are prepared to shell out big money for the player but have set a limit on how far they are willing to go. They will reach the nine-figure mark, but will not cave into Dortmund’s demands.

If Luka Modric and Toni Kroos renew for a further season, there is no urgent need for Real Madrid to sign Bellingham at that price.

The player has a contract until 2025 with the German side and could be available for a better price next year, provided he does not sign a new deal.

It is only the competition from Liverpool and Manchester City that pushes the European Champions to splash the cash immediately.

The teenager scored four goals and provided an assist in seven UEFA Champions League games this season. However, his side fell short to Chelsea in a controversial second leg earlier this week.

As for his future, while the aforementioned report claims that Bellingham is leaning towards a move to Spain, only time will tell if Real Madrid are able to secure his services.

Real Madrid trio in danger of missing Villarreal game due to suspension

As Real Madrid look to restart the campaign following the end of the international break, all focus will be on the upcoming El Clasico in Copa del Rey on April 5.

However, before they take on their arch-rivals for a fourth time this year, Real Madrid must see off the challenge from Real Valladolid in La Liga on Sunday.

Given Barcelona’s 12-point advantage at the top of the table, La Liga appears to be a lost cause for Real Madrid right now. But that is no excuse for Carlo Ancelotti’s men to appear complacent, as they look to push for a late title charge.

However, heading into this contest, three Real Madrid players proceed with caution as they are running the risk of missing out on the next league game against Villarreal due to yellow cards.

The three players in question are Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Carvajal, and Dani Ceballos. All three of these players have picked up four yellow cards in La Liga this term. Therefore, picking up another booking against Valladolid will rule them out in the next game.

Camavinga, in particular, has been a vital part of the Real Madrid squad since the turn of the year, impressing onlookers with his performances and versatility.

Carvajal, too, is a critical option at right-back and his experience could go a long way in helping Real Madrid end the league campaign on a positive note. Not to mention, the club lack the services of a reliable alternative, which has led to links with Reece James this coming summer.

Ceballos, on the other hand, has been one of the emerging stars this year. The midfielder’s performances have been excellent lately, and he would not want to lose any momentum by picking up a suspension ahead of the important Villarreal game next week.
