Real Madrid completed the signing of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund last month in a deal that cost the club €103 million with up to €30 million in bonuses. The race was hard-fought with Manchester City and Liverpool putting pressure on the Merengues throughout. 

Yet, there was seldom any doubt over his next destination. Bellingham was firm-minded over his desire to don the white colours, and it was unsurprisingly his wish that dictated the direction of his transfer.

The youngster is seen as the long-term successor to Luka Modric by many. Yet, he presents a unique profile to Carlo Ancelotti in terms of delivering not only in midfield but also in front of goal.

The 20-year-old after all scored eight goals and provided four assists for his former club in last season’s Bundesliga with a strong presence in the final third. Further, he averaged 1.1 key passes per game and created eight big chances.

Los Blancos begin their preseason preparations later today at Valdebebas, with nine first-team players and several names from the Castilla prepared to join. Bellingham is one of the first-team stars prepared to join training from day one.

Speaking to MARCA before his first-ever training session for the Merengues, the English star did not hold back his excitement over starting a new chapter in his career and said,

“I’m ready to win.” 

Bellingham then provided an update on the knee injury that plagued him towards the end of last season and revealed whether it would impact his training sessions beginning on Monday.

“I’m ready to play, the knee is in perfect condition.”

Finally, the midfielder took a moment to show his excitement over playing for the Real Madrid faithful and stepping onto the grasses at Santiago Bernabeu.

“I’m looking forward to playing at the Bernabéu for all Real Madrid fans.”

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
