Jude Bellingham has remained one of Real Madrid’s top targets as we approach the summer transfer window.

The Borussia Dortmund starlet has become the darling of European football this season, thanks to his exquisite performances for both club and country. It has resulted in him becoming the most sought-after prospect in the transfer market.

To that end, a recent report from Sky Sports suggests Real Madrid have positioned their offer to Bellingham to become one of the best in the world and even win the Ballon d’Or. They are trying to sell the youngster their plan to build a team around him.

Real Madrid have highlighted the player’s prospects in the Champions League and the opportunity to win silverware. They have not been shy in pointing out how Kylian Mbappe made the wrong decision to stay at PSG either.

The report cites a friend of the Bellingham family, who suggested: “The way to win Jude’s heart is selling the football plan to his head.”

Real Madrid are planning accordingly, trying to sell their football plan to the young midfielder rather than handing him a lucrative contract. However, the operation to sign the youngster will not be straightforward.

Real Madrid consider Manchester City to be a great threat in their pursuit of the Englishman, as the Premier League giants have appeared equally serious about signing the player.

Moreover, Bellingham is set to cost a fortune, with reports citing a figure of over €150 million. That would make it almost impossible for Real Madrid to afford the player in the summer, especially considering the fact that the club have other areas they need to reinforce.

Therefore, it will be interesting to see how this transfer saga takes shape in the coming weeks, as Bellingham considers the next big step in his career.

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
