A 19-year-old Jude Bellingham was the captain for Borussia Dortmund when they face Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League this midweek. The youngster orchestrated the game with a goal and an assist as Dortmund bagged a 4-1 victory.

The performance was a testament to Bellingham’s leadership quality, along with the charm and technical prowess he offers to the table. His performances have not gone unnoticed either, with Real Madrid among the list of top clubs interested in his services.

In light of his performance against Sevilla, Telegraph has dropped an update on his future suggesting Real Madrid are prepared to launch an offensive, in an attempt to sign the midfielder in the summer of 2023.

The report states the reigning Spanish champions are hoping to make an appeal to Bellingham, giving him the “once in a lifetime opportunity” to join the club.

Real Madrid have already identified the young Englishman as the priority target in 2023. They are looking to make him their next “Young Galactico”. They further seek to reach an understanding with the player before his value goes up further in the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Los Blancos do have a packed midfield at the moment, especially after the summer arrival of Aurelien Tchouameni. However, with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos currently in the final phase of their respective careers, they are in desperate need of reinforcements.

Bellingham could be an ideal option, given his technical and leadership qualities that could go a long way in helping the club replace Modric.

However, luring Bellingham away from Dortmund will not be a walk in the park. Although Real Madrid only forecast a value of around €100 million, the midfielder’s value could be much higher. Not to mention, the European champs are set to face stiff competition, with Liverpool and Manchester City also tracking his situation at Signal Iduna Park.

Real Madrid are considering terminating the contract of €115 million flop – report

Eden Hazard is one of the Real Madrid players who have vowed to stay at Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his contract. His current deal at the club expires in 2024.

Even though the Real Madrid star has been courted by several MLS and even the Saudi Arabian clubs, the forward has shown no desire to leave Bernabeu just yet. He wants to stay at the club even though Los Blancos are ready to sanction his sale this summer.

In the midst of this drama, a fresh report from Alfredo Matilla suggests Real Madrid are now considering terminating the contract of Eden Hazard.

This comes shortly after a report which claimed that a Real Madrid player who is not out of contract this summer, may shockingly leave the club this summer. Ferland Mendy was a potential candidate, but it appears Hazard has not been ruled out either.

The Belgian international has offered very little since joining from Chelsea in 2019 for a record-breaking €115 million fee. His spell at the Bernabeu has been marred by injuries, while the player has also struggled to impress when given the opportunities.

Inside the Real Madrid dressing room, there is both grief and resentment towards Belgian, who has remained steadfast in his decision to stay at the club. He has a good standing in the team due to his professionalism, but the Real Madrid bosses are determined to get rid of him this summer.

Hazard, after all, is the highest-paid player in the squad and his departure could open up a chunk of the space in the salary mass. But it must be noted that Real Madrid would have to spend a fortune to terminate Hazard’s contract.

Hence, it will be interesting to see whether or not Los Blancos end up splashing the cash in order to get Hazard out of their books this coming summer.
