It is no secret that Real Madrid are pushing hard to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window of this year.

The 19-year-old has established himself as one of the finest young midfielders in Europe and that status was further reaffirmed after his performances at the FIFA World Cup 2022 for the England national team.

Real Madrid have been hot on the trails of Bellingham for a long time now and have been working hard for his signing.

Los Blancos are facing stiff competition in pursuit of the former Birmingham City starlet, although recent reports suggest that Liverpool have decided to look at cheaper alternatives, clearing the way for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Now, transfer insider Jan Aage Fjortoft is reporting that he has been told by a source that Borussia Dortmund have accepted that Bellingham will leave in the summer and are ready to sell the midfield prodigy for a sum of €120 million.

Fjortoft also states that the Black and Yellows do not intend to part ways with Bellingham this month but an offer of around €150 million could tempt them to consider a sale in January.

Real Madrid, for their part, are unlikely to sign any players in the winter, as confirmed by manager Ancelotti recently. So, any move for Bellingham would only take place in the summer, although talks over a transfer are expected to be initiated this month.

Recent reports had suggested that Dortmund would be demanding a total package of €140 million for their prized asset.

But as per the information from Fjortoft’s insider, the Bundesliga giants would be open to accepting a lower sum of €120 million for Bellingham in the summer, which will be seen as a boost by the Merengues.

With Toni Kroos mulling retirement and Luka Modric in the final phase of his career, it is imperative for Real Madrid to sign Bellingham. And based on recent reports, it seems like the Spanish capital club could be closing in on the capture of the England star.

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
