After weeks of maintaining its status as the headline on major media outlets, the coverage of Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid took a back-foot in recent weeks. Yet, the sudden silence was not owing to a breakdown of talks.

Real Madrid have been in direct negotiations with Borussia Dortmund behind the scenes. After hours of deliberation and discussion, there is positive news for the Merengues.

According to reports from MARCA, Bellingham’s signing is all but confirmed. Only the last few details remain before the deal is officially closed.

As it stands, it appears that the midfielder will cost Real Madrid €100 million exclusive of add-ons. The aforementioned bonuses will be based on the number of games the youngster plays and his performance. Though there were talks of reducing the fee by including players in a swap deal, BVB never considered it a viable option.

The Merengues’ administration met up with Borussia Dortmund earlier this week in Germany and the two clubs have gone as far as to agree a deal in principle. Bellingham’s signing could thus be announced as early as next week.

The report further adds that several of Europe’s elite submitted offers for the young prodigy. In fact, multiple offers were superior to that put forth by Real Madrid. Yet, Bellingham was fixed on his dream of joining the Spanish giants and sacrificed economic gain for a place in Carlo Ancelotti’s team.

Bellingham will not be amongst the club’s highest-paid players next season. In fact, it would take him several years to reach a competitive figure on that front according to the terms agreed.

The Englishman will likely travel with the team for their preseason training and would hope to make an instant impact at his new club. After all, the competition in midfield at the club is very steep.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
