According to Daily Mail’s latest report, Real Madrid are ready to do whatever it takes to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham in the summer so much so that they now see themselves ‘in the running’.

There are reports in the media that claim that Real have intensified talks with the midfielder and his representatives to an extent that all key figures of the transfer have been coordinated internally.

Bellingham, 19, is rightly expected to leave Germany at the end of the season despite the fact that Dortmund want him to continue for at least another year. 

For now, any move to acquire the England midfielder is set to cost €150 million and as reported before, Manchester City’s professional relationship with the German team currently puts them ahead in the race.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, Daily Telegraph says they are willing to pay €115 million for the midfielder as a guaranteed fee and are even prepared to go as high as €150 million, although with potential add-ons. 

As it turns out, the conditions of these add-ons are going to be quite challenging, possibly having to win the UEFA Champions League and even the Ballon d’Or.

It is believed that Bellingham wants to join a team with a good sporting project and in the end, his decision will mean a lot. For what it is worth, the youngster’s resolution to join Real Madrid will depend a lot on the futures of Toni Kross and Luka Modric. 

If the duo continues, the odds will decrease, but even if one of them leaves, Madrid will have the advantage. In all fairness, one can expect Madrid to go all out for the midfielder in the summer as they do not really have a strong alternative or a midfield strategy in place, at least until today.

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.
