According to Pacojo on SER Deportivos, Real Madrid are ready to move for Borussia Dortmund sensation Jude Bellingham next summer, with president Florentino Perez prepared to offer €90 million for the midfielder.

Bellingham has emerged as one of the most sought-after midfielders in the game currently. The 19-year-old has made huge strides since making the jump to Dortmund from Birmingham City in 2020.

A permanent fixture in the centre of the park for the Black and Yellows, he has also captained the team on a few occasions despite his young age. Naturally, a host of big clubs from England have taken an interest.

But, Real Madrid are believed to be the best-placed team in the race to sign Bellingham. The Merengues have been working on a deal for the Englishman for a while now, having made him their priority target.

While he is not exactly a like-for-like replacement for Luka Modric, the teenager is being targeted to fill in the shoes that will be vacated by the Croatian legend in a year or two, given that he is already 37 years old.

Bellingham, for his part, is believed to have made it a priority to join Real Madrid as well, handing the Merengues a massive boost.

The 19-year-old is contracted with Dortmund until the summer of 2025, who will make it difficult for Real Madrid to sign him.

While widespread reports have indicated that it will take a sum of over €100 million to sign Bellingham, it seems like Real Madrid want to start the bidding at €90 million.

It is extremely unlikely that Dortmund would accept that figure, knowing that clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and City can offer much more.

Real Madrid’s teenage sensation to join camp on Wednesday, Brazilian core to return later

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
