According to a sensational claim made by Tomas Gonzalez-Martin El Debate, Borussia Dortmund president Hans-Joachim Watzke has given Real Madrid permission to talk to Jude Bellingham ahead of his possible move to the Spanish capital club.

The report further claims that Watzke shares a great relationship with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and this is the reason why he personally wants his midfielder to join Los Blancos in the first place.

Now, Madrid do understand that signing Bellingham is not going to be a cakewalk mostly because they are not the only team in the chase. Paris Saint-Germain have publicly expressed their interest while the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are said to be involved too.

So in order to carry out the operation quickly, the Madrid management is ready to offer €100 million in transfer fee plus €20 million in bonuses for Bellingham. Apart from that, somewhere around €15 million have been kept reserved as commission.

Borussia Dortmund are aware of the figures Madrid are offering, but at present, Liverpool and Man City are willing to pay up to €135 million as well so the player’s personal preference now becomes the key.

As for Liverpool, they are also said to be exploring the option of Enzo Fernandez after signing Cody Gakpo from PSV, meaning that it will take a lot of convincing for Jurgen Klopp’s team if they are indeed serious about signing Bellingham.

Real Madrid’s position is very different, to say the least. Everyone is aware of the fact that both Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are in their twilight years, meaning that securing a replacement is important.

For that, Madrid’s proposal to Bellingham is a lucrative six-year deal that can be extended by another twelve months, with an annual salary of €11 million plus bonuses.

As far as the player is concerned, he is believed to have given his preference to a move to Real Madrid. His mentors and assistants have advised him the same and the only thing that remains at the moment is a formal agreement.

A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has revealed that Lille have turned down a €50 million offer from Liverpool for Leny Yoro, a young player who is also a target for Real Madrid.

Yoro, who is just 18 years old, has caught the attention of several major European clubs during this summer’s transfer window. 

Among these clubs are Liverpool, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain, all eager to sign the talented centre-back from Lille. However, they are all competing with Real Madrid, who are also very interested in Yoro.

According to sources in England, Lille recently rejected Liverpool’s offer of €50 million for the player. 

While this amount is close to what Lille have been asking for, they have set a price tag of €60 million and are in no mood to lower their demands.

The main challenge for clubs interested in Yoro is that many believe he has already decided to join Real Madrid

Despite this, Real Madrid have not made a formal move to negotiate with Lille, as they are unwilling to meet the €60 million asking price.

In the meantime, other clubs hoping to sign Yoro are relying on the chance that he might reconsider and choose a different team over Real Madrid. 

Liverpool, in particular, have been doubtful about their chances of securing Yoro, mainly because of Real Madrid’s interest.

Yoro wants Real Madrid

Discussions about Yoro have been widespread recently, with many suggesting that the player is aware of Real Madrid’s interest and is waiting for them to prioritise his transfer. 

However, the main sticking point remains Lille’s demand and Real Madrid, knowing that Yoro’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, are not willing to pay that much.

Given that Yoro has only one year left on his contract after this summer, Real Madrid are reluctant to enter a bidding war and pay more than they think is reasonable. 

Reports indicate that Real Madrid are not prepared to offer more than €30 million for the player.
