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.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
