Real Madrid and FC Barcelona’s legendary rivalry has produced some iconic matches over the decades.

However, the competition between these two giants of Spanish football extends beyond the field. They’ve also clashed in the transfer market and other off-field arenas.

After defeating Barcelona in the most recent Clasico, Real Madrid appears ready to surpass their bitter rivals once more, this time in the competition to recruit a young prodigy.

Mayorau favors Madrid over Barcelona

Indeed, as per MARCA an immensely talented 12-year-old prospect named Aliaksei Mayorau has lured the attention of many elite clubs and has shown a preference toward Real Madrid.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have been attempting to sign the child of Belarusian descent who is making waves in Catalonia.

Aliaksei Mayorau is still playing 7-a-side, but his style of play and natural ability to rattle the back of the net have drawn interest from not just Spanish teams, but all over Europe.

Barcelona made every effort to persuade the boy’s family that the Catalan club was where he was meant to be. In fact, this season, Aliaksei even watched one of Barça’s games from the Montjuïc box.

But Mayorau and his entourage are fully committed to Real Madrid’s project, with all other interested parties unable to land his signature.

As for the youngster’s signing with Madrid, there are no issues related to age or origin since he resides in Spain, allowing him to switch teams without complications.

However, the Merengues have requested all relevant documentation to avoid any unforeseen issues. The club is extensive with these details when signing a minor.

This is not the first time Real Madrid and Barcelona have battled it out for the same targets as examples of players like Endrick, Arda Guler, and Pablo Torre spring to mind.

It has been a special debut season for Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid.

Since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million, plus add-ons, last summer, the 20-year-old sensation has become an instant hit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite his form declining a bit in the second half of the season, Bellingham has racked up returns of 23 goals and 12 assists from 41 games in all competitions.

A special game for Bellingham

Having won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup, Bellingham now has the chance to end the season in the most epic ways possible by lifting the UEFA Champions League, against his former club, in his homeland.

As such, Saturday’s UCL final at Wembley, against Dortmund, is set to be a special one for the young phenom, and he acknowledged as much during an interview today.

“It’s a very special game for me but I’ll have to put feelings aside. It’s been a great season, they’ve made me feel very welcome and I’ve enjoyed playing football with them,” said Bellingham, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

When asked if he had been in touch with any of his former Dortmund teammates ahead of Saturday’s showpiece event, Bellingham replied:

“I’ve spoken to Sancho, we said we’d meet there. He took me under his wing when I came to Dortmund and that meant a lot to me.”

On how Real Madrid can win the game

Earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he had sought any information from Bellingham to prepare a strategy to beat Borussia Dortmund.

The midfielder himself was asked by the media as to how Real Madrid can get past his former club at Wembley this weekend, to which he replied:

“To win we will have to play at our maximum level, if we are at that level it is very difficult for our opponents. The staff are sure to do a great job analysing Dortmund, I trust them 100 per cent.”

Stressing how it is a dream for him to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, Bellingham remarked:

“Winning the Champions League is the reason I’m here, I always dreamed of playing for this team, and this team is linked to the Champions League. I want to be a small part of their history.”
