Real Madrid are hot on the trail of Jude Bellingham over a transfer in the summer of 2023 in the hopes of revamping their midfielder completely.

Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde, and Aurelien Tchouameni will already form the heart of their midfield for the next decade or so, and someone like Bellingham can add immeasurable quality and competition to it.

That said, Madrid already know about the competition they will face in pursuit of the Englishman, and have set an upper price limit for his signing, according to a report published by SPORT.

They are not ready to offer anything more than what they paid for Tchouameni in the summer – €80 million + €20 million. That is far from what Borussia Dortmund want for the midfielder, though.

The Yellow and Black have valued the English midfielder around €150 million, nearly double what they received for Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland individually.

Madrid are not along in the race for Bellingham, either. Previous reports have quoted interest from Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool, but it seems unlikely that any of them apart from Chelsea will want to shell out €150 million on one player.

Bellingham has been in incredible form this season, and also has three goals and two assists to his name in the Bundesliga to back his performances up. The 19-year-old has been unplayable in the Champions League, too, with four goals and an assist in five games.

As England geared up to face Iran for the opening matchday of the FIFA World Cup, the Dortmund midfielder opened the scoring for the Three Lions in the 35th minute. If he can maintain his form, it seems unlikely that BVB will budge from their asking price.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
