Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has again reacted to Jude Bellingham’s future and speculations linking him to a move to Santiago Bernabeu in the coming summer.

The former midfielder has mentioned earlier that Dortmund have had no offer on the table for Bellingham just yet. In a recent interaction, the sporting director has suggested that Dortmund could be hard to negotiate with, even for Real Madrid.

“Jude Bellingham is a player who cannot be replaced. In the state he is & with his potential, he is an incredible player. He’s not replaceable, not even with a lot of money,” Kehl said (h/t MARCA).

Formerly of Birmingham City, Bellingham has enjoyed unprecedented success since joining Dortmund in 2020. He has featured in 132 competitive matches for the club and has been involved in almost 50 goals.

Due to his success, it was suggested that Dortmund would demand a hefty price for the services of the Englishman. There were even reports of figures far exceeding the €100 million mark.

Kehl echoed a similar attitude, adding, “If Jude leaves, it will be possible for us to get a lot of money according to market prices.”

The comments of the Borussia Dortmund director could make life difficult for Real Madrid, even though they have the approval of the player. With the German outfit unwilling to sell the youngster on a cut-price deal, Real Madrid may have no choice but to break the bank this coming summer.

This, in turn, could impact the club’s activity in the transfer market, potentially ruining their plans to sign an additional midfielder in the form of Gabri Veiga, who was valued at around €30 million this summer.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
