With the January transfer window now out of the way, the focus shifts to the summer and one player who is set to dominate the headlines over the next few months is Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Real Madrid target Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old is set to be one of the most coveted players in the market for the summer, with several top clubs keeping their eyes on him.

Real Madrid, for one, are one of Bellingham’s strongest suitors but are facing stern competition from Liverpool, while Manchester City also remain in the race.

There have been speculations that the teenage sensation would be prepared to snub interest from England to secure a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, journalist Jorge C Picon is reporting that Bellingham’s family members are leaning towards the midfielder moving to the Premier League next summer instead of Spain.

The report states that while the 19-year-old continues to favour a move to Real Madrid, members of his family feel that a transfer to the Premier League would be better for his career as the adaptation would be easier.

They are of the opinion that Bellingham still has plenty of time in his career to join Real Madrid in the future, considering he is just 19 years old.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are also not willing to go down without a fight and wish to keep Bellingham at the club beyond the 2022/23 season.

To that end, the Black and Yellows are prepared to offer him a new contract that would make him the highest-paid player in the squad.

However, that is unlikely to sway the Englishman’s mind, who is ready for his next challenge in the summer.

While the possibility of a transfer to the Premier League might be gaining momentum, Real Madrid are not wavering their interest in Bellingham and believe that they have the ‘weapons’ needed to pull off his signing before next season.

Competing against the might of the Premier League will not be easy, but the project Los Blancos are offering the midfielder, as well as his own preference to play at the Bernabeu could end up being key.

The operation, as per the report, could cost as high as €130 million including variables.

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.
