Real Madrid very close to completing first signing of the season
Real Madrid have really stepped on the gas in their hunt for Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham in recent days. The deal appears to be closer than ever before to nearing completion as the two clubs continue their negotiations over the transfer fee.
According to reports from 90min, Real Madrid ad Dortmund are not far away from reaching an agreement over the player’s transfer. There is a very narrow gap between the Germans’ asking price and what Los Blancos offer, and an agreement is not far away.
Yesterday, sources revealed the Merengues’ first official bid submitted to Dortmund for Bellingham. The offer was said to include a proposed fee of €100 million with a further sum included in variables.
The gross transfer fee could thus jump close to the €130 million mark with the add-ons included. Considering that the Germans hoped for €150 million for their young star, there is indeed a small bridge to gap.
The CEO and Chief Negotiator of Real Madrid travelled to Dortmund earlier this week to finalise the deal and it appears that he has made progress.
With the player having a complete agreement with the club and Dortmund on the verge of accepting Los Blancos’ bid, one could expect an official confirmation of the deal before the summer transfer window.
Bellingham is said to be very excited about the turning of a fresh page under Carlo Ancelotti.
The midfielder rejected Dortmund’s €14 million worth renewal offer and even turned his back on Manchester City’s tempting proposal for a move to Santiago Bernabeu. The sporting project in Madrid, reports said, appealed to Bellingham the most.
The youngster is first expected to feature in a white jersey during Real Madrid’s preseason tour that was recently announced. Alongside Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, Bellingham will be a mainstay in the club’s midfield for years to come.

Real Madrid winger has two future destinations on table for next season
Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.
Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.
According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.
Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.
After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.
Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.
The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.
However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.
Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
