Journalist Jose Felix Diaz, while writing for MARCA, has affirmed that Real Madrid are about to finalize the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham for the next season.

The journalist writes that Madrid have been working on Bellingham’s acquisition for months and after operating in the shadows, the team from the Spanish capital city was practically left alone in the race while Liverpool and Manchester City slowly pulled out.

As far as Man City are concerned, they did have the capital advantage, but fortunately for Real Madrid, the midfielder has decided to play at the Santiago Bernabeu. 

Weeks ago, Liverpool pulled out of the competition due to financial constraints and now that it has been made known to City that Bellingham wants to represent Madrid, they too have bowed out without much of a fight.

So except for any last-minute setback, Diaz claims that Bellingham will play for Real Madrid next season and will sign a contract until 2029.

As for Dortmund, the Bundesliga team has already made peace with the fact that they will be without their star midfielder next season and although their asking price was €140 million, Madrid expect to close this operation at a slightly lower amount, between €100 and €120 million.

Earlier in the chase, Madrid had to fight hard to stay in the hunt. City, in particular, were their biggest nemesis as the Premier League side not only agreed to pay his transfer fee but they were also on line to pay a good amount of salary.

“If it’s for money, he won’t come to Madrid,” sources from Real Madrid assured at the beginning of the year.

Over the last few transfer windows, Real Madrid have shown that they are ready to give priority to young players and the perfect example of that are Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

Bellingham had always known that Real Madrid were in the race to sign him. He waited to see what would happen and now, an agreement is said to be close. Some reports have suggested that he will be offered a contract worth around €20 million per year.

Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed that the deal is indeed close to being completed, with Real Madrid now on the cusp of landing their priority summer transfer target.

Although Bellingham’s acquisition is not completely closed, Real Madrid are expected to make an official announcement only after the Bundesliga ends. This is because Dortmund are still in the hunt for the title and Madrid do not want to deter anyone from the track.

Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.

Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.

As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.

The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.

With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.

The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.

The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.
