Carlo Ancelotti is already prioritising the future of Real Madrid’s midfield. The manager has begun benching Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for the youngsters of late, and it is clear that the transition the fans feared most is now upon them.

As the baton is passed to the next generation, there is a need for a new advanced midfielder to complement the profiles of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde. The player best placed to take that spot is Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham.

According to MARCA, there is real optimism at Santiago Bernabeu’s offices over the Englishman’s transfer. The people at Valdebebas now believe that his acquisition in the summer is more than possible. 

Los Blancos have been in constant contact with Bellingham’s entourage in recent months. With negotiations with the player quite advanced, only talks with Borussia Dortmund remain to be settled.

Real Madrid were initially considering withdrawing from the race due to the German side’s economic demands. However, the youngster’s performance at the Qatar World Cup helped change that view, and Florentino Perez has led the pack ever since.

Neither Liverpool, Chelsea, nor Manchester City can be counted out of the equation, but it has been reported that Bellingham’s heart lies in Madrid. A fee of €150 million has been rumoured for his signature.

In 16 Bundesliga appearances so far this season, the 19-year-old has scored four goals and provided three assists for the men in black and yellow. He has created four big chances and averages 1.1 key passes every ninety minutes.

At Real Madrid, the teenager could be a like-for-like replacement for Luka Modric who is in the twilight of his career at 37 years of age. With there being a lot of optimism around the Real Madrid offices, it remains to be seen if they can pull off his signing.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
