Real Madrid are keen to close the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Manchester City target Jude Bellingham in May and make the transfer official soon after the hypothetical UEFA Champions League final in June.

This claim comes from journalist Francisco Jose Delgado on Cadena SER, who states that Real Madrid have been in constant communication with Bellingham’s entourage since January and Dortmund have been informed about these contacts.

The report further adds that during these discussions Real Madrid have explained their project to Bellingham and also discussed the possible contract offer for the 19-year-old.

On top of that, members of the England star’s entourage have visited the club’s Valdebebas training facilities and have dined with Real Madrid officials as well, with Dortmund in the know about all that has been going on.

Los Blancos have been careful that while talks are ongoing with Bellingham’s entourage they do not affect his performances on the pitch, as witnessed by how well he has been doing for Dortmund this season.

As iterated earlier, the plan is for Real Madrid to close the deal to sign the 19-year-old in May and make it official in June right after the Champions League final, provided they are playing in it.

Furthermore, the report adds that Bellingham would be offered a contract that will run for five or six years. His wages would be almost at the top-tier level, just a step below stars like Thibaut Courtois and Vinicius Jr.

Manchester City have been the biggest hurdle in Real Madrid’s pursuit of the former Birmingham City starlet. But reports earlier today have claimed that Bellingham has chosen to play for the Merengues.

Dortmund, for their part, want to keep Bellingham at the club for at least one more year and have tried to hold talks with the midfielder over a new contract. However, the teenager has turned down their approaches to negotiate a new deal until now.

All signs point towards Bellingham leaving Dortmund this summer and as things stand, it seems like he could end up at Real Madrid.

The two clubs would still need to come to an agreement over a transfer fee and it remains to be seen if the Merengues are willing to splash the big bucks that the German giants are demanding for the teenager.

Real Madrid plan to hold talks with Chelsea over €60 million-rated German international

Kai Havertz has emerged as the latest target for Real Madrid as they look to beef up the attacking unit ahead of the new season.

The club are bracing themselves for the loss of Marco Asensio, who is reportedly closing in on a move to Paris Saint-Germain. Even Dani Ceballos is facing an uncertain future at Santiago Bernabeu, though the club are making a last-gasp effort to keep hold of the midfielder.

In order to mitigate the losses, Real Madrid are planning to bring in a new attacker, with Havertz emerging as a potential candidate.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid’s plan is to hold talks with Chelsea in the next few weeks, over the possibility of Havertz’s move to the Bernabeu.

The Premier League giants seek good money for the German international, but do not consider him ‘untouchable’. The player, after all, has endured a difficult season, where his productivity has been questioned.

The former Bayer Leverkusen starlet has netted seven goals in the Premier League this past season, but the number could have easily breached the 15 mark if the forward had successfully converted most of his chances.

Chelsea, therefore, are ready to offload the German ahead of the new season. The Blues had signed the young playmaker in the summer of 2020, for an astounding €80 million. But the move has not paid off at all, with the player scoring just 32 goals in 139 appearances.

Chelsea are now keen on recouping some of that investment by asking big money for Havertz this summer. Real Madrid, for their part, are not exactly clear how much they should spend on the German, but they appear ready to take the gamble on the player.
