With the race for the signing of Jude Bellingham heating up by the day, it seems like Real Madrid might end up missing out on the services of the Borussia Dortmund and England sensation.

Just 19 years of age, Bellingham is one of the most sought-after players in the market. Top clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United are all keen on signing the midfielder.

At the same time, Dortmund are unwilling to let go of their prized asset and are willing to make him the club’s highest-paid player in order to keep him at Signal Iduna Park.

If that does not pan out, the Bundesliga heavyweights will demand a massive sum of €150 million for the teenage wonderkid.

However, according to reports from ABC (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid will not reach the humungous €150 million valuation placed on Bellingham by Dortmund.

The Merengues have been hot on the trails of the former Birmingham City ace for a long time now. However, they are not willing to pay over the odds for the teenager.

And that could hinder their chances of signing Bellingham as two clubs from England are prepared to match the England star’s €150 million price tag.

Furthermore, it has been reported that the reigning champions of Spain and Europe wish to wait until there is clarity over the futures of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric before deciding to make a concerted push for Bellingham’s signing.

Such a stance could see them lose further ground in the race to sign the 19-year-old midfielder.

Bellingham has demonstrated that he is very much capable of performing at the highest level. Despite his young age, the midfielder has captained Dortmund on several occasions and led the team by example.

A generational talent, there is no doubt that he can be an exceptional addition to the Real Madrid roster. However, as things stand, Los Blancos do not wish to reach the €150 million figure to sign him and with clubs in the Premier League ready to do so, things could get tricky for Carlo Ancelotti & co.

Spain will begin their UEFA Euro 2024 journey in a little over an hour with a clash against Croatia at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Ahead of the match, Luis de la Fuente has announced the starting lineup that will be taking the field for La Roja and two Real Madrid stars feature in the team.

Indeed, Los Blancos’ captain Nacho Fernandez gets the nod as one of the centre-backs amid some injury concerns for Spain.

Meanwhile, Dani Carvajal holds on to his usual place as the right-back for La Roja against Croatia.

There is no place in the starting lineup for Real Madrid forward Joselu, though, with De la Fuente preferring Alvaro Morata as his No. 9 instead.

Meanwhile, Croatia have also announced their starting lineup, and Real Madrid midfielder and legend Luka Modric starts in midfield and also captains the team against two of his club teammates today.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic also features for Croatia against Spain.
