Real Madrid will not offer youngster in deal to sign Bellingham – Romano
With Real Madrid pushing forward in their efforts to sign Jude Bellingham in the upcoming summer transfer window, there had been murmurs about the club planning to offer a player in the deal for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder.
The name of Brahim Diaz, who is currently on loan at AC Milan, had been suggested as a possible makeweight that Real Madrid were planning to offer to Dortmund to lower Bellingham’s transfer fee.
However, according to reliable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, there are no such plans at this point. Real Madrid do not intend to offer Brahim to Dortmund as part of their bid to sign Bellingham in the upcoming transfer window.
It is no secret that the 19-year-old England international has been the top target for Los Blancos heading into the summer. And they have made significant progress in their pursuit of the youngster in recent weeks.
Personal terms are already understood to be agreed upon while Real Madrid are also preparing a formal bid to submit to Dortmund. It is expected that the offer would be around €100 million in fixed amount plus some add-ons.
Bellingham, for his part, is raring to join Real Madrid as per Romano. The England international is understood to be following the Spanish capital giants very closely and studying the way they play and their game plans.
Real Madrid, for their part, are optimistic about the negotiations for the former Birmingham City ace and believe that they can close the deal.
As for Brahim Diaz, he is likely to find a place in the Merengues’ squad for next season after a successful loan stint at AC Milan. In fact, the Spaniard is set to be handed a new contract by the club, with the negotiations understood to be in the final stages.
So, there is no possibility of Real Madrid offering Diaz to Dortmund as part of the Bellingham operation.

Real Madrid president dreaming of trident attack featuring €180 million-rated French starlet
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.
