Real Madrid are pushing hard to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer but are set to face stern competition from Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City.

Reports suggest that Man City have also made Bellingham their top priority for the summer given that Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva could be leaving in the summer.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have held a long-standing interest in the England international and could go hard for his signing although the possibility of them missing out on Champions League football could hamper their chances.

Either way, with competition stern, Real Madrid are aware that the signing of the 19-year-old midfield prodigy will be anything but straightforward.

However, according to MARCA, Los Blancos trust that Bellingham will decide to choose Real Madrid over his other suitors as his preferred destination even though they will not be matching the financial offers from the Premier League clubs.

Borussia Dortmund, for their part, want a €150 million package for their prized asset with a split of €110-115 million in fixed payments and the rest in variables.

Both Liverpool and Manchester City would offer more than Real Madrid to secure Bellingham’s services, but the Merengues trust that the midfielder would choose the Santiago Bernabeu as his preferred destination over a move to his homeland.

The report further suggests that the reigning champions of Spain and Europe would be offering Bellingham a contract worth €10 million net salary, keeping in mind not to break the club’s wage structure.

Real Madrid acknowledge that the England star is a generational talent and want him at the club next season. At the same time, they are not willing to pay over the odds and are not prepared to reach the figures they were ready to do for Kylian Mbappe’s signing in the past.

The Merengues are aware that commissions will also be involved for Bellingham’s agent and father, which could complicate matters as they would be unwilling to match offers from the Premier League clubs.

But as was the case with the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga in the past, Real Madrid trust that Bellingham will also choose their sporting project over superior financial offers.
