Over the past week, there has been a lot of chatter surrounding Jude Bellingham and his potential transfer to Real Madrid. Reports suggest that the 19-year-old is closer than ever to signing for the Merengues, with a contract agreement on the verge of being finalised.

At the time, it has also been suggested by some outlets that an agreement between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund was also close, with the two clubs being separated over €30 million variables payment.

But, Christian Falk (via Caught Offside) has come up with a fresh update on the matter, stating that Real Madrid have not sent an offer to Borussia Dortmund for Bellingham as of yet.

However, the BILD journalist adds that the transfer saga could soon be resolved and that the two clubs could soon reach an agreement on the deal.

While there is an expectation from the Bundesliga club that the operation could be closed, they will not budge on their asking price for the 19-year-old midfield sensation.

As per the report, Dortmund want a fixed fee of €120 million for Bellingham plus variables which could take the total value of the operation up to €150 million.

The report states that the numbers mentioned are unlikely to be an issue for Real Madrid, but they might look to negotiate the price down although it is unclear at this point whether they will take that route.

With Liverpool out of the equation and Manchester City not an option Bellingham is considering, Real Madrid know that they are the frontrunners to secure the England international’s signing in the summer.

The 19-year-old’s father, Mark Bellingham, is understood to be speeding up negotiations with Real Madrid and soon all parties involved could meet to finalise the operation.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
