Real Madrid’s pursuit of top target has slowed down due to veteran duo’s uncertain situations

There is no secret that Real Madrid harbour the dream of signing Jude Bellingham in the coming season. The Spanish giants consider the Borussia Dortmund starlet as the ideal man to spearhead the club’s midfield unit in the years to come.

Aged just 19, Bellingham has mesmerised the footballing world with his skills, maturity and aggression. It has made him an appealing target for a club like Real Madrid. However, with Borussia Dortmund valuing him highly, signing him could be far from straightforward.

To that end, a recent report from Diario AS has offered an update on the future of Bellingham, suggesting Real Madrid’s pursuit of the Englishman has slowed down recently.

This is because of multiple factors, including Bellingham’s own reluctance in making a definitive decision on his future. Borussia Dortmund themselves had hoped to sit down with the midfielder in an attempt to reach a conclusion on the player’s future.

But that meeting has not happened yet. The uncertainty over the Englishman’s future has also seen Real Madrid taking a back seat. The Spanish giants are now willing to wait it out and see what happens with the future of their existing midfield stars Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Although the continuity of the two ageing midfielders will not impact the role of Bellingham from a tactical perspective, Real Madrid are planning on waiting one more year and seeking a move for the youngster in the summer of 2024.

With Bellingham’s current deal at Dortmund expiring in 2025, his exit from Signal Iduna Park in the summer of 2024 could allow Real Madrid to sign him for a cut-price figure.

However, nothing has been decided just yet and with Bellingham still left to decide his future, a lot could happen in the coming months.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
