La Liga champions Real Madrid have reportedly stepped up their efforts to sign Jude Bellingham, a target for Chelsea and Liverpool.
According to a report by Daily Telegraph, Real Madrid will begin the charm offensive to woo Jude Bellingham to the Santiago Bernabeu next summer. The reigning La Liga champions want to show the Englishman he has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a “Young Galactico”. The Borussia Dortmund prodigy is also a target for Chelsea and Liverpool.
Jude Bellingham has been the talk of the transfer market since breaking into the Birmingham City FC first-team as a 16-year-old. The English wonderkid had Europe’s biggest clubs chasing him two years ago before Borussia Dortmund secured his services. And Bellingham has gone from strength to strength at the Signal Iduna Park.
The 19-year-old has turned out over 100 times for the Bundesliga giants, chipping in with 14 goals and 20 assists. Bellingham, also a pivotal figure for the English national team, has thus become a hot property in the market. Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Chelsea are some of his prospective suitors.
Bellingham is reportedly a priority target for Real Madrid, with Los Blancos tracking him for some time now. With Luka Modric and Toni Kroos well into their thirties, the English international will be a long-term solution in midfield. And the Merengues are now stepping up their efforts to sign the teenage prodigy.
Meanwhile, Chelsea might be eyeing Bellingham in the wake of Jorginho and N’Golo Kante’s advancing years. The latter has also sustained numerous injuries in the last few years and might lose his spot as a regular. Bellingham is thus a viable target for Chelsea.
As for Liverpool, like Real Madrid, the Reds have also been monitoring the Englishman’s progress for a long time. Jurgen Klopp is planning for the next phase of his squad planning. And with James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara on the wrong side of 30, Bellingham is a top target for Liverpool.
Real Madrid will aim to woo Bellingham by selling him the prospect of becoming a “Young Galactico”. They also want to show him that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But Chelsea and Liverpool will fancy their chances, thus setting up an intriguing race to sign the 19-year-old.
