Real Madrid held discussions with the entourage of Jude Bellingham on Wednesday, also a target for Chelsea and Liverpool.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid met the representatives of Jude Bellingham on Wednesday. The 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder is also a target for Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City.
Jude Bellingham has become one of the most highly sought-after commodities in the market since bursting onto the scene at Birmingham City FC. And his stock has skyrocketed since moving to Borussia Dortmund nearly three years ago. At the same time, the Englishman has established himself as a pivotal figure for the Three Lions.
The 19-year-old is enjoying an excellent 2022/23 season, amassing ten goals and six assists in 28 appearances thus far. But Dortmund might have to part ways with the teenage sensation in the summer transfer window. That is because Bellingham’s progress has captured the attention of Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Liverpool.
Bellingham has been on Real Madrid’s radar for a long time. And recent reports have claimed that Los Blancos will prioritise signing the 19-year-old in the summer. With Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the twilight of their careers, Real Madrid will need to bring in their successors. And they met the player’s representatives during Borussia Dortmund’s match with Chelsea on Wednesday.
As for Chelsea, recent reports suggested that Bellingham turned down the chance to move to Stamford Bridge. But with Todd Boehly keen on completing a squad overhaul in the summer, the English international fits the bill perfectly. And the Blues are set to step up their efforts to sign him in the coming months.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will be desperate to bolster the midfield unit after a disastrous 2022/23 season thus far. The midfield department has been the Achilles Heel for the Reds in the ongoing campaign. And the 19-year-old is the top target for Liverpool heading into the summer transfer window.
Apart from Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Liverpool, Bellingham is also a target for Manchester City. And it will be interesting to see how the Premier League clubs respond to the latest move by Real Madrid.
