Three reasons Bellingham could pick Real Madrid over Liverpool including Perez friendship

Borussia Dortmund and England star Jude Bellingham has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool and Real Madrid, amongst others, in recent months.

Bellingham impressed for the Three Lions at the World Cup in Qatar, increasing his reputation on the global stage at the age of just 19.

He was 16 years old when he made his senior debut for Birmingham City, before moving to Dortmund a year later.

Bellingham is one of the Bundesliga's top stars, and his performances have alerted Europe's elite.


Liverpool want to bolster their midfield in the upcoming windows due to injury and expiring contracts, while Real, according to The Telegraph, see Bellingham as a natural successor to Luka Modric.

But they have been joined in the pursuit of the midfielder by Manchester United and Manchester City, whilst Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Chelsea have been credited with an interest.


Now, it has been claimed that there are three reasons why Bellingham could choose to move to Real Madrid over other clubs, including Liverpool.


Bellingham linked with Real Madrid move

Spanish publication AS claim that Los Blancos hold three key advantages which could help them to sign Bellingham from Dortmund.

They say that president Florentino Perez has a close relationship with Dortmund sporting director Hans-Joaquim Watzke, with the pair having concluded several deals between the two clubs in recent years, including Achraf Hakimi and Reinier.

It is also added that Real's history - including their 14 European Cups, more than any other club - would help to convince Bellingham to make the move to the Bernabeu.


Finally, they claim that the 19-year-old's recent World Cup performances would also aid a move to Los Blancos.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been linked with potential moves for Enzo Fernandez, Sofyan Amrabat and Eljif Elmas.

Should the deal for Bellingham not work out, Jurgen Klopp's side will have other alternatives - but they will no doubt remain in the race for the Dortmund midfielder until he or the club makes the final decision on his next destination.
