Real Madrid 'line up massive bid for Jude Bellingham' after Liverpool pull out of the race

Real Madrid are lining up a massive bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, according to a recent report.

Madrid are one of several clubs interested in signing the teenage star this summer with Liverpool reportedly cooling their interest and exploring other options.

Bellingham has shone this season for Borussia Dortmund and was influential for England in the World Cup last year.

This has led to interest from several giants but with the youngster preferring a move to a more ‘prestigious’ club Madrid appear to be the frontrunners.


Los Blancos would be willing to shell out £88m in fixed fees for Bellingham plus add-ons which would take the total to around £115m - £132m, according to BILD (via OneFootball).

He could also stay at Dortmund with the club ready to offer improved terms worth £13m which would make him their highest earner.


He’s likely to leave


Despite this, it’s most likely he will leave and with Liverpool now out of the race he could be off to La Liga.

Bellingham has never played in the Premier League before but he values playing for a club with passion, honour and reputation rather than money, which puts PSG, Manchester City and Chelsea at a disadvantage.

There have been links to Manchester United who have the financial muscle to pull off the move.

However, they are currently in the middle of a takeover process and it’s unlikely huge sums will be spent until that is resolved.


Bellingham is a crucial player for Dortmund, starting 25 of their 26 Bundesliga games this season.

He’s been directly involved in eight league goals, and his Champions League form is even better with eight goal contributions in just seven games.

For a 19-year-old that’s special and he’ll want to make sure he moves to a club where he can continue to develop but also win silverware.

Dortmund will also be keen to ensure a potential transfer isn’t a repeat of when they sold Erling Haaland for just £51m.


It’s a transfer saga that could easily go on until the end of the summer window.
