Real Madrid are keeping tabs on a superstar player that will become the 'complete midfielder' in the future.
The Spanish giants are eyeing new talent ahead of the summer transfer window, with Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland high on their wish-list.
Not to mention Jude Bellingham who's attracting interest from around Europe, with Liverpool and Manchester United also thought to be keen on snapping up the 18-year-old.
And according to Spanish outlet Marca, Real's board are hellbent on securing the England international's services as they believe he will become the 'complete midfielder'.
Bellingham has starred for Borussia Dortmund and England since completing his move from Birmingham City in 2020.
He has produced heroics in the middle of the park, creating and scoring goals in Germany's top flight while impressing on the international stage.
Real, though, face intense competition from some of the Premier League's biggest clubs, with Steve McManaman urging The Red Devils to sign Bellingham as they need a player like him in their team.
"He’s got all the attributes to be a superstar," the former Liverpool and Real star told Horseracing.net.
"When you look through the teams and the sides that could buy him – Manchester United would need that type of player as a central midfielder.
"Manchester City, with Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, not so much.
"Liverpool have got Jordan Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho. Of course, it would be a great signing, he’s a great player, but whether Liverpool need him now is another thing.
"Henderson is moving towards the end of his career. James Milner also. So, Liverpool could always take another centre midfielder but it’s very congested in there.
"Georginio Wijnaldum left the club in the summer and people said they needed to replace him but they didn’t. But whether people move on and Jurgen brings Jude in is another thing.
"City could accommodate him but they’ve got a plethora of great players in there and he mightn’t play.
"I think United need a centre midfielder of that ilk. Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata are coming to the end of their careers and Paul Pogba may leave.
"So, if there’s one team that needs a player like Jude Bellingham, it’s Manchester United."
