Jude Bellingham has quickly become the undisputed regular at Borussia Dortmund. As a result, the BVB midfielder has been targeted by one of the biggest clubs in football history: Real Madrid. According to Spain, he could herald the future for the royal team.
Real Madrid is by no means solely concentrating on BVB super striker Erling Haaland and PSG star Kylian Mbappé, the capital club’s two biggest transfer targets for the coming transfer summer. As the “Marca” headlined in its edition on Saturday, the bosses of the Madrilenians are nevertheless looking to a whole range of other highly talented players who could soon wear the white jersey.
Among the exceptional talents from sports sheet belongs to Jude Bellingham, Erling Haaland’s team-mate at Borussia Dortmund. According to the report, the young Englishman is one of two players set to succeed midfielder Casemiro alongside Monaco’s Aurélien Tchouaméni.
The 29-year-old has been in the Blancos control center for years. In the three-man midfield, he takes over the defensive part and is the first defender in front of the four-man defense.
BVB strategist Bellingham the perfect player for Real Madrid?
In 19-year-old Eduardo Camavinga, Real Madrid had already signed a new representative from Casemiros for 31 million euros last summer, but the position of the versatile Frenchman does not seem to have been finally found. The youngster feels a little more comfortable a row ahead of Casemiro, where Federico Valverde, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric mostly take charge.
According to “Marca”, BVB star Bellingham has long been scrutinized by those responsible for the royal team. Internally, he is considered to be the complete midfielder that coach Carlo Ancelotti needs for the game.
However, it is highly doubtful whether Real Madrid have any chance of signing the 18-year-old in the near future. Bellingham feels at home in the Ruhr area, as he recently made clear. His contract with BVB runs until 2025, and according to clear statements from BVB bosses, a transfer next summer seems impossible.
