Real Madrid Close to Securing Jude Bellingham
Real Madrid are closing in on the signing of Jude Bellingham, after months of interest. The 19-year-old England international has been a top target for Florentino Perez, and the Spanish club are now confident of securing his signature.
According to Marca, Real Madrid will tie up a deal for Bellingham next week, following the completion of the Bundesliga season. Borussia Dortmund are on the brink of winning the title, and once their campaign is done, they are expected to finalize terms with Real Madrid.
Real Madrid have already agreed personal terms with Bellingham, and the fee agreement with Dortmund is the final hurdle. An agreement in principle has been reached, but negotiations are on hold until the end of the Bundesliga season.
€100 million will be the starting point for negotiations, and there is not expected to be too many complications when talks resume next week. Manchester City and Liverpool have fallen by the wayside in their own pursuits of Bellingham, and Real Madrid are about to get their man.
Bellingham is one of the most exciting young players in the world, and his signing would be a major coup for Real Madrid. The midfielder is a box-to-box player who is strong in possession, has a good passing range, and is also capable of scoring goals. He would add a lot of quality to Real Madrid’s midfield, and he could be a key player for the club for many years to come.
The signing of Bellingham would also be a statement of intent from Real Madrid. The club are clearly determined to rebuild their squad and challenge for major trophies again, and the signing of one of the world’s best young players is a clear indication of their ambition.
