Jude Bellingham more likely to join Real Madrid than Liverpool - report
Borussia Dortmund and England international star Jude Bellingham would prefer a move to Real Madrid over the Premier League, according to MARCA.
It’s claimed that the 19-year-old favours a move to the La Liga giants over the Premier League, snubbing Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The youngster is currently the hottest bit of property in world football and it will take a large fee to lure him away from Signal Iduna Park this summer.
The report suggests that Real Madrid have been following Bellingham since 2019 and see the midfielder as the heir to Luka Modric’s shiny Madristra throne.
Modric is now 37-years-old and certainly coming to the end of his career, so a move for Bellingham makes complete sense for Madrid after this campaign.
Los Blancos already have Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde as ready-made partners for Bellingham should he choose to join them.
If there’s one thing that is certain this summer, there will be a big battle for Bellingham’s signature and it will ultimately come down to who the midfielder wants to join.
He has the potential to join any elite European club he wants, it’s more of a question between La Liga and the Premier League of where he may end up.
All clubs vying for his signature offer interesting propositions, some better than others, but Bellingham seems a grounded young man and will ultimately do what’s best for his career.
He’s the type of talent that can spearhead whatever club he joins midfield for at least the next decade; so he’ll be worth every penny Dortmund asks for him.
The world is Bellingham’s oyster, but this one will be played out throughout the summer months, we are expecting twists and turns aplenty with this one.
Time will tell where he ends up.
