According to sources in the Spanish media, Real Madrid has finalized the agreement for their blockbuster signing in the upcoming summer transfer window. It is the first Real Madrid new signing this 2023/24 season.
Having failed to win La Liga this season, Real Madrid has virtually run out of targets in their remaining two matches. Therefore, the club’s leadership has quickly turned their attention to the summer transfer market to strengthen and upgrade the squad’s quality.
The latest report states that Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have reached common ground in the deal for Jude Bellingham. Real Madrid will reportedly spend Jude Bellingham transfer fee of €100 million (excluding additional fees) to acquire the services of the English midfielder. Bellingham is expected to arrive in Madrid next week to complete the necessary procedures and join the ranks of the Spanish giants.
Bellingham is set to become Real Madrid’s third €100 million signing in history, following Eden Hazard (€115 million) and Gareth Bale (€101 million). The Bernabeu-based club will offer the English international a 6-year contract.
Real Madrid truly values Bellingham’s talent. The 2003-born player has impressed the coaching staff and scouting team of “Los Blancos” with his ball control, vision, and impressive penetrations into the penalty area.
To acquire one of the most promising young midfielders in the world, Real Madrid had to launch a “campaign” with the involvement of both President Florentino Perez and General Director Jose Angel Sanchez. Coach Carlo Ancelotti has also been informed about Bellingham’s imminent arrival at Real as well as other Real Madrid transfers in and out.
According to Marca, Bellingham’s salary upon joining Real will not be among the highest. This doesn’t concern the former Birmingham player, as his top priority remains wearing the jersey of the greatest club in the history of the European Cup/Champions League.
Currently, Bellingham is preparing with Dortmund for their final match in the Bundesliga, where the Ruhr-based team only needs to secure 3 points against Mainz 05 on May 27th to clinch the league title.
It will truly be a beautiful farewell message from the English midfielder to the passionate fans of the black and yellow club before moving on to play for the Royal team of Spain. And Dortmund need to improve their squad with many upcoming Dortmund transfer targets.
In the Dortmund jersey, Bellingham has truly emerged as one of the world’s top players. His tactical awareness, football intelligence, and diverse finishing abilities have been impressively showcased.
In the current season, Bellingham has contributed 14 goals and 6 assists in 42 appearances for Dortmund. The such impressive form has not only helped the club to contend for the Bundesliga title but also ensured the 19-year-old midfielder a regular starting position for the national team.
Upon joining Real Madrid, the challenges and pressures will be much greater. However, it will also serve as an opportunity for Bellingham to prove his class and strive for prestigious titles alongside the white herons in the future.
