Jude Bellingham required a great tournament to demonstrate his talent, and the Dortmund player shone at the World Cup. The German club has accepted that the footballer wishes to leave before the start of the next season. Two clubs are still vying for the Englishman.
Real Madrid is one of them. 'Los Blancos' need to re-energize their midfield, as Modric and Kroos are nearing the end of their productive careers. Bellingham is the ideal midfield replacement.
'Marca' claims that Real Madrid is optimistic about Bellingham, especially after the player turned down all offers from Borussia Dortmund.
Man City is the other major club interested in signing Bellingham. To sign the England international, the Sky Blues are willing to pay up to 170 million euros.
Real Madrid is remaining calm and intends to take small steps to ensure the transaction is completed. Man City, on the other hand, will be a tough competitor.
