The 19-year-old is considered one of the most promising faces in the world of football today, which made Real Madrid ready to sign him for 100 million euros, but Dortmund is reportedly demanding more, according to reports.
Spanish Real Madrid is close to settling the contract with England midfielder Judd Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, according to Spanish media, which reported on Wednesday that the deal will be finalized soon.
The 19-year-old is considered one of the most promising faces in the world of football today, which made Real Madrid ready to sign him for 100 million euros, but Dortmund is demanding more, according to reports.
Bellingham starred with the England national team during the World Cup in Qatar at the end of last year, which increased the interest of major clubs in him, including his compatriot Manchester City.
The midfielder joined Dortmund when he was seventeen years old, coming from the English second-level team Birmingham for 29 million euros, on his way to becoming one of the indispensable pillars of the German team.
And the Spanish newspaper “Marca” reported that no deal will be announced between Real and Dortmund until the end of the Bundesliga, especially since his current team is only a point behind rivals Bayern Munich, the champions of the past ten seasons.
Real is looking for a replacement in the middle of the field in order to succeed Croatian veterans Luka Modric (37 years) and German Toni Kroos (33).
The royal club included the young French duo, Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Choameni, during the last two summer transfer periods, while he abandoned the Brazilian Casemiro in favor of Manchester United.
Bellingham scored 21 goals in 130 matches in Dortmund colors since joining him in 2020.
