Bellingham bypasses Manchester clubs for Real Madrid move

Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham has emerged as one of the most exciting young midfielders in world football, with a host of top European clubs vying for his signature.

Manchester United and Manchester City were both keen on securing the services of the 17-year-old prodigy, with Pep Guardiola even believing he had the upper hand due to Bellingham’s close friendship with City star Erling Haaland.

However, recent reports suggest that Real Madrid are now the front-runners to sign the youngster, after agreeing on personal terms and reportedly willing to meet Dortmund’s asking price of £120m.

A move to Real Madrid would see Bellingham join a club that has been one of the most successful in European football, with a rich history and a wealth of talent in their squad.

Will Bellingham be a starter at Madrid?

However, he will also be faced with tough competition for a starting midfield spot, with veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos expected to sign new contracts and young talents such as Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde already impressing under coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Despite this, Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid could prove to be a smart move for the teenager, as he would be joining a club that is eager to bounce back from a poor domestic campaign.

Real Madrid is still in contention for the Champions League title, but is also desperate to reclaim the La Liga title from fierce rivals Barcelona.

Bellingham’s presence in the midfield could provide the club with a fresh injection of energy and skill, helping them to regain their winning ways.

Meanwhile, Manchester City and Manchester United will likely have to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements, with Bellingham’s decision to join Real Madrid set to disappoint both clubs.

Liverpool also pulled out of the race to sign the midfielder, concerned about the high price tag and the need for a significant squad overhaul.

Bellingham’s potential move to Real Madrid would be a significant coup for the Spanish giants, and a major loss for the Manchester clubs who were hoping to secure the talented youngster’s services.

It remains to be seen how the teenager will adapt to the intense pressure and competition at a club of Real Madrid’s stature, but there is no doubt that his potential is immense and his future is very bright.
