Real Madrid is on the verge of signing Jude Bellingham
Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund is close to joining Real Madrid, with negotiations between the clubs reaching the final stages. While the England midfielder was also pursued by Premier League clubs like Manchester City, Real Madrid have made significant progress in securing personal terms with the player. Madrid’s chief scout, Juni Calafat, played a crucial role in advancing the talks.
Although the transfer fee has not been finalized, Real Madrid are confident that it won’t be a problem and aim to conclude the deal this month. This development is a setback for Manchester City, who have been competing with Real Madrid for Bellingham’s signature. Liverpool backed out of the race due to the transfer cost, while Manchester United’s interest hinged on the club’s ownership situation.
Bellingham joined Dortmund from Birmingham in 2020 and has emerged as one of the most sought-after players in the world.
