Real Madrid seems to have big plans for the summer transfer window. They haven’t done much in the market for a few years, and their net spending has been less than that of several mid-table Premier League clubs over the past ten years or so. That’s a lot for Los Blancos, who are known for spending a lot of money on players, but during this time they may have been more successful than ever.
Some big signings could happen next summer, though. Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham is a player they have been linked with a lot in the past few months.
Real Madrid is thought to see him as their next Galactico, and it’s easy to see why. Even though Bellingham is only 19, he has already become the heart and soul of Borussia Dortmund’s team and one of the best players in the Bundesliga.
At first, it was thought that Bellingham could be signed for a transfer fee of around €100 million. But according to The Athletic (via Express), Borussia Dortmund will only let him go if they get their asking price of £131.6 million (€150 million).
To sign the midfielder, Real Madrid will have to pay €150 million.
Bellingham is one of the best players in the world right now, and many people think he could win the Ballon d’Or one day.
Even so, it seems unlikely that Real Madrid would break their transfer record to sign the Borussia Dortmund teenager. But football has seen stranger things happen.
Also, it should be said that Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea are all thought to be in the running to sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.
