Jude Bellingham will have the last word as Real Madrid enter the race for the Liverpool target
Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham has been the subject of interest from Liverpool who have been touted to compete for his signature next season against Real Madrid.
The England International is set to stay at the German club for the current season at least, with the club not keen to sell their player after the sale of Erling Haaland to Manchester City.
However, according to Spanish outlet AS (h/t Liverpool Echo), Real Madrid are interested in making the midfielder their prime target for the summer transfer window of 2023. This comes after the recent transfer of Casemiro to Manchester United.
This is bad news for Liverpool, who have curtailed their transfer activity for this season to target Bellingham next summer. With Real Madrid interested, the possible acquisition of the midfielder has become tougher to achieve.
Bellingham burst onto the scene as a 17-year-old in the Championship, playing for Birmingham City. Such was the hype around the player that once he moved to Borussia Dortmund, the Championship club retired the player’s jersey number in his honour.
With many top clubs interested in his signing during his time in the Championship, Bellingham chose to follow the best way for his development and joined Dortmund.
Spending one more year at Dortmund where he will be given more responsibilities and minutes will be beneficial to the player, given the World Cup is also around the corner.
However, with the departure of Casemiro for a sizable fee of £60m, Real Madrid would be looking to reinvest the amount. Securing the Englishman will give them an exciting midfield trio of Eduard Camavinga, Aurelien Tchoumeni and Jude Bellingham.

This young midfield has the capability of being the team’s mainstay for many years to come. Hence, it is important that we take into consideration Real Madrid’s interest and act swiftly to secure Bellingham’s signing and hopefully, build a team around the player who has undoubted potential to become one of the best in the world.
