- Real Madrid could reportedly make a £78million offer for Jude Bellingham
- They may look to agree a deal this summer as his price will only continue to rise

- Liverpool are also interested in Bellingham and are said to have bid £86million
Real Madrid could reportedly launch a stunning £78million bid to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Bellingham’s stock is continuing to soar following another impressive season in the Bundesliga.
Liverpool have also been linked with a move for the 18-year-old, who started three of England’s four Nations League games this month.

According to Cadena SER, Real Madrid contacted Dortmund during the January window and may look to agree a deal this summer as Bellingham’s price will only continue to rise.
The report adds that Los Blancos will make a move for him if they do not splash the cash on a striker, with a five or six-year contract likely to be their offer to the midfielder.
However, it is said that Liverpool have already offered £86million to Dortmund, trumping Madrid’s bid of £78million.
Another stumbling block for the Spanish side is that they already have a full quota of non-EU players in their squad.
The Cadena SER report claims that it is hoped Vinicius Junior will have obtained a Spanish passport by 2023 so Bellingham could join next summer if a deal is agreed over the next few months.

Carlo Ancelotti has already added to his midfield ranks this month by signing Aurelien Tchouameni, 22, for £86million from Monaco.
Dortmund are expected to face a difficult battle to keep Bellingham, but the teenager has stated his desire to remain at the Westfalenstadion.
‘The only future I think about is the next game for Dortmund,’ he told Ruhr Nachrichten.
‘I look forward to next season. I look forward to it finally starting. But yes, I will be here next season and I will be ready.’
