According to a report from Sky Sports, Real Madrid are now the favourites to sign Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund after Liverpool backed away from their pursuit. It is understood that the Merseysiders are creating a roster of other potential options as they have determined that the extent of their summer reconstruction project makes it impossible to pursue the acquisition of Bellingham. This gives Los Blancos a significant boost in acquiring his signature at the end of this season.

Bellingham’s Impressive Numbers For Borussia Dortmund So Far This Season

Bellingham is enjoying an outstanding season at Dortmund as he is putting in several match-winning displays for them in the Bundesliga. The 19-year-old has scored ten goals and picked up five assists over 36 appearances for the German club this season across various competitions.

The Stourbridge-born talent has been exceptional at both ends of the field and deserves credit for averaging 1.9 shots, 1.2 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 2.6 tackles, 1.1 key passes and 2.7 dribbles per game in the German first division. He has even been tidy when interchanging possession with his teammates after completing 82.2% of his attempted passes in the German top flight (stats via whoscored).

Bellingham’s existing agreement at Signal Iduna Park is scheduled to terminate in the summer of 2025, and he had a notable performance for England in the previous year’s World Cup. Therefore, any team desiring to secure his services will have to present an undeniable proposal to prevail in the race for Bellingham’s signature at the end of this season.

Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Reach A Verbal Agreement Ahead Of The Summer Transfer Window?

Bellingham is a strong presence in the central areas and is known for his ability to make tough tackles, disrupting the opposition’s play. Additionally, he is capable of making crucial interceptions for his team and clearing the danger when the opposition is on the attack. He possesses the ability to strike the ball with both power and accuracy from a long distance and has great vision, which allows him to create opportunities for his teammates in the final third.

The English wonderkid is a versatile player, capable of contributing to all areas of the pitch. As such, he is eager to learn from the best and has expressed a desire to join a club where he can further develop his skills and learn from experienced players in order to improve his game.

Thus, Santiago Bernabeu would be the perfect fit for him, as he could be significantly improve his game while playing alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the midfield department. Hence, Carlo Ancelotti should reach out Bellingham beforehand to seal the deal verbally in case other suitors try to make contact and offer Dortmund a lucrative deal.
