Borussia Dortmund preparing for the exit of Real Madrid target – report

According to MARCA, Borussia Dortmund have started to take note of the interest attracted by their star player Jude Bellingham.

The Englishman has become the hottest prospect in Europe right now, with clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Liverpool keen on securing his services in the coming summer.

In light of the widespread interest around Bellingham, Dortmund have started to take note, with the club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke confirming the fact that the club are taking steps to finalise his fate at the end of the season.

Watzke further confirmed that Dortmund are set to have a discussion with Bellingham’s environment soon after the World Cup.

“I think as soon as the World Cup is over, we will have a general discussion about what he really wants,” Watzke said. “We will speak with him and his parents, with whom we have a very close relationship, and, of course, with his advisor.”

Bellingham made headlines after his selection to the England national side for the upcoming FIFA World Cup. At the age of just 19, he is expected to play a vital role for Gareth Southgate’s troops, as the nation looks to lift its first World Cup since 1966.

Watzke, though, indicated that Borussia Dortmund are prepared for his exit and will not stand in the player’s way if he wants to move on.

“He should tell us whether he wants to stay or whether he wants to leave. In both cases, we will have a very pleasant and reasonable discussion between us.”

He further added that Dortmund are not in a position to financially compete with other giants in Europe, stating, “But we don’t have to pretend that the issue is not on the table. If the really big clubs are involved, then we can’t afford to have a financial fight.”

However, Dortmund are certainly expected to make life difficult for Real Madrid and other suitors in their pursuit of Bellingham, who is valued at around €100 million right now. The figure could increase drastically depending on the youngster’s performances in the World Cup.
