Real Madrid unwilling to stump up €150 million to sign Liverpool target in 2023

Jude Bellingham is all set to spark a major bidding war in the summer of 2023, with many top clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea vying for his signature from Borussia Dortmund.

Just 19 years of age, the Englishman has become one of the top midfielders in the game currently and has grown into a leader at Dortmund, even captaining the team on several occasions this season.

But the German giants are aware of the rising interest in the former Birmingham City ace and are reported to be preparing for a potential departure next year.

It is claimed that Borussia Dortmund will demand a price of around €150 million to sell Bellingham in the summer. But, according to SPORT, Real Madrid will be unwilling to match that valuation and instead look to land him for a lower figure closer to the €100 million mark.

The CIES football observatory recently valued Bellingham at a mammoth €202 million as per the report. And while such a price would be preposterous, Dortmund would want to make the most of the interest in the 19-year-old and rake in €150 million from his sale.

The fact that Bellingham does not have a release clause embedded in his contract and still has over two years left on it puts the Bundesliga heavyweights in a strong position as well.

Be that as it may, Real Madrid do not wish to pay over the odds for Bellingham and have no intentions to match the €150 million valuation as things stand.

Liverpool have been touted to be frontrunners to sign the England international in the past. But, Real Madrid believe that they are well within a shot of signing him and the final call will be up to the player on where he ends up.

With Luka Modric in the twilight of his career and Toni Kroos yet to renew as well, Real Madrid will need a new midfielder and Bellingham is seen as a top target. But the club will not spend €150 million to sign him.
