According to MARCA’s Jose Felix Diaz, Manchester City have made their presence felt in the race for Real Madrid and Liverpool target Jude Bellingham.
The 19-year-old is all set to depart Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window after enjoying a successful stint in Germany. The youngster has become one of the hottest prospects in the game and is attracting major interest from across Europe.
Real Madrid have been touted as the frontrunners for Bellingham’s signing, with reports suggesting that Los Blancos will be opening talks with Dortmund over a deal for their top target imminently.
Real Madrid have made Bellingham their top target as they prepare to complete their midfield transition, with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos reaching the final phase of their respective careers.
It had been reported that Liverpool were Real Madrid’s toughest competitors in the race for Bellingham. However, of late, the Reds have seemingly accepted defeat in their pursuit of the England international and are looking at other possible options.
But Manchester City have now presented themselves as a major threat for Real Madrid’s chances.
The report states that Pep Guardiola has made Bellingham his top target for next year and the Premier League champions are ready to show their financial clout by matching any offer that arrives for the midfielder, who could cost around €140 million.
The player and his camp are aware of the intentions of both Real Madrid and Manchester City and the final decision will now be up to Bellingham and his father.
Real Madrid, however, are confident about their chances of landing Bellingham even though they are unwilling to break their wage structure to land him.
