Jude Bellingham is the midfielder Real Madrid have chosen to replace Luka Modric in the team from 2023, as reported by AS.
The 18-year-old is contracted at Borussia Dortmund until 2025 and is reportedly happy in Germany, becoming a key player for the Bundesliga outfit.
Madrid want to step up their pursuit of the England international in the summer of 2023. They see Bellingham as a replacement for Luka Modric, who is set to sign a one-year contract extension until 2023.
If Real Madrid end up signing Bellingham next summer, he will become the first English player on the books of the club since David Beckham left in June 2007.
