Jude Bellingham is Real Madrid’s main target this summer, report Mundo Deportivo.
Madrid are reportedly not willing to pay the €150m that Borussia Dortmund are asking for, although they would have an offer ready that would be very close to that figure.
This is according to German outlet Bild, who report that Los Blancos are prepared to offer Dortmund €100m in fixed fees and another €40-50m in variables. The report adds that Madrid would pay €20m per season to the English midfielder.
Real Madrid remain the favourites to sign Bellingham, who has already captained Dortmund at the age of 19. It is also believed that he would prefer a move to the Bernabéu over a move to PSG or Premier League sides Manchester City and Chelsea.
With Liverpool now said to be out of the transfer race to sign the England international, Madrid could be closer to landing the talented midfielder.
