Jude Bellingham transfer news
Jude Bellingham transfer news is online, as Borussia Dortmund reveals the figure for Jude which could surpass £115m making the most expensive British player ever at the age of 19. Real Madrid had offered a big figure for Jude and the Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund has agreed to deal offered by Real Madrid.
To be noted, He was awarded with the Bundesliga player of the year for the season 2022/23. Real Madrid showed an interest in this player for few months and eventually had confirmed the deal with Borussia Dortmund.
The German club, whose website crashed when they released the news, seemed to confirm Bellingham will sign a six-year deal at the Bernabeu in their statement.
Regarding the add-ons, the club statement read: “Such variable transfer fees are dependent on the achievement of certain sporting successes by Real Madrid and/or sporting successes or performances of the player at Real Madrid in the period of the next six seasons.”
Bellingham, who moved to Dortmund from Championship side Birmingham in 2020, had interest from Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League, but Real appear to have won the race for his signature.
Liverpool had been favourites for Bellingham at one stage, however they were forced to end their pursuit due to the cost of the deal. Once Real Madrid had a victory over Chelsea with 2-0 on the second leg of the champions league where Rodrygo double scores in the quarter finals.
The midfielder was named the Bundesliga’s Player of the Year for the past season as Dortmund agonisingly missed out on the title to rivals Bayern Munich on the final day.
Bellingham has 24 caps and one goal for England since making his international debut against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley in November 2020.
Carlo Ancelotti on Interview
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was so satisfied on signing a deal for Jude and said, “Bellingham is one of them,” the Italian said. “But I’ll stick with my midfielders, who are very good, especially the youngsters.”
It was a reminder, despite Bellingham being one of the most sought-after midfielders in the world, that Real Madrid are a club with plenty of pedigree in that position.
The Spanish giants are blessed with a wide range of young midfielders. Last year, Aurelien Tchouameni, 23, signed a six-year deal after joining for £68m from Monaco, Eduardo Camavinga, 20, arrived 12 months earlier for a £35m fee from Rennes, while Federico Valverde, 24, is closing in on 200 appearances for the club.
Add in Luka Modric, 37, and Toni Kroos, 33, who despite having a combined age of 70 are still vital to this the side, and Real have the perfect blend of youth and experience in midfield, with Dani Ceballos one of Ancelotti’s surprise talents of the season at the age of 26.
Jude Bellingham journey in Bundesliga
At just 19 years of age, Bellingham is the complete package: a dynamic midfielder who can win the ball and drive it forward, hold up possession, resist the press, find gaps in opposition defences, plus assist and score goals.
“He’s one of the most gifted players I’ve ever seen,” a starry-eyed Phil Foden said of his England teammate on ITV in December, after the Three Lions eased past Senegal to book a 2022 World Cup quarter-final with holders France. “I don’t see a weakness in his game, I think he’s got everything. I’m sure he’s going to be the best midfielder in the world.”
It’s little wonder Dortmund coach Edin Terzic recently described his No.22 as “the oldest 19-year-old I have ever seen”, with England counterpart Gareth Southgate highlighting his remarkable recent progress: “I don’t think we could have predicted how quickly he would mature. In the last five months that has gone to another level.”
Bellingham’s achievements would be exceptional at any age, but the fact that he has done so much, so young, shows that he is a once-in-a-generation talent, not unlike the Gallic superstar he faced in England’s narrow last-eight defeat: Kylian Mbappe. There are distinct parallels between two of the World Cup’s top performers. Articulate and mild-mannered off the pitch, fiercely competitive on it, they seemed blissfully unaware of any pressure on their shoulders in guiding their nations to the latter stages of the tournament.
