Bellingham has been on Real Madrid’s radar for quite some time now, and it is expected that the midfielder will leave Dortmund next summer.
While Real Madrid hope they will be the destination, they’re also competing with several other big players, and Liverpool are another favourite to sign him.
A report in German media outlet Sport Bild today states that Bellingham will not wait until the summer to make his decision, and that he will do it after the World Cup in Qatar concludes at the end of December.
The reason, according to the report, is that Bellingham wants to respect Dortmund and give them as much notice as possible so as to not put them in a difficult position.
Bellingham’s current value, according to Transfermarkt, is set at 100m. It would be expected that that’s how much he would cost, at minimum.
Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni talked in a press conference for the French national team and wanted to support his teammate Karim Benzema, who has received criticism after missing the last few games with muscle fatigue.
“Benzema is calm, he knows his body and he knows everything will be fine and that he will be ready to help his team when he’s better.
He’s the world’s greatest, the top player, so it’s a pleasure to play alongside him. He’s used to being criticized and he hasn’t played more for Real Madrid because he wasn’t at 100%,” explained the midfielder.
