Real Madrid are aware of the competition in the race to sign Jude Bellingham after the World Cup. And Florentino Pérez already has a plan B if he fails to secure the signature of the young English midfielder.
A couple of days earlier, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted that the club could not compete financially if a bigger offer comes for Bellingham, according to Talksport.
Real Madrid are one of the teams that could bid for the midfielder according to the club’s demands. However, it doesn’t seem to be an easy task for the Spanish football giants.
According to Fichajes, Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez has thought about Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans as an alternative to Jude Bellingham aside from Benfica Enzo Fernández in our earlier report.
The report from the Spanish outlet suggests Florentino Pérez has been analysing reports about the Belgian, who’s been one of the best legs at Leicester City.
The Los Blancos are desperate to bring reinforcement with the possible departure of Luka Modrić and Toni Kroos on sight. Although this may not be an imminent move, the club could begin their pursuit next season.
Why is Real Madrid considering Youri Tielemans
Tielemans current contract with Leicester City would come to an end in June 2023, which makes it easier for the club to negotiate with his agents.
By January 1, he would be free to negotiate with clubs interested in securing his services. The Los Blancos will benefit from this as they’ll sign him for free.
