Jude Bellingham has been on Real Madrid's radar and are hoping they can get the deal done in the summer.

The 19-year-old midfielder has been one of Dortmund's best players this season scoring five goals and creating four assists. He has been scouted by different clubs in Europe and recently linked to Liverpool.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is a target for Real Madrid in May, and the club may make the deal official at the end of the season.

Real Madrid already in touch with Bellingham agent

Madrid have been in touch with Bellingham’s agent as they tend to complete the transfer of the England International.

According to Francisco Jose Delgado on Cadena SER, Since January, Real Madrid has been in frequent contact with Bellingham's entourage, and Dortmund has been made aware of this interaction.

They have also discussed a possible contract with his agent and have also visited Madrid’s training centre.

As previously said, the goal is for Real Madrid to finalize the signing of the 19-year-old in May and make it public in June.

Real Madrid are getting ready to extend a five- or six-year contract to Bellingham. His pay would be close to the top, just a notch below athletes like Vinicius Jr. and Thibaut Courtois.

Bellingham have other suitors

Manchester City are also in for Bellingham and are ready to rival Real Madrid for the English midfielder. 

Bellingham has been in talks with Dortmund about a new contract because the club wants to keep him for at least another year. The youngster has rejected attempts to negotiate a fresh agreement.

Bellingham is expected to leave Dortmund this summer, and based on the current situation, it appears that Real Madrid may be his final destination.

The transfer fee would still need to be agreed upon by the two teams, and it is unclear if they will be willing to pay over the high sum that the German powerhouses are asking for their star man.
