Jude Bellingham (19, Dortmund), who is considered the ‘biggest fish’ this summer, will take on a new challenge in Spain after working in England and Germany. It is reported that he will be negotiating soon, as he strongly wants to go to Real Madrid.
Multiple media outlets, such as Spain’s Mundo Deportivo and AS, said on the 28th (Korean time), “According to former coach Harry Redknapp (76, England), Bellingham told his aides that his biggest wish was to move to Real Madrid. It is known that they want to join this summer,” and “It seems that negotiations will begin soon,” they said in unison.
Bellingham is currently the midfielder who boasts ‘the highest ransom value’ among football players in the world. According to the market value recently set by the International Sports Research Center (CIES) under the International Football Federation (FIFA), it ranked first with 250 million euros (approximately 369.5 billion won). To that extent, considering his current skills as well as his potential for future growth, it can be seen as a ‘previous level of talent’. 메이저놀이터
Bellingham, who stood out at a young age from his days playing for the actual Birmingham City youth team, took the starting position at the same time as his professional debut in 2019. Even after moving to Borussia Dortmund the following year, he quickly rose to the ‘core’. He is proving his worth as a ‘utility player’ who has the ability to have as a midfielder and can digest various positions.
Bellingham received attention from big clubs from the beginning of last year as he ran unstoppable ‘success road’ at an early age. Leading the way are Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. He also sent ‘love calls’ to Bayern Munich and Juventus.
Naturally, a lot of attention was focused on Bellingham’s destination this summer. In particular, as the recruitment competition intensified, much attention was focused on the transfer fee soaring to the ceiling. In the midst of this, he hopes to play at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and the final decision to go to Real Madrid is in the mood.
If Bellingham joins Real Madrid this summer, he will become only the sixth player from England ever. Steve McManaman (50), David Beckham (47), Michael Owen (43), and Jonathan Woodgate (43, retired) have previously played.
