- Jude Bellingham has emerged as one of the most sought-after players in Europe
- Real Madrid are ‘confident they can sign’ the 19-year-old England midfielder
- They are ‘willing to pay £90 million’ to prise him away from Borussia Dortmund
- He is also being chased by Manchester City, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain
Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid are confident they have taken the ‘necessary steps’ to sign Jude Bellingham, despite interest in the midfielder from several of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are all keen on the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who at the age of just 19 has already become one of the world’s most sought after players.
He recently impressed at the Qatar World Cup, scoring his first senior goal for England and emerging as one of the breakout stars of the tournament.

According to reports in Marca, Bellingham could now be headed to the Bernabeu, and he is reportedly ‘aware of what Real would be willing to offer him.’
They also claim the Spanish giants have kept Dortmund in the loop on their planned movements in a bid to maintain good relations, and that Real would be willing to pay around ‘£90 million’ while Edin Terzic’s side are looking for closer to ‘£106 million.’
The other clubs keen to bring in Bellingham are thought to be willing to pay much more to pry him away from Germany.
If he did join Real, he would link up with Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni
If the 19-year-old was to join Real, it would go a long way to future-proofing an aging squad.
Their immensely successful side of the past decade has relied heavily on Luka Modric, 37, Toni Kroos, 33, and Casemiro, who left for Manchester United earlier this season.
Exciting talents such as Aurelien Tchouameni, 22, and Eduardo Camavinga, 20, are already emerging as new options in Madrid, and Bellingham could be the last piece of the puzzle.
