German club Borussia Dortmund have set an asking price of €120m for Real Madrid transfer target Jude Bellingham, according to Sport Bild.

The 19 year old England international is seen as a long-term replacement for Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.

36 year old Modric just signed a one year contract with Real Madrid until the summer of 2023.

Modric is still performing at an elite level despite his age. But in 12 months time it makes sense to make a change and bring Bellingham to La Liga.

Real Madrid have identified Bellingham as a key transfer target for the summer of 2023.

Premier League side Liverpool are also interested in signing Bellingham, who is considered to be one of the most promising talents in European football.

All three key Real Madrid midfielders – Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro – are all over 30 and the club is beginning to gradually replace them having signed Eduardo Camavinga last summer and signing Aurelien Tchouameni this summer.

Tchouameni chose Real Madrid over Liverpool when joining from Monaci and it is expected Bellingham will choose Real Madrid over Liverpool next summer.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid have identified Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-min Son as a transfer target for the club this summer, according to transfer expert Rudy Galetti.

Son, 29, had an impressive season for Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 23 goals on his way to the golden boot, which was shared with Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants attacking reinforcements this summer following the expected exits of Bale, Asensio and Isco this summer.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son will be an ideal signing for Real Madrid.

Having failed to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, Real Madrid president Perez believes Son will be an ideal alternative to the France international.

Son’s Tottenham Hotspur contract expires in the summer of 2025 which means only a huge offer from Real Madrid will convince Tottenham Hotspur to sell the South Korean international.
