Jurgen Klopp Jude Bellingham Real Madrid

Real Madrid and Liverpool are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham next summer.

Real Madrid see the 19 year old England international as the ideal long-term replacement for Real Madrid legend Luka Modric.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed the only problem with Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Real Madrid transfer target Jude Bellingham.

According to Klopp, the only problem that Bellingham has is that he isn’t available for transfer this summer.

Klopp said of Bellingham: “He’s not on the market, so that’s the first problem with that player. Well, the only problem with that player!”

Meanwhile, 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.
