Real Madrid Agree to Pay 100 million Euros for Jude Bellingham : Jude Bellingham’s arrival at Real Madrid is getting closer and closer as the European giants agree to dole out 100 million Euros to secure their priority signing for the 2023/24 season.
According to information from Marca, an agreement in principle has been reached between the Spanish club and Borussia Dortmund, after a visit by some Madrid officials to Germany for the English midfielder.
He could thus join La Liga for 100 million not to mention any bonuses. A six-year contract is said to await the 19-year-old who could win the Bundesliga with his team this weekend.
Dortmund take on Mainz 05 whilst Bayern Munich travel to FC Koln with all 9 matches of the Week 34 taking place on Saturday at the same kick off time of 13:30 GMT.
Birmingham City , Where it all started for Jude
Bellingham joined Birmingham City as an under-8 after playing for Stourbridge. He played for their under-18 team at 14 and made his debut for their under-23 team at the age of 15 on 15 October 2018 away to Nottingham Forest’s U23s.
Entering the game after an hour, he scored the only goal in the 87th minute “sliding in to force the ball over the goal line after pressure by Kyle McFarlane on the keeper diverted the ball into his path.”
By March 2019, he had three goals from ten development squad appearances,had featured in FourFourTwo’s list of the “50 most exciting teenagers in English football”, and was mentioned as of interest to major European clubs.
He was gradually introduced to the first-team environment while still a schoolboy: increasingly training with the seniors, he accompanied them on matchday to observe and travelled as the “19th man” for a Championship match in March.
It had long become obvious that Bellingham would leave Birmingham, and it was reported that he and his father had visited several major clubs, of which Manchester United and Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund were the favourites.
Impressed by Dortmund’s record of including young players as regulars in the first team, as evidenced by the likes of Jadon Sancho, that became his destination of choice.
He flew to Germany for a medical, and the transfer was confirmed on 20 July 2020: he would join after Birmingham’s last match of the season. The undisclosed fee was understood by Sky Sports to be an initial £25 million – making him the most expensive 17-year-old in history – plus “several million more” dependent on performance-related criteria.
Jude has appeared in 132 games for Dortmund in three seasons. He has scored 24 goals.
