Real Madrid’s summer transfer wishlist includes two players currently applying their trade in the Bundesliga, according to SportBild.
It’s also reported that should Real get all three of their main targets, their net spending for that window would be over €300m.
The first of the two is Borussia Dortmund and England star Jude Bellingham. It’s reported that BVB wouldn’t accept any bids below the €100m mark. A number of other clubs are also interested in Bellingham including Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City.
Last week, it was widely reported that Jude Bellingham’s father, Mark Bellingham, held talks with Real Madrid transfer bosses to discuss a possible move to the club.
However, a deal is far from complete. Dortmund could demand up to €150m for the 19-year-old. What’s more, the club have not yet given up on getting Bellingham to stay for one more season. BVB will reportedly offer the Englishman a heavy increase in his contract, taking his annual yearly pay to €15m.
The second is João Cancelo who is currently on loan at Bayern Munich from Manchester City. Bayern have the opportunity to purchase the right-back at the end of the season. Man City would like a fee of around €70m but it’s unlikely for the Bavarian club to submit such a high price. Should Man City be willing to negotiate, a permanent deal could be on the cards. However, Real are also in search of an experienced right-back. What’s more, Cancelo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is close friends with the Real president.
