Real Madrid have secured the signing of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in a deal reportedly worth 100 million pounds plus add-ons.
The 19-year-old England International has accepted a contract that will keep him with the Spanish powerhouse until the summer of 2029.
According to reports, Jude Bellingham’s blockbuster transfer deal to Real Madrid will be announced next week when the transfer window officially opens.
It was reported in May that Real Madrid had reached an agreement with Jude Bellingham before German Bundesliga League came to an end.
However, at this point, the final transfer fee has been finalized after the deal was agreed between Real Madrid and Dortmund.
He will be a part of a stunning midfield lineup that includes players like Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni.
When Toni Kroos and Luka Modric leave the Spanish capital after their sparkling spells, Los Blancos may be in a better position to handle their departures because of the addition of Bellingham to their ranks.
Meanwhile, After Dortmund’s heartbreaking Bundesliga title loss on Saturday, 27th of May, the England star gave out a lot of farewell gifts.
The 19-year-old and his mother Denise distributed several gifts following a team meeting on Sunday, to say goodbye to Dortmund and his teammates.
One of the gifts was a pair of football boots that the player had personally signed and given to a club security guard.
Even the boots have his signature and the final words, “Thank you!”
Jude Bellingham had been heavily linked with a move to several European clubs such as Manchester City, Liverpool, and Paris Saints Germain before Real Madrid hijacked the deal and land him on a six years contract.
Jude Bellingham’s representatives begin house hunting in Madrid ahead of his scheduled £100m-plus move to the Spanish capital.
Bellingham, who went from Birmingham to Germany when he was 16 years old, is accustomed to living abroad, and his family has already started the process of making sure he settles well in Madrid.
Before the official announcement of his transfer in the upcoming weeks, his representatives have been searching for apartments in the city.
What’s next for Jude Bellingham?
The 19-year-old will be looking forward to joining the 14 times UEFA Champions League winning club when the transfer window officially opens on June 14.
