Real Madrid reach agreement to sign Jude Bellingham, medical scheduled for coming days
He won the DFB-Pokal with Borussia Dortmund
The Athletic reports that Bellingham will soon undergo a medical test, suggesting that the Spanish powerhouses are getting close to finalising this intriguing move.
The England international has made significant progress at Dortmund following his departure from Birmingham City for the Bundesliga when he was barely 17 years old, consolidating himself as one of the most intriguing young players in the world over the past few years.
Jude Bellingham, now 19 years old, is making strides once again as he gets ready to join Real Madrid as the club’s newest expensive Galactico acquisition.
Manchester City, which also had an interest in Bellingham, didn’t make a formal bid for the midfielder, according to The Athletic.

It appears that Jude Bellingham picked Real Madrid as his final stop; therefore, it is unclear when we may expect to see him return to England.
Following the departure of team icon Karim Benzema last week, this collection of transfer news is a huge boost for Real.
The youngster is anticipated to sign the six-year contract, which was agreed upon in April and is good until June 2029. According to Fabrizio Romano, “€103m fee plus bonuses. Add-ons can amount to 30% of the fixed amount.”
Real Madrid will now have one of the finest midfielders in Europe thanks to Bellingham’s signing. The team already features senior midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, along with youngsters like Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni, and Federico Valverde.
They have a midfielder covered for years to come, and now that Benzema has left, Real needs a top striker for next season.
The Los Blancos have already constructed a strong midfield, but it still needs the rest of the group to work together effectively as Modric and Kroos did on the field to build a fluent midfield.
