The Blancos are keen to add another young midfielder to their ranks.

Real Madrid are reportedly considering a summer move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham.

The England international has attracted interest from a number of elite clubs due to his fantastic form at Dortmund.

Having established himself as one of the most promising young midfielders in Europe, Bellingham seems ready to make his next move.

According to Goal, Real Madrid have made the teenager their main transfer target for the next summer.

The Blancos have shown their offers to young stars are very hard to reject in recent seasons. However, they might face competition from as many as six Premier League sides for Bellingham’s signature.

With Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militao all receiving Spanish citizenship, Real Madrid will have enough space to add three new non-EU players to their ranks.

As a British citizen, Bellingham could fill out one of those spots if he joins the Blancos next summer. It would be a continuation of Real Madrid’s highly-successful efforts to rebuild their midfield line in the past few years.

Bellingham could find his place alongside the likes of Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, who are in the process of establishing themselves as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric’s successors.
