Real Madrid, final winner of ‘Bellingham transfer saga’… Demand transfer fee of 212.2 billion won or more

The match for Jude Bellingham (20, Borussia Dortmund), which received a lot of attention from big clubs, ended with Real Madrid’s victory.

According to Britain’s ㅋㅋㅋ벳’90min’ on the 3rd (local time), Bellingham’s father and Real’s chief scout Huni Calafate met on the 1st. This encounter had a decisive influence on Bellingham’s choice. He almost solidified his mind with a move to Real Madrid. His contract is expected to run until June 2029.

In the meantime, many teams have paid attention to Bellingham. In particular, Real Madrid, Manchester City (hereafter Man City), and Liverpool actively moved. However, in April, Liverpool felt burdened by the huge transfer fee set for Bellingham and withdrew from the scout. There was a rivalry between Real and Manchester City, and Bellingham chose Real.

Dortmund is planning to demand the highest transfer fee ever. Dortmund’s highest transfer fee was 144 million euros (approximately 212.2 billion won), recorded when Ousmane Dembele moved to FC Barcelona in 2017. Dortmund are trying to get more than this amount. ‘Transfermarkt’ has set the current market value of Bellingham at 120 million euros (approximately 176.8 billion won).

Bellingham, a native of Birmingham’s youth team, made his professional debut in the 2019-2020 season playing in the English Championship. He became the hottest player in Europe at the moment when he moved to Dortmund for the 2020-2021 season. 

He displayed his talent and skills as a central midfielder. This season, he scored 5 goals and 5 assists in 29 German Bundesliga games, and is active as a key resource for the team, recording 11 goals and 7 assists in 40 games of the season.

Luka Modric (38) and Toni Kroos (33) have been in charge of Real for a long time, but the time has come to gradually change to younger players. With the recruitment of Bellingham, a generational change in midfield has been made with Federico Valverde (25), an all-weather midfielder.

Dortmund have already prepared a replacement for Bellingham. ’90min’ said, “Dortmund plans to bring Daichi Kamada (Eintracht Frankfurt) as a free agent.”
