Just days after Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid completed the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni, the LaLiga champions have reportedly opened negotiations for a rising England star.
With Los Blancos having already secured Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger's services, their spending looks set to continue ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Here are some of the best images from Tchouameni's Real unveiling on Tuesday!
According to Cadena Ser, Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham is now a target for Ancelotti's side, with talks having begun.
The club had previously enquired about the 18-year-old during their failed negotiations for Erling Haaland last season.
The report adds that Real president Florentino Perez is looking to secure Bellingham's services before his price increases even further, in a move that would see him join the Spanish giants at the end of the next season only, when Luka Modric and Toni Kroos' contracts expire.
It is further claimed the timing of the actual transfer makes sense for Los Blancos because their non-European quota is already filled, with Eder Militao, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior occupying the three positions, while two other non-EU internationals, Takefusa Kubo and Reinier Jesus, are out on loan.
However, both Vinicius and Militao are set to obtain dual nationality in 2023, which would open up a spot for Bellingham to be registered by Real for the 2023/24 campaign.
It is believed the 14-time UEFA Champions League winners will put €90 million (R1.5 billion) on the table for the Three Lions midfielder.
However, Real are expected to face stiff competition for Bellingham's signature, with English giants Liverpool said to also be targeting the England international.
