Real Madrid seem to be taking all of the right steps to convince Jude Bellingham to join them. Perhaps the trickier part of the negotiation will be to work out how to afford him.
As per Relevo, Los Blancos are somewhat optimistic about securing the 19-year-old’s signature. Recent details of Bellingham’s desire to play for Real Madrid and the fact his idol is Zinedine Zidane is giving Los Blancos plenty of hope that they can persuade Bellingham that the Santiago Bernabeu is the place for him.
However there is also the battle with Manchester City and Liverpool. Both sides will be able to outbid Real Madrid financially, but what they had not counted on was Borussia Dortmund raising the cost.
In their attempts to renew Bellingham’s deal, die Schwarzgelben are willing to give him €15m per year to stay. Real Madrid had not anticipated paying him so much, and if they have to increase Dortmund’s offer, it would put him amongst their top earners.
The probability is that Los Blancos would be able to meet Bellingham’s demands if they wanted to, although they will no doubt set limits for their negotiations. It may impact them elsewhere though, as Florentino Perez might decide to make cuts in other areas to facilitate a deal.
“decide to make cuts in other areas to facilitate a deal.”
One word: Hazard. Terminate his contract. Buy him out. Accept any offer from Murkans. Do whatevers neccessary to get his wage off the books.
Insert performance clauses in future.
You’d have to pay him his remaining salary to terminate his contract… best you can hope is he gets a better offer from the Saudis or the MLS and decides to leave
Thats where the issue lies, the parasite wont leave voluntarily. He has had offers from Newcastle and China, shot both down. He likes it here, you know. Winning CLs by sitting on bench while getting fed millions is cozy.
Either way, were paying him money and either way, he isnt playing for us for rest of his contract; Carlo isnt starting him anymore after that atrocious CDR game where he barely touched the ball for 67 min. We sure as heII arent benching Vini for him either.
Might as well free up a roster space and wages just because as of right now, only difference between him being bought out and not bought out is the word “not”.
He aint playing.
