For several weeks the rapprochement of the Real Madrid a Jude Bellingham has intensified and the Borussia Dortmund he knows. For this reason, according to ‘AS’, the German team wants to speed up the management of the transfer of their star player and analyze the best decision for his future, taking his perspective into account in an open dialogue.
The information from the aforementioned media is that Dortmund has summoned the 19-year-old midfielder to a very important meeting, scheduled for before January 6, in order to discuss his decision regarding his departure from the team. There are two options: that it be sold in this winter market or wait until June 2023 to finalize its exit to the Spanish team.
This meeting will take place before January 6 because the ‘Bees’ will make a twelve-day trip to Marbella, where they will do a mini preseason prior to the restart of the Bundesliga. The idea is that everything is defined by then, since Edin Terzić, the team’s technical director, must know who he will have between now and the end of the season.
At this ‘summit’ will be Mark Bellingham, Jude’s father and agent; Mark Bennett, advisor to the father; Hans-Joaquim Watzke and Sebastian Kehl, CEO and sports director respectively of Borussia and, of course, the footballer in question. Since all parties are convinced that his departure is imminent, it is believed that it will not take long to define his departure or permanence in the German team.
Jude Bellingham’s contract expires in 2025 and, as recently learned, does not have a termination clause. Thus, Borussia Dortmund would not accept less than 100 million euros plus some extra variables for objectives met, which would be around between 30 and 40 million euros.
The Borussia Dortmund strategist
The Borussia Dortmund It has been characterized by being a team that does not make it difficult for its stars to leave, because they believe that this is the correct policy to generate income from their investments. Said plan was also applied with Erling Haaland and the sale of him to Manchester City, and the play went perfectly.
Jude Bellingham He was hired in 2020 when he was just 16 years old for a modest price of 20 million euros. Thus, what they would get from the sale of him would exceed expectations and generate a significant income in the club’s coffers.
It must be taken into account that, although Real Madrid has not yet made a formal proposal for Bellingham -Liverpool and Manchester City are also interested-, they have been talking with those around the midfielder. In addition, the relationship between Florentino Pérez and Hans-Joaquim Watzke is one of the best -especially after Achraf Hakimi’s loan-, which would facilitate a future negotiation with money on the table.
