Real Madrid announce the signing of Jude Bellingham | international football

a real madrid It was announced, this Wednesday morning, the signing of midfielder Judd Bellingham. With the right to quote the Beatles’ “Hey Jude”, Merengue officially announces the arrival of the 19-year-old athlete, who has played for Borussia Dortmund for the past three seasons.

Bellingham’s contract with the Spanish club runs until June 2029, and is valid for six seasons. This Thursday, the player will be presented at the CT of Real Madrid. The transfer value is 103 million euros (543 million Brazilian reals). Meringue can still pay out bonuses of up to 30% of the official transfer value.

At Real Madrid, Bellingham represents the continuation of the strategy of recruiting young talent. In recent seasons, the club has had success with names like Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo, Federico Valverde, Tchoameni and Camavinga. The new signing is also a natural succession to Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Bellingham arrived at Borussia Dortmund in 2020 after his first season as a professional in Birmingham, where he was scouted in the youth categories. The youngster exploded in German football and quickly became one of the first team players where he stayed for three seasons.

Elected player of the year in the last Bundesliga, he saw the national title escape in the final round, with a stumbling block at home to Mainz – when he didn’t even take to the field. His only title at Dortmund was the German Cup in 2020/21.
