Real Madrid seem to have won the race for Bellingham

Real Madrid are closing in on a deal to sign Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham, according to Marca.
Real Madrid are said to have moved ahead in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham.

According to Marca, Real Madrid are working to complete a deal with both Bellingham and Borussia Dortmund, with the England international said to prefer a move to the Spanish capital.

Knowing this, Liverpool and Manchester City have withdrawn their interest in the highly-rated central midfielder, according to the Spanish publication.

The two clubs are apparently in talks over a transfer fee, with Dortmund demanding 140 million and Real Madrid hoping to bring the price down to 100-120 million.

If there are no setbacks in the remaining negotiations, Bellingham is expected to sign a contract with Real Madrid until 2029.
