Manchester City reportedly thinks Real Madrid has the upper hand in signing Jude Bellingham, as reported by Football Insider. They have not given up on trying to recruit a Borussia Dortmund player who scored 14 goals last season. The midfielder’s future may lie in Spain, though.
Under Pep Guardiola, Manchester City has been a club that has sought to fill just a few gaps in each transfer window. They have behaved similarly in recent years. This trend may continue into the summer. The coach is on the market for a new midfielder and potentially other players.
Ever since Manchester City learned that Bellingham would be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, they have been keeping an eye on the 14-goal hero
Given the potential departure of Ilkay Gundogan, Manchester City desperately needs a new midfielder. The German will be a free agent at the end of the season. It seems that Barcelona is the frontrunner to sign him. The 32-year-old has been a key contributor to Guardiola’s team. The club was considering Jude Bellingham as a possible replacement.

Ever since Manchester City learned that Bellingham would be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, they have been keeping an eye on the 14-goal hero. Liverpool was the frontrunner for quite some time. However, the Merseyside club pulled out of the race because of the high price tag put on the player.
In reality, only a small number of teams have the resources to pursue such high-priced talent. Manchester City may be one of just two or three clubs in the world capable of paying €150 million for Dortmund’s 14-goal hero.

They also include Real Madrid. Furthermore, they now have a commanding lead in the bidding for the England international. According to the media, the Spanish giants have reached an individual arrangement with Bellingham but have not yet reached an agreement with Dortmund.
Bellingham is expected to sign with Real Madrid this summer. Manchester City is prepared to accept defeat. According to reports, they are still in the running in case the sale runs into more difficulties. They’ve already started scouting potential replacements for Romeo Lavia and other talents like him.

Bellingham seemed to be a player Guardiola was interested in since he thought he might help his present team. Very few players can enhance the existing system, given that Manchester City is contending and is favoured to win three championships before the season finishes. The Premier League winners may have greatly benefited from the addition of the 14-goal stand out as a prospective replacement for Gundogan.
