Real Madrid are working to reduce the transfer fee for Jude Bellingham.
“Real want to lower Bellingham’s transfer fee through a swap deal with Brahim Dias,” Italian media outlet Calciomercato reported on Feb. 22 (KST).
Real are pushing hard to sign Bellingham. They have reportedly already agreed to a six-year contract with a €20 million ($290 million) annual fee.
By comparison, negotiations with Borussia Dortmund have stalled. Dortmund are sticking to their €150 million price tag for Bellingham, while Real want €100 million.
Real have a solution. According to reports, Real plan to use Brahim, who returns from his loan this summer, as leverage in negotiations for a move to Bellingham.먹튀검증
Dortmund are also likely to be interested. The outlet says: “Dortmund are looking for an attacking midfielder in the number 10 role this summer. They would be interested in including Brahim in a deal.”
