Double Liverpool transfer blow as Bellingham chooses next club & Real Madrid ‘very close’ to €30m Reds target – reports

Posted by

Liverpool could have a potential dream 2023 transfer window once again scuppered by Real Madrid should Los Blancos successfully complete moves for both Joao Gomes and long-admired midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are reportedly said to be ‘very close’ to the former (and are allegedly prepared to fork out €30m to sign him), according to a tweet from ESPN’s Martin Liberman (via AS) whilst Jose Alvarez Haya, speaking to El Chiringuito (via Caught Offside), has claimed that the latter has already decided he’d like a switch to the Champions League holders.

It’s plausible to a certain degree that the La Liga leaders are keeping an eye on the Brazilian holding midfielder, particularly if Jurgen Klopp’s outfit are one of his potential suitors.

That being said, comments made to El Chiringuito feel more like speculation at this stage and we’d be inclined to argue that the Reds stand a better chance of snapping up Bellingham than some would give us credit for.

There’s no question that it would be incredibly frustrating to see Liverpool pipped once again to not one but two linked talents after a prior summer window that saw Aurelien Tchouameni favour a move to the Spanish capital over Merseyside.

The reality remains that it’s far from likely we’ll go through another major transfer window without reinforcing the midfield.

The project at Anfield arguably remains far too attractive for us to fail on potential fronts next year.

  1. why do players opt to go to real madrid or barcalona, well lets say the weather helps plus they are will definintely win the league more than once as history tells us over 40 years either on of them have won the league about 34 to 35 times between them and this indicates its a poor league but we know the prem is hard and city are top dog at the moment and that can change but the spanish league won’t but as i say that’s just my opinion.

  2. aw well it’s now fully confirmed bellingham is off to RM and he will probably go there for around 63 million and dormond getting back the out lay of all the wages and fee’s paid out while he was there plus a profit, buts thats footy.
