Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid have reached an agreement on a fee of 103 million euros plus bonuses for the transfer of Jude Bellingham.
The Jude Bellingham transfer saga is about to come to an end, with the midfielder expected to complete his move to Real Madrid in the coming days. Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they will receive a fixed fee of 103 million euros plus up to 30% of the fee in performance related add-ons.
Bellingham’s former club Birmingham City will receive 5% of the transfer fee, due to a sell-on clause in his contract. The club expects to make a profit of at least 77 million euros from the sale.
The England international will now undergo a medical in the coming days before signing his contract with Real Madrid.
Jude Bellingham’s move away from Borussia Dortmund seemed to be inevitable after he established himself as one of the world’s best midfielders. Manchester City and Liverpool were also interested in signing the 19 year old, but Real Madrid have seemingly prevailed in the race for his signature.
Losing Bellingham will be a big blow for Borussia Dortmund, who will now turn their attentions towards finding a replacement. The Black and Yellows have been linked with a number of midfielders in recent weeks, and are said to be leading the race to sign Edson Álvarez from Ajax.
Bellingham is coming off an excellent third season with Borussia Dortmund, and won the Bundesliga players’ player of the season award on Wednesday. Now he is set to complete his transfer to Real Madrid.
