Jude Bellingham has officially joined Real Madrid, and it is a loss difficult to replace for Borussia Dortmund. The England international was the main engine that made the BVB midfield tick. Still, the club must move on and carefully choose a replacement to lead their title charge for next season.

Several names have been thrown around by the media as possible Jude Bellingham replacements, but reports suggest that Sebastian Kehl and Edin Terzić haven’t decided on the ideal candidate yet.

Considering Borussia Dortmund like to develop young players and turn them into stars, signing a rising player might be the most realistic and shrewd possibility for the club. Bellingham himself was signed as a 17 year old, but established himself as a world class player and earned his big money move to Real Madrid.

If Borussia Dortmund decide to maintain their tradition and replace Bellingham with an unproven but talented youngster, it may be worth scouting Brazil for potential options. The South American nation is the home of many BVB legends, like Júlio César, Dedê, and Amoroso, and the next in line could be the talented Fluminense midfielder, André.
