Real Madrid would like to lower the price of Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund) by including Eduardo Camavinga in the operation. The French, however, would not intend to leave.
According to information obtained by Sky Sport Germany, Real Madrid are looking for a solution to reduce the amount of the transfer of Jude Bellingham. Florentino Perez, its president, would notably consider including Eduardo Camavinga in the deal, so as to pay “only” 100 million euros. Borussia Dortmund’s response to this proposal is not known. But that of the French player is: he would not intend to leave Madrid.
A real phenomenon, Jude Bellingham is followed by many clubs, including Liverpool and Manchester City. Borussia Dortmund would not intend to sell him off and the press has already mentioned the possibility of a transfer between 150 and 200 million euros. An XXL sum, even for Real Madrid. The formation of Florentino Perez must indeed find successors to Lukas Modric and Toni Kroos. And he must also find a replacement for Karim Benzema, which should generate another big expense.

Camavinga has a contract that runs until 2027
The Madrid president’s plan to reduce spending should therefore not work. Despite his reduced playing time, Eduardo Camavinga would like to continue in the white tunic. The 20-year-old player has taken part in 27 games this season, including only 12 as a starter. His contract runs until June 2027, which means Real Madrid don’t have a handle on his case.
In addition to his work on future recruitment, Real Madrid are looking for a successor to Carlo Ancelotti, who is facing a lot of criticism this season. The Merengue club could bet on Xabi Alonso, who is doing great things on the Bayer Leverkusen bench. His team is currently at 9e position in the Bundesliga standings, with 21 points obtained in 16 rounds.
