In the world of football, the rumour mill never stops churning, and the latest buzz is all about Jude Bellingham, the young English prodigy, seemingly on the brink of swapping the vibrant atmosphere of Signal Iduna Park for the grandeur of Santiago Bernabeu.
The whispers are growing louder, suggesting that Real Madrid is on the verge of securing Bellingham’s signature, with only the transfer fee left to be ironed out between the Spanish giants and Borussia Dortmund.
Just when we thought the plot couldn’t thicken any further, a new twist emerged today. The grapevine was abuzz with speculation that Real Madrid might sweeten the deal by throwing in Brahim Diaz, their on-loan star at AC Milan, to lower the hefty transfer fee.
Diaz, who has been turning heads with his stellar performances in Italy, has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, including heavyweights Liverpool and Arsenal.
However, it appears that this particular rumour has been put to bed. Renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano, known for his reliable insider scoops, debunked the speculation on his YouTube channel, stating unequivocally that Diaz will not be part of the Bellingham deal.
As for Bellingham, the price tag to lure him away from Dortmund is rumoured to be north of €120 million – a princely sum, but one that could prove to be a bargain considering the immense potential of this 19-year-old wonderkid.
Already touted as one of the best midfielders in the world, Bellingham could be the perfect candidate to fill the shoes of Real Madrid’s midfield maestros, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

So, it seems that Diaz will remain a separate entity in this high-stakes game of football chess.
As for Diaz, his future remains shrouded in uncertainty. Despite his impressive stint at AC Milan, it’s unclear what role he would play upon his return to Real Madrid this summer.
Will he find a place in the star-studded lineup, or will he be another pawn in the transfer market? Only time will tell. But for now, all eyes are on Bellingham and his potential move to the Spanish capital.
