Liverpool is in negotiation of signing a star player

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham is expected to join Real Madrid in the coming weeks.

According to journalist James Pearce, Liverpool were heavily linked with a move for the England international but they decided to drop out of the race after they found out that a move to Anfield was not Bellingham’s priority.

It seems that the midfielder was considering the interest from Liverpool and Real Madrid simultaneously. The Spanish chants are now set to secure his services soon. Liverpool have not been able to match up to the player’s asking price.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in world football and he has the attributes to develop into a world-class player. Real Madrid needed to bring in central midfield reinforcements this summer and Bellingham should prove to be a superb long-term investment.

The England international will add physicality, creativity and control in the middle of the park. The likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are on their last legs and Real Madrid need to replace them adequately. Signing a player like Bellingham would be ideal and he could prove to be the ideal replacement for Luka Modric in the coming seasons.

The England midfielder has 14 goals across all competitions this season and he has the ability to compete at the highest level. A move to Real Madrid would be the ideal next step in his career and he will look to fulfill his potential with regular game time at the Spanish club.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are now looking at potential alternatives and it will be interesting to see if they can strengthen their midfield adequately before the start of the new season.

Liverpool have recently lost players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Naby Keita on free transfers and they will have to bring in multiple midfielders during the summer transfer window.

The Premier League side are reportedly keen on signing the World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion. They have been linked with players like Romeo Lavia and Manuel Ugarte in recent weeks as well.


Curtis Jones matches Steven Gerrard record as Liverpool legend urges Jurgen Klopp decision

The midfielder has enjoyed a brilliant end to the season.

Curtis Jones has matched Steven Gerrard’s 23-year record after making his 11th consecutive appearance in all competitions against Southampton.

Jones, 22, has enjoyed a brilliant end to the season after spending most of the campaign as a mostly unfavoured squad option.

His turnaround over the last month and a half has been exceptional, as the youngster has thrived in Liverpool’s new system, which has allowed him more opportunities to get forward.

And now his run in the side has brought an incredible statistical achievement; according to Opta, Jones is the youngest English midfielder to start 11+ consecutive games for Liverpool in all competitions since Gerrard in February 2000.

In fact, the legendary Liverpool midfielder recently spoke out on Jones, and his form, revealing that he told Klopp in the past to persevere with the talented youngster, and Klopp clearly listened.

“I remember having a conversation with Jürgen talking about Curtis and he was saying he has little things to improve and I said ‘stay with this kid, he will not let you down’” Gerrard told the Anfield Wrap.

Prior to his run in the side, he had only featured seven times, starting just the once before a start against Chelsea on April 4 sparked an 11-game run in the side.

During that run, he’s managed three goals and one assist – with his best performance coming in his man-of-the-match turn against Leicester, as he scored two brilliant goals.

From being one of Klopp’s least utilised players, the future now looks incredibly bright for Jones, and he may have even saved the club spending an extra £40m+ in the summer with his form.

With Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Arthur Melo all departing this summer, it’s likely the club will recruit in midfield which could jeopardise Jones’ future playing time.

The likes of Mason Mount and Alexis Mac Allister have been discussed and it’s likely Jones will have to fight to prove himself in the starting eleven next season.

But, as it stands, his form and the faith he’s repayed his manager should see him start next season in this Liverpool side.
