Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has been closely monitoring the progress of Bellingham, who has been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund this summer. However, with several clubs interested in the young English midfielder, Madrid may struggle to secure his signature.
As a result, Tielemans has emerged as a top target for Madrid as they look to bolster their midfield options. The 25-year-old has been struggling with injuries this season but managed to come back scoring 3 goals and registering 1 assist in 23 premier league appearances this season. He has also been a regular for the Belgian national team, earning 43 caps since making his debut in 2016.
Tielemans possesses the excellent technical ability and has a strong work rate, making him an ideal fit for Real Madrid’s midfield. He is capable of playing in a variety of roles, including as a deep-lying playmaker, a box-to-box midfielder, or an attacking midfielder.
Leicester is likely to demand a significant fee for Tielemans, who joined the club for a reported fee of around £32 million in 2019. However, Madrid is known for their willingness to spend big on top players, and Tielemans could prove to be a valuable addition to their squad if they are unable to secure Bellingham’s services.
Only time will tell whether Real Madrid can persuade Bellingham to join the club or if they will turn their attention to Tielemans as an alternative. Nonetheless, it is clear that Madrid is keen to reinforce their midfield this summer, and both players would undoubtedly improve the squad.
