Real Madrid signing Bellingham isn't dependent on future of Modric and Kroos

Questions loom large within the ranks of Real Madrid fans when it comes to the reported signing Jude Bellingham. Would he arrive to replace Luka Modric? Does it mean farewell to Toni Kroos? It's neither.

Los Blancos have marked the name of the English midfielder in red, and his possible arrival has nothing to do with the decisions taken on the Croatian or the German.

Everything follows a strategy, a future project that goes through the Borussia Dortmund player whether or not Kroos and Modric are in the side

History can repeat itself a year later. In June 2022, Real Madrid sealed the signing of Tchouameni and nothing foretold that Casemiro would leave for Manchester United months later.

The club signed a player they considered strategic, a circumstance that may be repeated with Bellingham, given they consider the Englishman a real difference maker.

Generational change

At Valdebebas there is talk about the need to renew the squad, introducing new blood and getting them used to the new trends of current football.

Strength, speed and verticality which is already represented by Valverde, Camavinga, Tchouameni, and a Bellingham who would be a perfect fit after what he has shown at Borussia Dortmund and confirmed at the World Cup.

For seven years, Real Madrid has had a midfield formed by Casemiro, Kroos and Modric that has performed well.

No one at Los Blancos has looked for a replacement for each player, and are only considering players who can prolong the dominance shown by the aforementioned three.

The Brazilian has already left and now it remains to be seen what the decision will be on the other two.

Modric showed in Qatar that he still has something left in the tank. Kroos is still going about his business, giving lessons on what it means to play football.

Any decision by both will be respected by the club.

To all this, we must add the decision the club will make regarding Dani Ceballos. There is no contract offer at the moment and January looks to be a decisive month.

The matches are accumulating and the Andalusian can vindicate himself on the pitch, but continuity has proven tricky.

Bellingham report

Bellingham has characteristics that both players have. He knows how to distribute and set the pace, something that Kroos does well. In addition, he can find the goal with ease, something he has in common with Modric.

The Englishman has a little bit of both players, but he has his own style as well. His career is on an upward trajectory, but he is still far from demonstrating what his potential teammates have shown.

The fact is that Real Madrid are trying to put together a midfield that can resemble the one formed by Kross, Casemiro and Modric.

That's very complicated because of the quality and understanding shown, but management is trying. At the moment, the bricks are already in place.

The battle to seal his signature is expected to be tough, complicated and long. Bellingham himself will be the next to speak, as Borussia Dortmund has asked him to do.

It seems that Real Madrid have the upper hand. The next moves will be key to clear up the unknowns.v
