Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has given worrying news to the Real Madrid fans. The England international has been linked with a big-money move to Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

According to the report from SBNation, the Real Madrid target is set to miss the Euro 2024 qualifiers in June. There are reported fears that Bellingham could require surgery to cure a knee issue.

The teenager missed the all-important last Bundesliga game for German giants against FC Mainz. Eventually, it proved pivotal as Dortmund drew 2-2 to hand the title to rivals Bayern Munich. Bellingham's potential surgery could see him miss games against Malta, Macedonia, and Ukraine respectively. England manager Gareth Southgate would hope that the 19-year-old recovers soon and return to first-team action.

Bellingham has been considered as one of the top midfielders in world football. He is predicted to win the Ballon d'Or in the future. As Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are ageing, it is the perfect time for Real Madrid to dip into the transfer market and revamp their midfield options. Apart from their dynamic duo, the Whites only have Eduardo Camawinga, Federico Valverde and Aurelien Tchouameni as their midfield options. Hence, it is important that they secure Bellingham instantly and allow him to bed into the squad.

It shouldn't be ignored that the Spanish Giants may have to splash the cash on their attack too. Karim Benzema has been linked with a move to Saudia Arabia this summer, where he could reunite with former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
