Roberto Firmino, a star player for Liverpool, is reportedly wanted by Real Madrid ahead of the 2023–2024 football season. Since signing from Hoffenheim for £29 million in the summer of 2015, 31-year-old Firmino has been an essential component of Jurgen Klopp’s pressing system. He has contributed to the Reds’ seven victories.
The 55-cap Brazil international, a technical operator blessed with flair and dribbling, has been the talk of the town for a few months. Since his contract is set to expire in the summer, a number of European and even Saudi Arabian clubs have been interested in his future.
Defensa Central claims that Real Madrid is monitoring Firming’s contract situation with the intention of acquiring him during a Bosman transfer this summer. Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Los Blancos, admires the attacker because he is regarded as trustworthy.
Since Mariano Diaz is likely to leave at the end of the season, the giants of La Liga are also expected to look for an experienced forward in the transfer market. The recent injuries to Karim Benzema may also force the Santiago Bernabeu team to intensify their pursuit of Firmino.
In the meantime, Liverpool and Firmino are discussing extending his contract. According to Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg, the nimble-footed forward is said to be pushing for a new contract that will last until June 2025. In 348 appearances across competitions for the Merseyside club, Firmino has contributed 78 assists and scored 107 goals.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano stated in his column “Caught Offside” that Real Madrid and Liverpool target Jude Bellingham is likely to leave in the summer. He penned: “Obviously, it is normal for Borussia Dortmund to want Jude Bellingham to stay. However, despite speaking with a variety of sources, I still believe Bellingham will leave in the summer.
It will be extremely challenging for BVB to keep him because there are too many elite clubs interested in signing him.” Since the beginning of the previous summer’s transfer window, teams like Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester City have been interested in Bellingham, who is 19 years old.
He is worth somewhere around £132 million. In 114 appearances across competitions for Edin Terzic’s team, he has scored 20 goals and provided 22 assists since moving to BVB from Birmingham City for £25 million in the summer of 2020.
