Jude Bellingham joined Real Madrid for a huge transfer fee of €103 million plus bonuses. They are going to bring Conor Gallagher from Chelsea instead. The Blues want at least €50 million for the England midfielder. Mahmoud Dahoud also decided to leave Dortmund as a free agent and joined Brighton. Instead, they are going to get Edson Alvarez for 30 million euros. However, Ajax are asking for at least 40 million euros for the Mexican midfielder.
Bellingham left for Madrid as the transfer window opened with a massive €103m contract and add-ons. If the applications go through, the payout could be as much as 134 million euros. The huge amount the player signed for Dortmund will help them bring in a number of replacements. However, he is not the only one they are worried about. Like a very talented youngster, they lost key players like Mahmoud Dahoud, Mats Hummels and Rafael Guerreiro.
Thomas Meunier, Ansgar Knauff and Anthony Modeste were also set to leave Dortmund. The absence of Bellingham, Dahoud and Guerreiro, who are the main midfielders, will cause problems for the Dortmund team. They are already trying to bring Conor Gallagher from Chelsea to replace Bellingham. “Chelsea” plans to sell several players of its team. Their losses last season led to a situation that led to their downfall.

Last season, Chelsea also lost almost 141 million euros during the COVID period. They also blamed former owner Roman Abramovich for their loss. In any case, they should recover his losses. To do this, they started a flash sale in this transfer window. They are close to selling four players to four Saudi clubs. Three more players are expected to move to other European clubs. Conor Gallagher could now join Dortmund if they agree to pay €50m, Chelsea’s asking price.
It will be difficult for Dortmund to negotiate and lower this price, as everyone knows how much they earned in the Bellingham deal. In addition, Dortmund offered to pay 30 million euros for Ajax player Edson Alvarez instead of Dahoud. However, “Ajax” is asking 40 million euros for the talented midfielder. Dortmund will face the problem of negotiations with Ajax. However, they still need to negotiate and find a solution as they will have to bring in more players than these two midfielders.
