Bellingham will soon be a Real Madrid player, and it seems like he was bidding farewell to his teammates at Borussia Dortmund on Sunday, only one day after the bittersweet conclusion of the Bundesliga. The two clubs are thought to have reached an agreement for £108 million ($133 million), with £87 million ($107.4 million) in guarantees and a further £21 million ($26 million) in performance-based add-ons.
To win the club’s first Bundesliga championship since 2012, Edin Terzic’s team just needed to defeat Mainz at home on the last day of the season. However, after falling down 2-0 early on, they were eventually held to a 2-2 draw. Jamal Musiala’s 89th-minute goal gave Bayern Munich a 2-1 victory away at Cologne, giving them a last-day triumph over their bitter rivals and a 10th consecutive championship.
Given the circumstances, his departure this summer may feel bittersweet, but he made sure to express his gratitude for his teammates and the Dortmund staff before he left.
After a team meeting on Sunday, the 19-year-old and his mother Denise distributed a number of presents as he gets ready to say goodbye to Dortmund, including a pair of personalised football boots that he presented to a club security officer. He even added his signature on the boots and added the closing phrase, “Thank you!”
The CEO of Dortmund is said to be in final negotiations with Real Madrid, and a formal announcement is anticipated next week. With 14 goals and seven assists this season, Bellingham led Dortmund in scoring in all competitions.
