JUDE BELLINGHAM'S move to Real Madrid is "imminent", according to reports from Spanish media.
The Borussia Dortmund and England man, 19, is understood to have agreed terms with the LaLiga giants as he prepares to sign a six-year deal.
And he could be confirmed as a Los Blancos player as early as next week after the conclusion of the Bundesliga season.
Dortmund will win their first German title in 11 years if they beat Mainz on Saturday – a game Bellingham could miss through injury.
Nevertheless, it would be the perfect farewell for the teenager – who has been sensational for Dortmund since joining from Birmingham in 2020.
He has contributed 14 goals and seven assists in 42 club appearances this season.

He was also sensational for England at the World Cup.
And according to Marca, a "definitive" move to Real Madrid could come to fruition in the coming days.
Representatives from the 14-time European champions recently flew over to Germany to discuss a transfer.
His touch, vision and ability to burst into the area are all characteristics that have seduced Carlo Ancelotti's men into aggressively pursuing the England international.

Bellingham's contract offer from Real Madrid is said to be worth around £87million.
And it is believed he has left more lucrative offers on the table in order to play for the club – with Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all circling over the last 12 months.
He will join up with fellow young midfielders Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni as they bid to finally shift veteran legends Luka Modric and Toni Kroos from the first team.
But there is work for Real Madrid to do as the Copa del Rey is the only trophy they have managed to collect this season.
Barcelona strolled to the LaLiga title, with Xavi's men 11 points clear of Los Blancos ahead of the final two rounds of fixtures.
And Ancelotti's outfit were thrashed 5-1 on aggregate by Man City in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
