Manchester City are growing confident they can land Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer although Real Madrid remain in the race for the midfielder's signature, sources have told ESPN.

Bellingham is among City's top targets ahead of the summer transfer window despite Dortmund not giving up hope of keeping the 19-year-old for at least one more year.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also interested in Bellingham, but sources have told ESPN that City and Madrid remain the most likely destinations should he leave Germany at the end of the season.

Madrid are monitoring Bernardo Silva's situation at the Etihad if they miss out on Bellingham, ESPN sources said.
