Pundit gives an update on Jude Bellingham transfer

Jude Bellingham is expected to leave Dortmund next summer.

The England international has been linked with a host of elite clubs this summer but Dortmund won’t let him go this season.

Liverpool are very much interested in the 19-year-old midfielder and he is excited by the prospect of Premier League football.

“Very interested. The England midfielder is a class act and it’s hard to believe he’s only just turned 19. However, he won’t be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer. Having already sold Erling Haaland to Manchester City, the Bundesliga club don’t intend to lose another star name in the same window,” Pearce wrote in his Liverpool Mailbag.

“There will be serious competition for Bellingham’s signature in 2023. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United are also in the race, with reports in Germany this week suggesting it would take €120 million (£103 million) to sign him. Bellingham doesn’t have a release clause and has three years left on his contract.

“Liverpool will certainly be in the conversation and it helps that Bellingham has a good relationship with captain Jordan Henderson from their time together with England.

“I don’t think that fee would scare Liverpool off as you’re talking about a player who could be at the heart of their midfield for a decade. However, the wage demands could be a potential stumbling block.”
