According to the Daily Mirror, Man City and Real Madrid are two teams competing fiercely for the Jude Bellingham deal.
Recently, the British press confirmed that Liverpool decided not to pursue a deal for Jude Bellingham this summer. The reason is that spending an insane amount of money to sign the England international will limit coach Jurgen Klopp’s plans to overhaul the squad.
Bellingham has been Liverpool’s “top transfer target” for more than a year. However, the price is too high, Dortmund may refuse to sell, plus the number of positions that need to be cleared after a disappointing season that led to The Kop pulling out of the race.
In addition to Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint‑Germain, Chelsea, Man Utd or Arsenal are also among the clubs interested in Bellingham. However, Man City has a high probability of winning this deal.
Specifically, according to Daily Mirror, Manchester City is leading Real Madrid in the race for Bellingham’s signature. However, they want assurance that the midfielder wants to work under Pep Guardiola before committing to a deal.
Dortmund are said to want around £135m plus additional terms in case they decide to sell Bellingham this summer. Bellingham’s value increased significantly after an impressive performance at the 2022 World Cup.
