Dortmund are working on a plan to extend Jude Bellingham’s contract by increasing the player’s salary by 150% at the club. In return, the player’s contract will have an additional release clause worth £131 million.
Bellingham is one of the most sought after players next summer. The English player is increasingly impressive and also has a successful 2022 World Cup. Currently, Dortmund is trying to keep Bellingham at.
Sporting director Sebastian Kehl is planning to invite the player and his father Mark Bellingham to the office to discuss. The Dortmund side is ready to offer Bellingham a salary increase if he stays at Signal Iduna Park for at least one more season.
Dortmund want to make Bellingham a £13m-a-season offer, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history. But in return, the English player’s contract will have an additional release clause worth £131 million. This helps Dortmund earn a large amount of money from the sale of Bellingham, and also opens the opportunity to recruit this player for teams to pursue.
But if Bellingham agrees to stay at Dortmund, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Man City will have to receive a big blow. These teams all need to add Bellingham to the squad next summer and do not want to wait any longer.
It is known that the top European teams will do everything possible to recruit Bellingham. Real Madrid is still the number 1 candidate in this deal. Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are both aging and it is clear that Real need a player next to them who can shoulder the responsibility in the middle of the team.
