Dortmund willing to sell star player next summer

19-year-old English and Borussia Dortmund, Jude Bellingham may be available for merely "£83m next summer," as Manchester City and other clubs scrambles to get his signature.

According to The SUN, Jude Bellingham may depart Borussia Dortmund for around £83 million the following summer if all costs are paid in full.

The 19-year-old midfielder has already established himself as one of the most exciting young players in world football, with 100 caps for Borussia Dortmund and 16 for his country, England. He was widely praised as one of England’s few bright sparks in their 1-0 loss by Italy on Friday night.

Jude Bellingham had been reportedly valued by Borussia Dortmund at £130 million, but new report as claimed that he could be bought for much less. Manchester City remain the favourites to sign the English man alongside Liverpool, while Chelsea and Manchester United need Champions League football to stand a chance.

Manchester City and Liverpool have reportedly been targeting the midfielder since his Birmingham days. Chelsea are also big fans, while Manchester United would love to have him at Old Trafford, in order to bolster their midfield options under Eric Ten Haag’s regime.

For Liverpool, their recent injury struggles have brought their lack of depth into focus. The Reds are currently missing four key midfielders, and their results have been affected by absences this season.

Bringing in Bellingham could help Liverpool mitigate against future injury crises and begin to future-proof an ageing squad.

The Cityzens are certainly best-placed to get a hold of his signature, as they offer the best chance of silverware – and the opportunity to link up with his old Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland.

City have a decent relationship with Dortmund, having recently signed centre-back Manuel Akanji from the club, as well as Haaland and Gundogan.

The Germans had asked about signing Etihad youngster Liam Delap on loan in the last window, before he joined Stoke for the season, and he could be another bargaining chip.
