Borussia Dortmund confident of signing Man United-linked Bellingham this summer – Telegraph

Birmingham standout

Jude Bellingham is one of the hottest young prospects in English football right now.

Despite being just 16 years of age, Bellingham has become a mainstay for Championship outfit Birmingham City.

Bellingham has notched 34 appearances across all competitions for Birmingham’s senior side this term, in which he has scored four and assisted three.

The Birmingham youth product is a central midfielder by trade, but he has shown great versatility this season, playing in numerous roles such as left midfield, right midfield and even up top on one occasion.

Bellingham is also becoming a regular in England’s youth sides, featuring 11 times for their under-16 side and on three occasions for the Three Lions’ under-17 team.

Borrusia Dortmund to beat Man United to Jude Bellingham

Rather unsurprisingly, given what a talent Bellingham appears to be, the Birmingham youngster looks to be attracting the attention of some of Europe’s heavyweights.

As per the reliable Duncan Castles, Manchester United made a ‘substantial’ offer for Bellingham in the January transfer window.

It was then reported by Sky Sports News that Chelsea had entered the battle with Man United for Bellingham.

Premier League champions Manchester City were also said to have joined Man United in the race for Bellingham.

However, it looks as though all of those Premier League powerhouses will miss out on Birmingham’s hottest prospect.

According to the Telegraph, German giants Borussia Dortmund are confident of signing Bellingham this summer.

The report from the Telegraph also mentions that Man United are among Bellingham’s suitors, but they then claim that Dortmund believe they can tempt him to Germany.
