Liverpool-linked Jude Bellingham speaks out on long-term future

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has been speaking about his long-term future.

Bellingham joined Dortmund in 2020 from Birmingham and has since proven himself as one of the best young talents in world football.

The 19-year-old has put on countless displays well beyond his years, including on several occasions in the Champions League.

Bellingham is an excellent box-to-box option and would likely fit perfectly into Jurgen Klopp’s three-man midfield, replacing the ageing pair of Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

However, after already selling Erling Haaland to Manchester City this summer, BVB did not want to let another top star go, with Bellingham staying put this year.

But when the 2023 summer transfer window rolls around, there is expected to be a fight to land the former Birmingham man.

Liverpool are one of the main teams interested in the midfielder, which is to be expected given their struggles in midfield.

Elsewhere, both Manchester United and Chelsea have also been linked.

Now, speaking ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League clash with Manchester City on Wednesday, Bellingham was asked about his future and had this to say:

“The club [Dortmund] have done loads for me and made me feel very welcome since I first came and gave me the opportunities to develop even further. To look past that and into the future would be disrespectful,” he said.

“It’s not something I am thinking about, to be honest. [There is] a massive game against Man City. To even be thinking about something like that would be crazy.”
