Borussia Dortmund have placed a whopping €120million price tag on midfielder Jude Bellingham amid interest from Liverpool and Real Madrid according to BILD.
Bellingham, 19, has become one of Europe’s hottest teenagers after thriving at Signal Iduna Park. The England midfielder has shown experience beyond his years at BvB, making 89 appearances while scoring 10 goals and creating 18 assists.
Dortmund seem keen to keep hold of Bellingham and have now imposed a whopping €120million price tag on the 19-year-old.
Liverpool and Real Madrid are two teams interested in the former Birmingham City youngster as he continues to develop into one of the best midfielders in Europe. They could face competition from Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United for the Englishman’s signature.
Bellingham’s impressive performances for Dortmund saw him become a mainstay in Gareth Southgate’s England national setup, earning 15 caps. He made his international debut aged just 17 years and 136 days, becoming the Three Lions’ third-youngest debutant.
Real Madrid beat Liverpool when they signed AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni earlier in this summer transfer window. It looks like the two European heavyweights could go head-to-head for another midfield star.
Liverpool and Real Madrid target Jude Bellingham has a bright future ahead of them
The Sun reports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham will soon become one of the best in the world.
That’s certainly plausible given the incredible rise to prominence Bellingham has enjoyed over his young career. The 19-year-old rose through the youth ranks at Birmingham City and quickly became one of the EFL Championship’s top stars.
The English teenager made 44 appearances for the Blues, scoring four goals and creating two assists. In a huge testament to Bellingham’s reputation at St Andrew’s, the club retired their number 22 shirt after he left for Dortmund in 2020 for £22.5million.
Not only did Bellingham impress in the Bundesliga, but the English youngster inspired the German side in Europe throughout last season.
The 19-year-old has three years left on his current contract and is said to be in no rush to return to England. This could mean he stays at Dortmund for one more season before a transfer war between Liverpool and Real Madrid ensues.
