Highly sought after midfielder Jude Bellingham is reportedly set to reject Bayern Munich and Manchester United in favour of a move to Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Despite being only 16 years old, Bellingham is enjoying an impressive breakthrough campaign in the second division of English football with Birmingham City. The midfielder has become a crucial player for his side this season and already has 35 senior appearances to his name in all competitions, scoring four goals and assisting three in the process.
His impressive performances have attracted the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs. Reports claimed last week that Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Chelsea are all willing to meet Birmingham City’s asking price of 30 million pounds to sign him in the summer.
Now SportBILD report that the young Englishman will turn down interest from Bayern Munich and Manchester United, and wants to play for the Black and Yellows next season.
Borussia Dortmund were interested in signing Bellingham last summer as well, when they could have had him on a free transfer. But he ended up staying with Birmingham City.
But now it looks like Dortmund are about to finally get their man, despite heavy interest from other clubs. Bellingham recently visited Manchester United at their Carrington training ground, with the English side reportedly confident of concluding a deal.
With Borussia Dortmund also on the verge of completing the signing of PSG right-back Thomas Meunier, it looks like preparations for next season are well and truly underway at the club.
