Jude Bellingham story

At just 16-years-old Jude Bellingham was a regular for Birmingham City.

The precocious young midfielder understandably caught the eye of Europe’s elite with his impressive performances at such a young age in such a combative league.

There was fierce interest in his services but it was Borussia Dortmund who snapped him up.

The German giants snapped him up in a £25m deal. He impressed in his debut season for Dortmund, particularly shining in the Champions League.

His standout campaign has earned him a call up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2020.

Gary Lineker on Liverpool target Jude Bellingham

Eurosport reported previously that Liverpool are monitoring Jude Bellingham.

The outlet claimed the Reds are one of many sides keeping tabs on the precocious talent but Dortmund see him as a £100m player.

Gary Lineker has been full of praise for the youngster, telling the BBC Match of the Day top 10 Podcast:

“Look at Sancho, he plays in Germany and he can play that boy. Bellingham is also there who is what? 17? He’s unbelievable. The two games against City, he was up there with the best players on the pitch.”

What RTK has to say

Unbelievable hardly does the kid justice, he’s got the world at his feet.

Liverpool signing Bellingham could define the decade for the Reds.

The youngster has another 15 years in him, whatever we paid now would be paid back 10 fold down the years.

Unfortunately, we can’t see FSG sanctioning such an expensive move, maybe in a few years as his contract runs down.
