Liverpool could reportedly make a dramatic swoop for Jude Bellingham this summer if the midfielder’s move to Real Madrid collapses.
According to Football Transfers, insiders believe that the Merseyside giants are yet to give up on their interest in the 19-year-old England international, and there is a small chance that Liverpool could hijack Madrid’s blockbuster move for Bellingham if their deal collapses.
Valued at £120m, Bellingham’s move to Madrid feels like a matter of time after Fabrizio Romano reported that the Borussia Dortmund star had agreed on a move to the Spanish capital. However, concrete news has since slowed down, which could given Liverpool hope over a potential deal.
Whilst the odds on Bellingham joining Liverpool remain low given his price tag and the Anfield’s side likely lack of UEFA Champions League football next season, Madrid fumbling the bag in their attempts to bring the midfielder to La Liga could be quite the twist in this transfer tale.
Indeed, Bellingham is arguably the best midfielder Liverpool could sign this summer, and although Madrid will remain confident in agreeing a deal to recruit the England international, whispers of a deal potentially collapsing could make for an interesting few weeks.
Liverpool should ignore Bellingham rumours unless Madrid officially pull out
Bellingham’s future still looks Madrid-bound, but with a lack of new information coming out and this latest update teasing that Liverpool could be there to strike over a potentially collapsed deal, there’s no telling where this transfer saga could end up. Yet for the Anfield side, they must remain patient.
As we know, Liverpool are close to signing Alexis Mac Allister and could already be working on adding a second midfielder to their ranks this summer. And should Madrid officially announce their plans to drop out for Bellingham, the Merseyside club should sit tight and wait to see what happens.
