If he departs Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Dortmund forward Jude Bellingham allegedly prefers to join Liverpool over Real Madrid
Despite interest from teams like Real Madrid and Manchester City, Sport Bild reports that Jude Bellingham wants to leave Borussia Dortmund for Liverpool.
The England national team member has been outstanding this year. In addition, his spectacular play at the 2022 FIFA World Cup has shown why the best teams in Europe are vying for his services.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund can come to terms on a transfer price for Bellingham. The Reds will have to pay a club-record sum of money to get the midfielder, who is valued at an estimated €100–150 million.
If Liverpool can get Bellingham after the season, it would be a huge coup for Jurgen Klopp, who has a lot of room to enhance his midfield options. The Reds may lose Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the season. Even Sofyan Amrabat has been mentioned in connection with a possible transfer there.
Real Madrid, who are searching for long-term replacements for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, have also been connected to Bellingham. The 19-year-old is a promising prospect for Los Blancos’ future. If the player wants to transfer to Liverpool, it will be a big setback for the club to sign him.
Real Madrid has more money and a more driven team. Whether the Spanish powerhouses can persuade Bellingham to forego a transfer to the Premier League in favour of Spain remains to be seen. The latest sources also indicated that Liverpool is ahead of Real Madrid.
It will be exciting to watch what the 19-year-old, who is destined to become a world-class talent, chooses to do with his life. Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp are both top-tier coaches that might take his career to the next level and help him reach his fullest potential.
