As of now, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham isn’t interested in moving to Chelsea or Paris Saint-Germain. With a number of top European clubs lining up to present offers for the 19-year-old, speculations surrounding him are the hot topics. Despite this, Dortmund remains hopeful of tying Bellingham to a new contract until 2025.
According to Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl, his side has not received any offers for Bellingham.
“I can’t say today if and when that will be the case with Jude, and from a purely sporting point of view I would be stupid to want to give up Jude Bellingham.”
“We’ll talk to him and his parents in due course. There is currently no pressure. Jude wants to concentrate fully on football. And by the way, there are no offers at all.”
It is likely, however, that Bellingham will leave Dortmund at the end of the season. He will have plenty of suitors in the market.
Clubs interested in signing Bellingham
In December, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi confirmed PSG’s interest in signing Bellingham. Chelsea have also been linked with a move. Nasser Al-Khelaifi said:
“Everybody wants him, I’m not going to hide it. He’s at his club, and we have respect, so if we want to talk to him we’ll talk to the club first.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea are likely to sign a new midfielder over the summer after selling Jorginho on deadline day to Arsenal and potentially losing N’Golo Kante on a free transfer.
Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United have been given a boost in their bids to sign Bellingham. However, Dortmund offered him a yearly salary of £13.3m to tie him down to new terms. With Chelsea and PSG allegedly out of the race, other clubs have the opportunity to sign him.
He is still considering his options, but Real Madrid believes that they cannot compete financially with Premier League clubs.
Premier League’s charges against Man City might stop them from going for the Englishman. Also, Liverpool’s hopes of signing Bellingham might shatter if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
