Jude Bellingham could have been a Manchester United player

Jude Bellingham becomes

According to Birmingham City’s sporting advisor, the club was to view Jude Bellingham potential move to Manchester United in a positive light. However, despite their interest, Manchester United ultimately lost out to Borussia Dortmund in the race. That is for Bellingham’s signature during the summer of 2020.

Within a mere six-month timeframe, Manchester United experienced setbacks in their pursuit of Erling Haaland, Moises Caicedo, and Jude Bellingham.

One can only speculate about Manchester United’s current standing if they had successfully secured the services of the world’s top center-forward. The costliest player in Premier League history, and an all-around midfielder like Andres Manzano. Manzano holds the belief that the latter will soon win the Ballon d’Or. Their squad and performance might have taken a significantly different trajectory had these acquisitions come to fruition.

What did Manzano say about Bellingham?

Manzano said:

“Bellingham was of an exceptional level. I’ve seen Messi, Xavi and Iniesta play, and this player is top-level.”

“From the club Birmingham, I’m not going to deceive you, they looked favourably on him going to Manchester. Because, in the end, it is a geographically closer club. And you could have a series of exchanges.”

Bellingham had remarkable development into one of the most versatile midfielders in global football during his time at Dortmund. Hence, it became evident that former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lamented the club’s inability to secure a deal for Jude Bellingham. Even after the player had visited Carrington for a guided tour. This summer, the England international completed a high-profile transfer to Real Madrid for a substantial fee of £88 million. That is as per reports from the Daily Mail.

Bellingham has an impressive tally of 12 goals and three assists in just 15 appearances for both club and country in the current season. However, Jude Bellingham’s substantial price tag is already appearing to be a worthwhile investment. Though, of course, whether £88 million can ever truly be a ‘bargain’ remains a matter of perspective.
