Chelsea handed major Jude Bellingham transfer blow as Liverpool make huge £103m decision
The next summer, Liverpool will be prepared to compete with Chelsea for the services of Jude Bellingham.
The Reds are reportedly interested, and they won’t be discouraged by the huge £103 million price tag.
Moving forward, it is obvious that the Blues need a midfielder, and Bellingham has previously been a target.
There aren’t many midfielders around that are more important than the 19-year-old given his status as an established international player for England.
It goes without saying that several clubs in Europe are interested in him, but a transfer away from dortmund this summer seems quite unlikely.
“The only future I think about is the next game for Dortmund,” the England international said last month.
“I look forward to next season, I look forward to it starting again. But yes, I will be here next season and I will be ready.”
But that will be a different story next summer. Bellingham will enter the transfer market with two years remaining on his contract unless he and the German club reach an agreement on fresh terms prior to the start of the next summer.
Dortmund would probably be more inclined or willing to sell the teen at that point.
According to reports in Germany, Borussia Dortmund won’t consider any offers that are less than €120 million (£103 million) in the coming summer.
However, if that rumored price is accurate, Chelsea is anticipated to be one of the bidders.
The Athletic has now claimed that Liverpool won’t be deterred by that price and will also be a contender by 2023.
Despite being a setback for the Blues, it was inevitable considering Bellingham’s talent.
Whoever acquires the player in what could be a major transfer battle will be getting a player with a lot of potential.
