Erling Haaland’s ‘private chat’ with Jude Bellingham revealed amid strong Liverpool transfer talks
The battle over the future of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham has already begun with Man city superstar and Ex Borussia Dortmund man Erling Haaland hoping to sway the midfield ace into joining him at Man City.
Jude Bellingham reportedly received a request from his old teammate Erling Haaland to join him at Manchester City.
After spending two and a half incredible years in Germany, the Norwegian goal-scoring wonder signed a five-year contract with the Premier League winners.
Haaland collaborated with Bellingham for two of those seasons after Bellingham transferred from Birmingham City to the Bundesliga team in the summer of 2020.
After a breakthrough season with the Blues, Bellingham became one of Europe’s most sought-after prospects.
Numerous prestigious teams pursued the 19-year-old, but Dortmund ultimately prevailed; a similar transfer saga hunt is likely to occur next year.
According to Mirror Football, Real Madrid is growing more optimistic in their ability to put together a deal to acquire Bellingham in 2023.
Bellingham has previously been linked to Liverpool on a number of occasions, in addition to Chelsea and Manchester United, who are also reportedly interested in the England international.
Several elite clubs are reportedly interested in the midfielder, who could be made available in an £83 million deal next summer.
Although Bellingham’s future is far from certain, Dortmund is still holding out hope that they can extend his contract. Real Madrid may be leading the race.
Although Dortmund would respect the preferences of the England star, he is currently under contract with the German club till 2025, thus there is no pressing need for them to sell.
According to CBS Sports, Liverpool and City have worked more to secure a deal to capture the young player than either United or Chelsea, whose interest is currently at a more nascent stage.
Haaland is alleged to have already instructed the midfielder to team up with him at the Etihad Stadium in English football.
The two worked together at Dortmund for two seasons, so the idea of them working together once more at City is tantalizing.
Off the field, they have remained good friends and have kept in touch ever since the Norwegian.
In fact, during their Champions League group stage match in Manchester earlier this month, the two players hugged tightly.
Bellingham was heard to say ‘F*** sake mate,’ in friendly exasperation after the striker won the game late on for City.
Bellingham once again shone for Dortmund in that match, which only served to fuel rumours about his future. The race is already on to get his autograph.
