“I love Liverpool but..” Watch Transfer Target makes honest Liverpool admission as Borussia Dortmund makes Decision that can compromise £103m Liverpool move
According to reports, Jude Bellingham will serve as Borussia Dortmund’s third-choice captain for the upcoming campaign, which may affect Liverpool’s hopes of signing the England international.
Kicker reports that Edin Terzic, the head coach, has made the surprising option to appoint the 19-year-old midfielder Dortmund’s third-choice captain, with Marco Reus keeping the armband for the forthcoming season and Mats Hummels poised to serve as his German counterpart’s deputy.
Bellingham’s selection as Dortmund’s third-choice captain is unexpected, to say the least, given the midfielder is one of the team’s younger players and is allegedly a target for Liverpool, who could seek to capture the former Birmingham City hero next summer in a £100m deal.
The fact that the midfielder has been given a leadership position may indicate that Bellingham will either remain in Germany with Dortmund or that the club will once more raise the price for their star talent, which might jeopardize Liverpool’s hopes to recruit Bellingham next year.
Bellingham has been a fixture for Dortmund since joining the team in 2020.
The dynamic English talent is now a fixture for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad and is expected to go down in history as one of the best midfielders in the country.
For Liverpool, the teenager has been hotly linked with a move to Anfield for months.
Even though a move back to England is quite possible for Bellingham in 2019, Dortmund’s decision to appoint him the club’s captain is shocking, to say the least, and it may work to the Bundesliga giants’ advantage as it may force Liverpool to pay more for the midfield sensation.
Bellingham’s selection as captain for the upcoming season is a testament to how outstanding this teenager is; many believe the 19-year-old will go on to become an era-defining player for England.
However, Liverpool’s pursuit of the midfielder has now become much more challenging.
Because Bellingham plays such a significant part at Dortmund, they continue to be in a situation where they don’t need to sell.
