Liverpool plans to abandon Jude Bellingham transfer and sign a better star midfielder
The Borussia Dortmund star has been linked with a move to the Reds for a while, but the club has concluded that the time and money required to complete his signing would be better used elsewhere.
Liverpool have turned their attentions away from Jude Bellingham due to the size and scale of the rebuild needed at Anfield this summer according to report.
Considering the fact that the 19-year-old England international is likely to cost more than £100 million, the Reds have determined that the time and money required to complete his signing would be better used elsewhere.
Bellingham is still a target for Manchester City and Real Madrid, and the Reds are fully aware that a pursuit of Bellingham could be unproductive given their current inability to compete with those teams in terms of resources.
Due to Liverpool’s disappointing season, there have been calls for a massive Anfield overhaul this summer, with several new recruits needed particularly in midfield and defence.
While captain Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara are in their 30s and Fabinho has had a difficult season, James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all have contracts that expire at the end of the current campaign.
Liverpool is rumoured to be interested in Jude Bellingham England team mate Mason Mount, and getting him from Stamford Bridge could be much easier given Chelsea’s problems with Financial Fair Play.
Chelsea and England’s Conor Gallagher is another name under consideration, as is Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes, Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch, Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo and the Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans, who will be available on a free transfer in the summer.
When the transfer market opens, Liverpool is prepared to move quickly since its owners, Fenway Sports Group, plan to provide manager Jurgen Klopp a sizable sum of money once a deal for a minority stake in the team is finalised.
