Liverpool transfer: £103m Red’s target Jude Bellingham to refuse Dortmund contract after request from interested club amid strong Liverpool links
Bundesliga sensation Jude Bellingham is reportedly set to reject a new contract with Borussia Dortmund at the request of Real Madrid.
This information is provided by Marca (through the Express), and Liverpool has been frequently mentioned in connection with the player in recent years.
The Reds’ transfer ambitions would suffer significantly if the Englishman chose to go with the Champions League champions instead of one of his many other admirers.
At this point in the season, it is crucial that supporters treat the story from the Spanish media with caution.
While Carlo Ancelotti’s team will undoubtedly be a tempting choice for Bellingham come the summer window, we shouldn’t jump to the conclusion that Jurgen Klopp’s vision for Liverpool would be more alluring.
With up to three midfielders having their contracts expire in the summer of 2019 and players like Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson nearing their 30th birthdays, the former Birmingham City prospect may have an easier time breaking into the starting lineup than in the Spanish capital.
