Man United in race to sign £115m “superstar” who Roy Keane loves; Sheikh Jassim’s a “huge fan”

Posted by

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United is competing to sign midfielder Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

How is Bellingham’s future progressing?
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Bellingham in recent months, and a stunning swoop for the 19-year-old is reportedly in Sheikh Jassim’s sights. Jassim is a potential new owner and is said to be a “huge fan” of the player.

Fabrizio Romano, however, asserted last month that United were not “actively working” on a transfer for Bellingham, citing the procedure of a potential takeover as justification.

The Faithful MUFC, however, has relayed information about Bellingham from Wednesday’s print edition of The Telegraph, suggesting that a move to Old Trafford may be feasible in the coming months.

The article mentioned United as a club that is vying for his services and ‘are on course to be financially reinforced by a return to the Champions League’ while mentioning how Premier League rivals Liverpool had conceded defeat in the race for the £115 million midfielder. Other teams interested in signing the England international include Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.

What drives Man United’s desire for a new midfielder?
This summer, the club is reportedly focused on adding a new midfielder and forward. The latter position needs to be strengthened because of Anthony Martial’s injury issues and the fact that Wout Wegorst is only on loan, and the club is reportedly considering selling the first of the two forwards.

The injuries to players like Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay, as well as Casemiro’s numerous Premier League game absences due to suspension, have left the Red Devils occasionally lacking in the middle of the field.

Marcel Sabitzer is also only on loan, so signing Bellingham, who is already valued at an astounding €120 million (£106 million) by Transfermarkt, could be a fantastic long-term investment.

Bellingham, a versatile midfielder who will turn 20 in June, has been dubbed a “superstar” by former United captain Roy Keane. According to WhoScored, the Englishman has even outperformed both Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro to become Dortmund’s best performer this year.

Bellingham leads Dortmund in tackles made per 90, and he also contributes with four goals and four assists in the Bundesliga, demonstrating how he could be a really smart signing both defensively and offensively under Erik ten Hag. Reporter Dr. Constantin Eckner has described Bellingham as “the perfect box-to-box player” with “no glaring weakness.”
