Sky Sports reporter claims Man Utd are ‘exploring’ club-record transfer that would stun world football

Posted by

According to a Sky Sports journalist, Manchester United is debating whether to make a club-record transfer for Jude Bellingham.

The transfer sum needed to wrest the player away from Borussia Dortmund was the reason Liverpool had given up on their pursuit of the England international, it was revealed last week.

Bellingham is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after players in football, having recently drawn interest from Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid.

And while City and Real are considered the favorites to sign the 19-year-old, it is also believed that United is looking into a deal.

Bellingham declined the Old Trafford club when he was 16 years old in 2020, despite United having thrown a lavish welcome for the kid when he toured the Carrington practice facility.

However, it seems like United might get another chance.

Bellingham is going to Man Utd?

According to Sky Sports’ Melissa Reddy, United is “exploring” a deal to get Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

When Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Liverpool have made sales pitches to you as Manchester United investigates whether there is any room to maneuver into a close pursuit, the journalist said: “There is no need to rush through a decision.

Bellingham’s top aim is to keep growing at his new location and, in his own words, “to win lot more, to keep pushing the limits of my own potential and talent.

“Real placed their offer to the midfielder in the location where champions are made, helping him become the best player in the world.

They openly stated that Kylian Mbappe made the wrong decision by remaining at Paris Saint-Germain, telling him that he might become a Ballon d’Or winner and Champions League royalty.

Bellingham might fetch as much as £130 million from Dortmund, exceeding the club record of £89.3 million that United paid for Paul Pogba in 2016.

Furthermore, Reddy stated that Erik ten Hag’s side is “unlikely to get involved in a bidding war” despite the fact that they may be interested.
