Jude Bellingham might be available for £83million, if paid upfront

United, City, Liverpool & Chelsea all interested in the young English midfielder

Since the appointment of Erik ten Hag, a mixture of shrewd purchases and players upping their game have meant that Manchester United’s midfield looks much stronger as compared to last season.

Fans were tired of seeing the pair of Fred and Scott McTominay commit the same mistakes week in and week out and were begging the club to recruit top-class operators.

And the Dutchman decided to bring in Christian Eriksen on a free and spent big bucks to land Casemiro from Real Madrid.

Midfield looks better

The Dane has been a revelation while the Brazilian has indirectly been responsible for McTominay playing some of his best football.

But there are still gaps as the former Ajax boss prefers to use a deep-lying playmaker instead of a destroyer and Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong was his preferred choice in the summer.

But a mixture of deferred wages and the player refusing to leave meant United had to forego their protracted chase.

However, rumours have once again surfaced, linking the Netherlands international with a move to Old Trafford next summer.

Another player whose name has been frequently linked with United is Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. Before his move to Germany, he was close to signing for the Red Devils.

Reports have stated that Dortmund would only agree to part ways with the England international for a fee of £130million. But The Sun have now claimed that a deal can be struck for £50million less if a certain condition is met.

Utd in for Jude

“Jude Bellingham could leave Borussia Dortmund for just £83million next summer – if the entire fee is paid up front,” the report mentions.

The report also mentions that United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea all will be vying for his signature but City are best placed to complete the deal due to their trophy-winning ability as well as the bond shared between Bellingham and Erling Haaland.

Pep Guardiola is looking at the 19-year-old as the eventual successor for Kevin de Bruyne.

It will be a tough ask for United to beat City to his signature but first and foremost, they have to qualify for the Champions League next season to stand any chance.
