Borussia Dortmund will ask for record fee to sell Bellingham

Borussia Dortmund are bracing themselves for offers at the end of the season but according to recent reports, the German side will not be pushovers.

The Bundesliga side are well-known for turning young players into superb talents and getting the best price possible when selling those players.

This has been proven by their deals for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ousmane Dembele, Jason Sancho, and most recently Erling Haaland. 

Jude Bellingham has become the next player to be coveted by all of Europe’s elite and it is certain Dortmund will require a king’s ransom to let him leave Germany. 

According to a recent report from 90min, Dortmund will hope to deter prospective bidders by slapping a monstrous price tag on the England international. 

It is believed they will only be willing to sanction a sale for a club record fee, which currently stands at €144m, the price Barcelona paid to sign Ousmane Dembele in July 2017. 

At that price point, the number of teams able to afford his services reduces greatly. A handful of clubs, including Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid have been strongly linked. 

A recent report by The Athletic, revealed Manchester City and Real Madrid are front runners with Liverpool unlikely to pay astronomical figures for Bellingham.
