The 20-year-old has been one of Dortmund’s best players this season scoring 10 goals and providing 6 assists. 

Several clubs are believed to be very interested in acquiring his services in the summer but only a handful of Europe’s elite clubs can actually afford to sign him. 

Manchester United want Bellingham

According to the Telegraph, Manchester United have joined the race to sign Bellingham in the summer.

The Res Devils have a gaping hole in midfield next to Casemiro and would love to fill it with a player of Bellingham’s talents.

Erik ten Hag is said to be an admirer of the England international and will push the hierarchy to make a push for his services. 

However, United will have to battle with Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Liverpool who are all heavily linked to Bellingham. 

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund have reportedly set a meeting for the end of March to discuss Bellingham’s future.
