There is little to no doubt that Jude Bellingham is one of the most incredible young talents on the planet. The biggest clubs in Europe are fighting for the teenager and Dortmund know they have an absolute goldmine in him, so they won’t let him leave so easily. Helpbet.com brings you the updated Jude Bellingham transfer odds and all rumours. Who will be the team that will manage to land him next summer, as he turns just 20?
After breaking into Birmingham City’s first team at the tender age of 16, Bellingham moved to Dortmund for a £25 million initial fee, making him the most expensive 17-year-old footballer in history. This might seem like peanuts when Borussia decide to sell him, most certainly at a nine-digit price.
He is not even 20, but he has already registered 161 club appearances, scoring 24 as a central midfielder. He has also played 22 times for England and if he appears in all four Three Lions games until his birthday, in July, he will join Wayne Rooney as the most-capped teenager in the national team’s history. All these are clear indications of just how good he is and why a potential Jude Bellingham transfer is so widely discussed all around Europe.
Many expected high-spending Chelsea to have moved to sign Bellingham this past transfer window. Instead, the Blues opted to go for 22-year-old Enzo Fernandez, who actually beat Bellingham in the vote for the best young player of the World Cup last December. Now it feels like the main two suitors to dress the youngster in their colours are Liverpool and Real Madrid.
The world’s largest transfer database, Transfermarkt, believes that in the summer there will be interest from other major European clubs, with the main two outsiders being the Manchester teams, City and United.
City seem like the team where Bellingham would be the best fit, but with all the uncertainty surrounding the club’s future, as we are amidst an economic scandal investigation, Liverpool and Real Madrid are the top candidates to land him. It is also rumoured that the player himself will express his desire to leave and put pressure on the club before the season even ends.
Right now both Real Madrid and Liverpool struggle in their respective leagues, but there is no doubt that they both have the assets, funds, and status to turn things around.
Real Madrid are the slight favourites to win the Bellingham transfer race by the 3rd of September (according to the best bonus betting sites), right ahead of Liverpool. The other English Big-6 clubs (City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Spurs) follow, as is Newcastle, who will soon be regarded as a member of a newly formed Big-7.
