Manchester City ‘join Liverpool in the race for £85m-rated Jude Bellingham’

Jude Bellingham is reportedly attracting attention from Manchester City and Liverpool – but Borussia Dortmund seem unlikely to let the 18-year-old go for less than €100million (£85m).

The rangy midfielder has been superb for the Bundesliga giants since joining them last summer from boyhood club Birmingham and turned in another impressive display on Saturday as Marco Rose’s men beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-3.

Now after reports carried by Sportsmail that the Reds were interested in the England international, the Daily Star have claimed in a story run by Sport Bild that the Premier League champions are also taking a keen interest in Bellingham.

While City are also said to be closely monitoring Declan Rice, Bellingham has also apparently been identified as a potential replacement for 36-year-old Fernandinho, who is on a one-year contract and is unlikely to sign a new one due to his age.

Bellingham came up against City aged 17 in the Champions League last season at the quarter-final stage and shone, seeing a goal harshly chalked off in the first leg and scoring the opener at the Westfalenstadion as Pep Guardiola’s side won 4-2 on aggregate.

Speaking about Bellingham’s performances, Guardiola said: ‘I can’t believe he’s only 17. Maybe he’s a liar.

‘He’s so good, a fantastic player. I saw him shouting to the centre backs that he wanted the ball. The way he asked for the ball, at that age it’s unbelievable.’

However, Dortmund are under no pressure to sell, having raked in £73m from the deal taking Jadon Sancho to Manchester City and with Bellingham’s current contract not expiring until 2025.
