Chelsea will reportedly be going against multiple English Premier Clubs to sign Jude Bellingham. The reports suggest that the clubs will attempt to acquire the player in the upcoming summer.
Chelsea to Rival Man. United and Liverpool
Jude Bellingham, a fresh talent from England currently playing as a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund is in high demand among the English clubs.
His strong play and skills have compelled multiple English football clubs to closely monitor the progress and skills of the 19-year-old player.
As of now, Chelsea is not the only club going after Jude Bellingham. Other English clubs such as Manchester United as well as Liverpool are also eager to sign the player into their team.
The rumors have it that all three clubs will be making an attempt to offer a bidding price for the English player next summer.
Jude Bellingham’s Career
Jude Bellingham has emerged as one of the most promising and hottest prospects in the European football segment.
Bellingham started his youth career at Birmingham City’s youth camp before moving to the senior Birmingham City team in 2019.
Jude Bellingham played at Birmingham City from 2019 to 2020 making 41 appearances for the club. The midfielder even scored 4 goals for the club.
The English player then moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2020 and he has been playing there since then. So far, the 19-year-old player has played 67 matches for the club and he has scored 4 goals for the team.
Jude Bellingham moved from Birmingham City to Borussia Dortmund at a transfer fee worth £20 million.
Chelsea Wants the 19-Year-Old Prospect
In the recent transfer window, Chelsea has spent a humongous amount of money to build a strong squad. The club reportedly spent £255.3 million to build a squad with strong defense and attack.
However, the club is still in need of talent and strong prospects for mid-fielding. Therefore, it is not a surprise that Chelsea is eager to get their hands on the player. They may be ready to pay a huge transfer fee to sign him as well.
Jude Bellingham didn’t Happen Because Of Erling Haaland
There were high chances of Jude Bellingham moving to an English club in the recent transfer window. However, Borussia Dortmund sold Erling Haaland to Manchester City, which created a huge void in their attacking formation.
Therefore, the German club could not afford to send another highly talented player from their team to the English side.
Right after Haaland’s transfer to Manchester City, the German club made it clear what they had in mind about Jude Bellingham.
The club announced that they will not be selling Jude Bellingham to any club for the rest of the transfer window. However, they may be open to receiving bidding offers for the player in the January window.
