Chelsea target ‘to use Haaland transfer strategy’ – Boehly told
Chelsea target Jude Bellingham could use a similar approach former Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland took before joining Manchester City to decide his future
Bellingham is a player that is in the headlines for all the right reasons – as his talent on the pitch has attracted some of the biggest clubs in the game
Nobody really knows where he will end up – but many are expecting the likes of Chelsea – Liverpool – Man City – Real Madrid and even Arsenal to try and secure his signature in the coming windows.
But amid all the speculation – CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has told Football Transfers that Bellingham could use a similar approach former Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland took before joining Manchester City to decide his future next summer.
Jacobs said: “I think [Jude] Bellingham, from what I gather, will do exactly what [Erling] Haaland did [while deciding his choice of club before joining Manchester City].
“He’ll [Bellingham] score who he joins dispassionately, which is really key. So, when Haaland joined Manchester City, of course he looked at the sentiment and the fact that his father played for the football club.
“But he also created a bunch of columns, ranging from manager to teammates to training facilities to where the team was to pay packet to City and so on. And some of them were objective categories and some of them were subjective categories.
“He scored them and he had a gut instinct from what I understand, that Manchester City were his favourite club, but the data and all these columns from a more dispassionate, neutral sense added up.
He scored all the suitors and Manchester City were top of the list, and I think Bellingham will do the same and that’s going to be very important.”
