Chelsea makes moves to try and bring in exciting £30 million attacker Bellingham
Manchester United could be about to suffer a huge blow in their bid to sign Birmingham wonderkid Jude Bellingham, after Chelsea reportedly joined the race to sign him.
There has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that United are desperate to sign up the wonderkid over the next few days and add him to their squad after being impressed by his performances for City.
Reports on the Daily Express have even claimed the Red Devils have already put in an offer of £30m for the youngster, believing that would be enough to get a transfer deal done by January the 31st.
But reports on the Daily Express now claim, the Birmingham star and his family prefer a move elsewhere other than Old Trafford, especially after they received offers from the likes the club.
It is no secret that we are building for the future and have been eyeing up a number of possible wonderkids to come in and try to make an impact on the side.
Transfer expert Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window podcast: “Clubs I’m told who have made offers now include Aston Villa, Leicester City, Chelsea, Everton and one foreign club.
“I know Borussia Dortmund are very interested in the player, Arsenal also extremely interested in the player.
“What I have is that Bellingham and his father are yet to be convinced that Manchester United is the right place to go but Manchester United are continuing to work on that and hope to be able to persuade the player that this is the right move for him, to commit himself to moving to Manchester United in 18 months time and that Manchester United’s bid remain the largest bid financially.”
