Bellingham to refuse Dortmund contract after request from interested club amid Liverpool links – report

Posted by

Jude Bellingham is reportedly set to reject a new contract with Borussia Dortmund at the request of Real Madrid.

This comes courtesy of Marca (via the Express) with Liverpool having been heavily linked with the midfielder in recent years.

A decision to opt for the Champions League holders out of the Englishman’s many potential suitors would represent a significant dent in the Reds’ transfer plans.

It’s important that fans take the report from the Spanish outlet with a pinch of salt at this stage of the season.

Whilst Carlo Ancelotti’s side will certainly be an attractive option for Bellingham come the summer window, we shouldn’t be quick to rule out the prospect of Liverpool’s project under Jurgen Klopp proving the more enticing of the two.

With potentially as many as three midfielders’ contracts expiring next summer and the likes of Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara on the wrong side of 30, there’s arguably a clearer path to the first-XI for the former Birmingham City prospect than in the Spanish capital.

  1. It’s obvious to anyone with any common sense and not some English hype that goes with Kane and Bellington hysteria that Bellington will sign for Real Madrid if it comes down to choosing between Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

    There is just no evidence or logic with Bellingham choosing Liverpool because he’ll think to himself do I want to play football with the likes of Henderson, Milner, Ox, Keita at Liverpool or with Modrić, Tchouaméni, Vini Jr & Benzema, etc at Real Madrid? Liverpool doesn’t have one football superstar, but Real have so many.

    There are also no issues with buying any players or letting the team run down with overaged, injury prone and very bad players. It’s just ridiculous to think that Bellingham would ever consider playing for Liverpool and this team.

  2. Yeah Thiago will be well and truly busted by next year.. Fabhino could be on the slide too…he’s getting close to 30.
    Henderson speaks for himself. The rest are pish.

    Te problem is there would be no money to buy other quality even if FSG could scrimp the pennies together for Bellingham in a 20 year amortisation deal.

    FSG haven’t put the money into the midfield at the right times and they’re relying on cheap youth talent coming through… its a second rate pipe dream. FSG will be doing a Tescos in the summer…. that is buy one get one free

    The big boys like Madrid and City just go out and buy quality that’s why Bellingham would be wiser to go to one of those clubs. Madrid are already well stocked.

    Klopps name and hoping for the best is not going to get it over the line….pure fantasy
