What Dortmund’s sporting director said after bombshell Jude Bellingham transfer news

Posted by

It seems that Borussia Dortmund won’t comment on reports of Jude Bellingham’s allegedly impending Real Madrid transfer amid their ongoing fight for the Bundesliga title.

Fabrizio Romano relayed sporting director Sebastian Kehl’s comments on Twitter, with the decision-maker refusing to address the allegations in question.

It’s worth noting that, according to Football Transfers journalist Jacque Talbot, there has yet to be contact between the German outfit and Los Blancos over the England international, which perhaps suggests the transfer isn’t quite done and dusted in principle.

Either way, from a Liverpool perspective, with firm in the knowledge that our recruitment team won’t be considering the 19-year-old as a potential transfer this summer in light of the associated cost.

With there being a need to secure multiple new additions in the middle of the park – especially given it now seems all three of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita will be departing on frees when their contracts expire in the summer – the club has to stretch the available transfer kitty as far as it will allow.

That doesn’t necessarily mean the death knell for our future under Jurgen Klopp given the silverware that has been secured with previously understated talents.
