Chelsea closely monitoring €70m-rated Bundesliga star

The London giants are reportedly ready to challenge their PL rivals in the race to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. England international is just another potentially world-class gem who has made a name for himself at Signal Iduna Park.

Birmingham City deserve their fair share of the credit, but Bellingham has reached another level entirely at the Westfalenstadion. Man United splashed out £73m to sign Jadon Sancho. It really could be a case of doubling it for Jude.

The 18-year-old midfielder looks certain to be a future star of the England national team. As was the case with Jadon Sancho, you’d expect him to return to compete in the PL once he has developed into a suitably accomplished player.

The English midfielder would have no shortage of offers, as you probably could have guessed. There are interest from both Liverpool and Man United, with Chelsea, now thought to also be serious challengers for the youngster.

From the perspective of the player himself, time is on his side and he should not rush away from the equilibrium at Borussia Dortmund. It’s the ideal place for him to develop into the footballer that he is destined to be. His time will come to seal a big-money move to the club of his choosing, he need not rush.
