Man United will use all their might to land Jude Bellingham next summer. The Red Devils squandered a chance as they could not convince Birmingham City to sell the midfielder. And they might have to pay nearly £100m to make England international, a target for Liverpool, their marquee signing.
Jude’s rise to the top has been scintillating, as he has grown leaps and bounds since his departure from England. Borussia Dortmund provided him with the ideal environment and resources to grow at Signal Iduna Park. And the result is quite evident as he has emerged as one of the most in-form midfielders in the world.
The Englishman is destined to don the England jersey when the 2022 FIFA World Cup starts later this month. And all his suitors will be keeping a stringent eye on the target. The Red Devils brought in Casemiro and Eriksen to stabilise their midfield woes, and the English star could add some more thrust to their already improving midfield.
Man United were locked in a battle for Frenkie de Jong the entire summer and it is high time for them to shift their attention from the Barcelona midfielder.
But Man United are aware of the fact they need to build their reputation from scratch as young footballers often do not seem to be tempted a move to the club. If the Red Devils maintain the current course, their chances of getting the 19-year-old midfielder at nearly £100m would definitely increase.
