The Athletic reported today that the Premier League is the most likely destination for Jude Bellingham with Liverpool and Manchester City ‘pushing hard’.
Mario Cortegana, writing for the outlet, reports that Real Madrid believes Bellingham is likely to join a Premier League side.
According to Cortegana, Real Madrid’s chief scout, Juni Calafat, has been working on a possible deal ‘for months’. He has been reportedly dealing with Jude Bellingham’s family.
The report states that Real Madrid are unlikely to be able to compete with the Premier League sides’ financial muscle. Considering Real Madrid reportedly made a €200M offer for Kylian Mbappe in 2021 it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Real Madrid continue to pursue Bellingham.
Finally, the report also states that Dortmund also believes that Bellingham will join a Premier League side.
Recently, Borussia Dortmund’s Carsten Cramer spoke to @VietnamNewsVNS on Jude Bellingham potentially joining Liverpool.
