Jude Bellingham is one of the most coveted players in the world right now. The Englishman has been linked with a number of top European sides including Liverpool, Manchester United, and Real Madrid. His stand-out performances in the World Cup have just heightened the furore around his future.
A fee north of £100,000,000 or more has been the reported figure that it would take to tempt Borussia Dortmund to part with their 19-year-old star. However, Liverpool may feel they have an ace up their sleeve with Jurgen Klopp’s strong bond with the German side.
Dortmund CEO, Watzke on Klopp: “When Klopp left it hurt for weeks. Sometimes when I am on training camps, I go to my room late and sit on my terrace and think of the times when I used to hear Klopp laugh and everything was fine.”

Cramer was asked about his relationship with Klopp: “We both care for Dortmund, we have a high sympathy for sure. We are still in a good relationship with Jurgen, and many others at Liverpool, for me it is my preferred club in the EPL as well. But don’t expect that we will make gifts to Liverpool.”
Cramer’s job is to sell Bellingham for as much as he can, Liverpool fans will be hoping Jurgen Klopp can leverage his relationship with Dortmund in favour of Bellingham joining Liverpool.
