Man United continue to be linked with a move to sign Jude Bellingham, with the Red Devils having ‘very good chances’ to sign the Englishman.

There’s no doubt that Manchester United’s 2022 summer transfer window was a wholly positive one. Although it took right until the final day, Erik ten Hag was delivered some players he genuinely wanted to work with.

Antony looks sharp, Tyrell Malacia impressive and Lisandro Martinez a rock at the back. We’ll also see more from Casemiro in the not-too-distant future, too.

The job at United is so large that one transfer window isn’t enough to complete the job. No doubt behind the scenes, the hard work ahead of both January and next summer is being done.

Well one journalist, Florian Plettenburg, believes United are in with a shot at acquiring Jude Bellingham.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been linked with the 20-time Premier League champions previously, though in the end, the then-teenager made the move to Borussia Dortmund.

Now, Plettenberg believes United have a ‘very good\ chance to sign the emerging star, with the journo ‘totally convinced’ the player will move clubs in 2023. The problem? Liverpool are also keen.

Check out what Florian Plettenburg had to say on a potential Man United move for Jude Bellingham:

“I’m totally convinced he will leave Dortmund in 2023. Maybe to Liverpool, maybe to Manchester United. I think these are two teams who can have very good chances to get him.” That’s according to @Plettigoal, with the video coming via @FootballDaily.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have absolutely stumbled to start the season, though they’re much further along in the project than we are. Whether that gives them an edge remains to be seen.

Does Liverpool even have the budget to splash the cash on Bellingham? Their owners, FSG, aren’t keen on spending big unless they can recoup that money elsewhere.

With Ten Hag at the helm and our recent results, I’d feel far more positive about our chances at landing Bellingham than I did, say, a few weeks ago.

It’ll probably require a little help from the United lads who play for England. Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho should absolutely be in his ear during the winter World Cup, trying to persuade Bellingham to choose United red over Liverpool red.
