Man United remain interested in Jude Bellingham

Man United are still interested in bringing in Jude Bellingham.

There can be no doubt that Jude Bellingham is the big ticket item going into the summer transfer window.

The Englishman has been absolutely sensational for club and country over the last couple of seasons, improving on an almost weekly basis, turning into arguably the most complete midfielder within the sport.

It’s well documented that United tried to bring Bellingham in when he left Birmingham City, though, in the end, he’d choose Borussia Dortmund.

There became an acceptance at United that it would be tough to land Bellingham, particularly without European football on the table. However, the Reds are not giving up.

That’s according to ESPN, who state that United remain interested in signing the 19-year-old, though other clubs, like Manchester City and Real Madrid, remain more likely destinations.

When you’re a club as huge as United, you’re always going to be dining at the top table. However, the lack of trophies over the last few years means we’re no longer the top dogs.

Bellingham isn’t going to settle for those second and third level clubs right now. Purely because he doesn’t have to. Unless United’s bid is the only one that’s accepted, I’m not sure they have any genuine chance at making this happen.

A lot also depends on ownership. Let’s say United are bought by Qatar and they have a massive budget, they could try and tempt the midfielder with a huge weekly wage.

I guess plenty can happen between now and the end of the season. If United can win the FA Cup and Europa League, the temptation to help United win first Premier League title may be too tough to turn down for Bellingham…
