Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has £60 million release clause amidst Manchester United interest
Manchester United could possibly sign Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham for £60 million, which is the potential release clause in the midfielder’s contract, according to the Daily Mail (h/t Manchester Evening News).
It is likely that the 19-year-old will depart BVB in the summer of 2023. Several top European clubs are interested in his signature. The Red Devils, along with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid, are eyeing the England international.
His current contract at the Bundesliga outfit runs until the end of the 2024/25 season. However, the youngster could be available for a cut-price deal if the reports about his release clause are accurate/.
Bellingham joined Dortmund in the summer of 2020 from Birmingham City. Since then, he has developed into a fine player. The 19-year-old cemented his place in BVB’s starting lineup upon arriving in Germany.
However, the youngster has taken his game to the next level this season. The England international has also been handed extra responsibility with the captain’s armband on a few occasions by Edin Terzic.
Bellingham turned many heads with his displays in the Champions League in the current campaign. Against the likes of Manchester City and Sevilla in the group stages, the midfielder was brilliant.
The 19-year-old also starred for the Three Lions in Qatar. He was pivotal for Gareth Southgate’s team at the 2022 World Cup, as England made it to the quarter-finals only to lose to France.
United bolstered their midfield in the recent transfer window with the addition of Christian Eriksen and Casemiro. The two have shown their qualities during their short time in Manchester.
