Manchester United unaware of summer transfer funds amidst appreciation for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham
Manchester United ‘appreciate’ Jude Bellingham, who currently plays for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter.
At the moment, Premier League rivals Manchester City and Liverpool and European giants Real Madrid are the frontrunners in the race to acquire the 19-year-old’s services.
But the midfielder is yet to make a decision regarding his future. The England international’s father, Mark, is taking care of the negotiations.
The Red Devils are currently in an uncertain situation. For now, the Old Trafford side’s summer transfer budget is not clear due to the club being up for sale.
Bellingham made his way to Germany in the summer of 2020 from Birmingham City. The 19-year-old has thrived at BVB and has developed into one of the best players at the Signal Iduna Park side.
In the current campaign, the youngster has grown from strength to strength. Edin Terzic has not shied away from handing the England international the captain’s armband on a number of occasions.
The midfielder also shone in Qatar for Gareth Southgate’s team. He started in every game for the Three Lions in the 2022 World Cup. But they were unable to get past France in the quarter-finals.
Casemiro and Christian Eriksen have proven to be astute additions to United’s engine room. The Brazilian and Danish national have impressed many with their performances. Erik ten Hag has especially gotten the best out of the Red Devils, with the former Real Madrid star in the number six position.

Bellingham is a generational talent. Any team that will get their hands on him will have a quality midfielder at their disposal. The Old Trafford side could evidently do with someone like the 19-year-old. However, it remains to be seen whether the Glazers or someone else will release enough funds next summer.
