Jude Bellingham ‘to join Dortmund in summer after rejecting Man Utd, Chelsea and Bayern Munich transfers’ – The Sun

JUDE BELLINGHAM will snub interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich to sign for Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.

The Birmingham City wonderkid has drawn attention from Europe's elite clubs with his performances in the Championship during a breakthrough season at St. Andrew's.

So much so, that Man United arranged for him and his parents to be given a private tour of their Carrington training base.

The Red Devils have become "obsessed" with landing the 16-year-old prodigy in recent weeks.

But according to Bild, Bellingham has decided to snub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and join Borussia Dortmund instead.

This would mirror the path taken by fellow prodigious English teen Jadon Sancho – who left Manchester City for Signal Iduna Park back in 2017.

And under the careful tutelage of Lucien Favre in Germany, Sancho has become one of the most sought-after players in the world – with the Red Devils very keen on signing him in the summer.

It is ironic then, that United could lose out on Bellingham, with Dortmund making him a direct replacement for a player that could soon be Old Trafford bound in Sancho.

Birmingham are likely to demand around £30million for their prised asset.

And United were thought to be willing to splash out £20million upfront, with a further £10million in add-ons.

But now it looks like it will be Dortmund that pip them to the England youth international's signature.

Since making his Blues debut back in August, Bellingham has established himself as a regular in the club's first-team.

In his 35 appearances this season, which have included four goals and three assists – Bellingham has impressed with his mental attributes as well as physical – already reading the game better than many established professionals.
