Jude Bellingham is currently one of the most talented English Football players. The 18-year-old has established himself as one of the finest young players in European football since completing a move from boyhood side Birmingham City to Dortmund in 2020.
Bellingham joined Birmingham City as an under-8, became the club’s youngest ever first-team player when he made his senior debut in August 2019, at the age of 16 years, 38 days, and played regularly during the 2019–20 season. After joining Borussia Dortmund in July 2020, in his first competitive match became their youngest ever goalscorer.
Since moving to Germany and starting to shine in the games at a young age, football fans have anticipated his move back to England to play in the English Premier League. Fans know that he will return to England one day, and he is a player that is made to play in the Premier League.
For Borussia Dortmund, he has been vital under Marco Rose and has racked up six goals and ten assists in all competitions.
But his move away from Germany had heated up when he openly showed his frustration towards the team when they were knocked out of the UEFA Europa League after the loss against Rangers FC.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are the top clubs that were keeping an eye on him, and they know that it’s a golden opportunity to sign him in the upcoming transfer window.
But Bellingham opened up last day, and regarding the transfer news, he had his say. It was a disappointing statement for the English clubs. According to reports in Germany, Jude Bellingham has assured Borussia Dortmund that he wants to remain at the club next season.
The report suggests he is happy in the Bundesliga and wants to continue his development under Marco Rose. Bellingham certainly wouldn’t be cheap as his current contract expires in 2025, and rumours last year suggested he is valued at close to 90m pounds.
Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl also addressed the player’s future back in October, as he said: “He is a Borussia Dortmund player and remains a Borussia Dortmund player. There’s a lot of interest around Jude Bellingham, not only Liverpool. But there is no bottom line and no exit clause. He is loved, he enjoys that. There are no signs he could leave Dortmund soon.”
Bellingham had marked his legacy with Birmingham City at a young age. In appreciation of what Bellingham achieved in such a short time with the first team, the club announced that they would retire his number 22 shirt “to remember one of our own and to inspire others.”
