Jude Bellingham at centre of massive £130m summer transfer battle with Man Utd and Chelsea among FIVE clubs interested | The Sun

CHELSEA and Manchester United are among FIVE European clubs interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham this summer, according to reports.

Bellingham, 19, joined Borussia Dortmund in a £25million transfer from Birmingham City two years ago.

He snubbed Man Utd in favour of the move to Germany, but the Red Devils have refused to give up in their pursuit of the teen.

According to The Athletic, United are in a transfer race along with four other clubs.

Premier League giants Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are also eager to sign Bellingham while Real Madrid retain a strong interest.

But, Borussia Dortmund are demanding at least £130m for the young star which would make him the most expensive English player of all-time – surpassing Jack Grealish and his £100m move to Man City last year.

Bellingham made his 100th appearance for Dortmund last week.

Since arriving at Signal Iduna Park he's scored 13 goals and assisted 18, making him one of the club's most valuable players.

His consistent performances have also seen him earn a regular spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad.

Last year Bellingham became the youngest-ever English player to appear at a major tournament when he made a substitute appearance against Croatia during Euro 2020.
