Man City: Journalist drops significant Jude Bellingham update

Man City: Journalist drops significant Jude Bellingham update -Manchester City News

Manchester City are still in with a shot at signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, despite reports claiming he’s chosen to join Real Madrid, according to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Contrasting updates

The 19-year-old has three years remaining on his contract with the German giants, though it’s been revealed that he could be set to leave for £83m next summer.

Several Premier League clubs alongside the Sky Blues, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, have all been heavily linked with the teenager, though the same outlet state that he is set to snub these sides for a move to La Liga.

The Latest: City still targeting Bellingham

Taking to Twitter, Jacobs denied such claims and insisted that City remain in the race to sign Bellingham, with his former teammate already trying to convince him to put pen to paper. He wrote:

“Am told Bellingham has not ‘picked’ Real just yet. He’s keeping his options open. Definitely a move that’s of appeal, but Liverpool and Manchester City still very much involved in an open race. Erling Haaland has already told him to join.”

The Verdict: Gundogan replacement

Ilkay Gundogan will be turning 32 next month, and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Bellingham would be a suitable long-term replacement for the City captain.

The England international currently averages three dribbles, 2.6 shots and 2.9 tackles per Bundesliga game (WhoScored), showing his ability to affect the game at both ends of the pitch.

Bellingham’s existing connection to Haaland should give City a significant advantage in the race for his signature, so this will definitely be one to watch in the weeks ahead.
