Man City are ‘expected to up their bid’ for the signing of Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham amid mounting pressure from Real Madrid.
The Lowdown: Bellingham shines…
Enjoying a phenomenal World Cup campaign with England, Bellingham’s stellar reputation has only grown over this past month as the 19-year-old continues to attract serious interest.
The former Birmingham City midfielder stood out as one of Gareth Southgate’s top performers in Qatar with only Arsenal star Bukayo Saka managing a higher match rating per 90 than him (WhoScored).
The Latest: Man City set to up Bellingham bid…
As per a recent report, City could actually be facing stiff competition to sign the teenage talent as Real Madrid now believe they’re favourites to sign him.
However, The Sun also claim this hasn’t deterred Guardiola and co, who are confident that they’re very much still in the race for his signature.
As such, the Sky Blues, and sporting director Txiki Begiristain by extension, are ‘expected to up their bid’ for Bellingham as competition intensifies.
The Verdict: Fight tooth and nail…
As a result of his phenomenal form for both club and country, the Bundesliga rising star has received mountains of praise from members of the media.
