Complete fairy tale. This kid is going to cost a helluva lot more than Dec, and I can’t see Dortmund letting him go next summer. Major talent.

Seems a bit odd, very different players, Lampard looking for a leader and can definitely see Bellingham being a leader someday but moves a lot more than rice, who’s a sitter. Unless that means they play on carrying on with Jorginho in that role maybe. https://t.co/2vYgCOIoR4

I don’t think he’ll be cheap either if he starts games regularly for Dortmund. Especially since the guy was balling pro football whilst I was revising for my gcses. Plus he’s already played for England and has massive potential
