Jude Bellingham is nowadays very popular in European football as he is one of the brightest footballers considering his young age. The English youngster is just 17 years old and considering his age this is no mystery he’ll be one of England national team’s pillar in the midfield in the coming days.
The English international started his career with the youth team of Birmingham City and made his senior debut for the first team at the age of just 15 in the Championship.

Anyone who would see the young Englishman play could easily say that this young man has a bright future ahead of him.
He was so phenomenal in his solo season that Birmingham City retired his jersey number ’22’ after the German side Borussia Dortmund signed him for a massive £25 million with added on bonuses making him the most expensive 17-year-old in history.
After signing on for the German heavyweights who are also famous for their youth-based team philosophy, Jude Bellingham went on to make 46 appearances for his team.
He scored his debut goal against MSV Duisburg in the DFB-Pokal, he also made 4 Champions League appearances and notably, he also managed to score a legit goal against Manchester City but however was denied the goal.
