Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham has been in sensational form this season. The teenager has scored nine goals and provided three assists across all competitions.
As a result, he is being considered a transfer target by some of the top clubs in the world. The likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid have been closely linked with his signature next summer.
Jude Bellingham expected to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer
“I think as soon as the World Cup is over, we will have a general discussion about what he (Jude Bellingham) really wants,” Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke commented to Bild TV.
“We will speak with him and his parents, with whom we have a very close relationship, and, of course, with his advisor.
“He should tell us whether he wants to stay or whether he wants to leave.
“In both cases, we will have a very pleasant and reasonable discussion between us.
“But we don’t have to pretend that the issue is not on the table. If the really big clubs are involved, then we can’t afford to have a financial fight.”
A price tag upwards of €100 million has been quoted for the Englishman. However, he will have to be convinced by the sporting project at whichever club he is expected to move to before the transfer happens.
