According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United is not currently making efforts to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Although the team holds great admiration for the player, the sale of the club has left them unable to engage in negotiations with Dortmund. As a result, three other teams are currently ahead in the race to secure Bellingham’s signature.
“The reality is Manchester United (as of today) are not actively working on the Jude Bellingham deal. They love the player.
“They would be absolutely excited for Bellingham to join them but the reality is that with the owner’s situation/sale in progress… it is really difficult for Manchester United to negotiate with Borussia Dortmund… At the moment, Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid are the three frontrunners to sign Jude Bellingham.”
It is possible for the situation to change if Manchester United obtains new owners soon, as they could potentially have a substantial transfer budget to pursue Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham. In such a scenario, Bellingham would likely be a top priority for the club.
However, for now, it seems that Liverpool and Manchester City are making more progress in the pursuit of the player. Although Chelsea has been linked to Bellingham recently, Romano does not mention them. Unfortunately for United fans, the chances of Bellingham joining Old Trafford appear to be currently slim.
