Borussia Dortmund is adamant that they will accept nothing less than $120 million for the England midfielder, and after his performance in Qatar, they have every reason to be optimistic.
When considering the current transfer budget and Bellingham’s performance across all the competitions he participated in, any deal around $100 million is worth every penny.
Liverpool has always preferred him, he is Real Madrid’s No. 1 target, and they’re willing to pay over £100 million for him, whereas Man City finding their future midfielder on him. Combining all the facts, it is an absolutely bonkers scene.
Who will get the hand of the gold will be known in a span of few days, but Borussia Dortmund must be looking forward to banking big on him.
