Borussia Dortmund chief makes stupid Jude Bellingham transfe
Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid have all been linked with a swoop for England midfielder Jude Bellingham, and his current clubs sporting director has spoken out
Borussia Dortmundsporting directorSebastian Kehlhas admitted he would be stupid to want to let theEnglandmidfielder leave Signal Iduna Park, while revealing the club has yet to receive a bid for the starlet.
Teenage midfielder Bellinghamjoined Dortmund for more than 20mfrom Birmingham City in 2020. Now, after kicking on for club and country, the 19-year-old is expected to fetch 100m or more if he is allowed to leave the Bundesliga side.
While no club has tested Dortmunds resolve with a January offer, at least one is expected to do so during the summer transfer window. Player and club have had talks pencilled in this month, and further discussions are set to take place.

Jude has made an incredible development here, Kelh told Kicker (viatalkSPORT). With the way he plays football, his fighting spirit and his commitment, he has become a real Borussia player who identifies very much with BVB.
I cant say today if and when that will be the case with Jude, and from a purely sporting point of view I would be stupid to want to give upJude Bellingham. Well talk to him and his parents in due course. There is currently no pressure.
Jude wants to concentrate fully on football. And by the way, there are no offers at all.

Liverpoolare reportedlyprepared to offer Bellinghams father Mark a scouting role at the club, while also keeping tabs on the midfielders brother Jobe, who is still at Birmingham. However, after finishing second and reaching theChampions Leaguefinal last season, Jurgen Klopps side are off the pace in the race for a top four finish this term.
Former England defender Sol Campbell has urged Bellingham to shun Liverpool and opt instead for a move to the Bernabeu. Real Madridis obviously one of the great historical teams and the way he playing, if he goes in the same direction, he would be perfect for Real Madrid because he is very young,the former Arsenal star saidat an event in Turkey.
Hes way ahead in a lot of things, he just needs the right club and the right manager to guide him in the right direction, thats all, and the right environment, because sometimes you can go to the wrong environment and so you waste your talent for a few years.
If he goes to Madrid, he will improve the team, but also the club can keep him in the future. It is a club that knows what to do with young players, to make sure they are going in the right direction and continue to perform.
