The transfer window is in full swing and two of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, Manchester United and Chelsea, are both looking to bolster their squads with the addition of Jude Bellingham. The 17-year-old Birmingham City midfielder has been linked with a move to both clubs, with reports suggesting that United are in pole position to sign him.
Bellingham has been one of the most sought-after young players in Europe this summer, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in signing him. However, the Spanish giants have reportedly put their transfer operation on ice, leaving the door open for United and Chelsea to make their move.
United have been tracking Bellingham for some time and are believed to be in advanced talks with Birmingham City over a potential deal. The Red Devils are reportedly willing to pay up to £30 million for the teenager, which would make him the most expensive 17-year-old in history.
Chelsea have also been linked with Bellingham, but it is believed that they are not willing to match United’s offer. The Blues are reportedly keen to sign the midfielder, but are unwilling to pay the same amount as their rivals.
Bellingham is an exciting young talent and his potential move to either United or Chelsea would be a huge boost for both clubs. The 17-year-old has already made an impact in the Championship this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 28 appearances.
He is a versatile midfielder who can play in a variety of positions, and his ability to play in both attacking and defensive roles would be a huge asset for either United or Chelsea.
The transfer window is set to close on October 5th, so both clubs will need to act quickly if they are to secure the services of Bellingham. It remains to be seen which club he will choose, but one thing is for sure – his potential move to either United or Chelsea would be a huge boost for both clubs.
