Jude Bellingham entered the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as one of the biggest teenage prospects in Europe. After all, he has been starring for German side Borussia Dortmund ever since he arrived as a 17-year-old prodigy. Now 19, Bellingham is garnering interest from the best teams on the planet.
Playing well for Dortmund is impressive, but dominating midfield during the World Cup as a teenager is simply spectacular. Bellingham has started all four tournament matches for England so far. He has already collected a goal and an assist in the competition as well.
PSG among massive clubs desiring Jude Bellingham
Because of the breakout performances, the teen is receiving a lot of attention. Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have all been reportedly interested in bringing in the star next summer. PSG President and Owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi gushed about Jude Bellingham during a recent interview with Sky Sports.
“What a player. Honestly, England are lucky to have him … and he’s one of the best players in the tournament,” proclaimed Al-Khelaifi. “Amazing and you see his first World Cup – calm and relaxed and confident.”
The wealthy team owner also could not hide his interest in potentially bringing Jude Bellingham to PSG. “Everyone wants him. I’m not going to hide it,” Al-Khelaifi said. “But I respect he’s in his club and, respect if we want to talk to him, we talk to the club first.”
German team will make huge profit if they sell
Dortmund will certainly be talking to many teams regarding Bellingham. The German club previously shelled out an initial transfer fee of €25 million to buy the midfielder from Birmingham City. However, the total amount most likely has now reached €30 million after certain stipulations were met.
Nevertheless, many have suggested that Jude Bellingham is now worth in excess of $100 million, which is no issue for PSG. Some of the aforementioned big clubs probably wouldn’t baulk at a fee in this region, either. Dortmund can be patient on finding the right buyer though, as the teen’s current contract runs until 2025.
