The likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid have all been linked with the 19-year-old in recent months but it appears they will face further competition as Manchester United’s name has now been thrown in the ring.
According to The Sun, citing a report from the Mirror, Erik ten Hag has identified Jude Bellingham as his primary transfer target for 2023 and the United boss is now desperate to try and lure him to Old Trafford.
The Sun claims that United are preparing a £100m offer for the Borussia Dortmund star, with the clubs hierarchy ready to back the Dutchman with funds to try and build a squad capable of competing for major trophies.
However, Man Utd know they must qualify for the Champions League next season to stand a chance of winning the race for his signature.
The Red Devils are facing a fierce battle to finish in the top four of the Premier League and are third favourites behind Arsenal and Barcelona to win the Europa League.
We’ll have to wait and see how things develop over the coming months but obviously it would be a major coup if United were able to land Bellingham ahead of the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Madrid and Man City.
