Liverpool are reportedly another club interested in sealing a deal for Birmingham City starlet Jude Bellingham, who has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United.
According to 90min, the Scousers are showing an interest in Bellingham, but his present club are determined to not let him go in January, despite Man Utd issuing a £30million bid for his signature.
This follows reports from The Athletic linking the 16-year-old as a top target for Man Utd, so it will be interesting to see if he does make the move to the top-flight and, of course, to which club?
90min add that Bellingham won’t rule out a big move in the future to better his career, but for now it may be best to work on his development and make the most of being a regular in the first team at Birmingham, at such a young age.
Liverpool’s apparent interest adds competition to the race for Bellingham. Jurgen Klopp appears to be searching for young talent to keep his squad fresh and create a competition environment amongst his players.
This looks set to be a transfer saga and currently it’s an unpredictable one, not knowing where Bellingham would rather spent the coming years of his playing career. We couldn’t tell you to put your money on it, as it’s a lottery at this stage, so maybe a visit to an online casino could be a more reliable way to make some money this January.
To Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s credit, he has done a great job developing and improving some of our younger players this season. The likes of Mason Greenwood, Brandon Williams and Marcus Rashford have all been excellent.
The same can be said about the Liverpool boss, of course, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez flourishing in Klopp’s side in recent times.
Sporting Lisbon ace Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United?
This is dragging on and on. With just five days to go in the January transfer window, we are still unsure whether or not this move is actually going to happen.
According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, United can get a deal done if they pay €70million.
It’s mind-boggling that United have seemed keen to sign Fernandes all month — but are unwilling to put the finishing touches on the deal to make it happen quickly.
Solskjaer needs signings. Not Ed Woodward dragging his heels over transfer fees which we can only presume is being instructed by the Glazers.
The team has struggled this season due to a lack of quality and depth.
Juan Mata, 31, is currently the best option Solskjaer has in the no.10 role. Jesse Lingard is having a dire season and it wouldn’t surprise us if he left for pastures new in the summer.
Fernandes would fix some of the problems United face in the final third when trying to break down teams with a low block.
