The Scousers are worried as they believe Jude Bellingham might take the step to Manchester City.
Jude Bellingham might end up at Manchester City as per Dean Jones
According to football journalist Dean Jones, Liverpool are concerned that Jude Bellingham would reject them and go with Manchester City instead. The adolescent, dubbed “amazing,” is perhaps the most sought-after player in the world right now.
He was one of England’s greatest performers during the World Cup and has been outstanding for Borussia Dortmund. Liverpool are frantically trying to sign him, but what if Manchester City ruins the deal?
Liverpool’s desire to sign Bellingham in any of the upcoming two transfer windows is now hardly a secret. The Englishman has been connected to the Reds for a while, and according to BILD, Bellingham has made up his mind to come to Anfield.
Jude to Man City?
Jones has disclosed that Manchester City may intervene and entice the player away in 2023. He asserts that Pep Guardiola’s team is getting more confident about the same, which is why Enzo Fernandez of Benfica and other midfielders are now being connected to Liverpool.
Although it appears that Liverpool would be prepared to match or surpass any future personal offer made to Enzo Fernandez, who still has a significant release clause of more than £100 million that has to be satisfied.
At the same time, we are also hearing that Bellingham, who is also more than that amount, is wanted. The Merseyside giants might not be able to spend that much. Thus, the math doesn’t work. Perhaps Liverpool are worried that Bellingham will actually go to Manchester City, where he has a strong connection with the former BvB striker.
Liverpool have endured a lot of hardship on the field at the hands of Manchester City in recent years. Jurgen Klopp has only ever won one Premier League championship, and that may not change for a few more years as a result of Pep Guardiola’s carrying a bunch of superstars in his team.
Erling Haaland’s acquisition in the summer elevated Manchester City, who were already the finest team in the nation, to a new level. The Reds need to match levels with the Sky Blues. Thus, the Englishman and the Argentine’s arrival at Anfield will definitely help in strengthening the squad.
