Liverpool FC are the hottest contenders for Jude Bellingham's signing. The Reds are said to have already agreed on the basic conditions for a transfer with the player side.
This emerges from a report by the American sports television channel ESPN. Accordingly, ESPN have learned from a source that the Reds and Bellingham have already agreed on the general terms of a deal. The professional and his father Mark recently emphasized that they had not yet made a decision about a change.
While the England international is likely to become the new fixture in central midfield at Liverpool, he is slated to succeed Luka Modric and Toni Kroos at Real Madrid. The royals see Bellingham as the ideal complement to Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, who are also still very young. Federico Valverde has now established himself as a right winger in the three-man attacking line. At Chelsea he would follow in the footsteps of Ngolo Kanté and Jorginho, whose contracts expire in the summer.
Bild recently reported that Liverpool wanted to put up to 100 million euros for Bellingham. However, BVB is aiming for a sum of 150 million.
