The ongoing rumors about Jude Bellingham changing the atmosphere at BVB are putting a strain on it. In addition, many colleagues find the youngster's derogatory body language offensive.
This is reported by the Bild newspaper. Accordingly, the rumors of change are one reason why there is a lack of cohesion in the Dortmund cabin. More importantly, Bellingham was controversial as a leader with his teammates because of his often derogatory body language on the pitch. Before the season, Edin Terzic appointed the Englishman as third captain.
Since vice-captain Mats Hummels does not go down well with his repeated criticism of his colleagues, even the Dortmund hierarchy as a whole is at risk. The BVB pros would describe the atmosphere in the dressing room as "healthy", writes the image, "but they do not see themselves as a conspiring unit."
Regarding Bellingham's future, the tabloid also reports that his family is demanding concrete offers from big clubs such as Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea. It is planned that the 19-year-old will continue to improve his negotiating position with good performances at the World Cup.
After the tournament, Bellingham wanted to talk to those responsible for BVB and officially tell the club his thoughts on leaving. In the past few weeks, the picture and other media had reported that the black and yellow would have little hope that the midfielder would stay.
