Bayern Munich chief Kahn offers Prem clubs hope in Bellingham battle

Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn does not believe they are in the race to sign Jude Bellingham.

Many clubs are in pursuit of the young England and Borussia Dortmund midfielder in the coming transfer windows.

Liverpool have the strongest long-term interest, while Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Real Madrid are also mentioned by various press reports in the past 12 months.

However, he is unlikely to head for Bavaria next summer, according to Kahn.

“Of course Jude Bellingham for me is an outstanding player," the former German international goalkeeper told BILD .

“However, with [Joshua] Kimmich, [Leon] Goretzka, [Marcel] Sabitzer and [Ryan] Gravenberch, we're very well equipped in this position.

“So we're not thinking about that at all."
