Birmingham boss Clotet admits big interest for Man Utd target Bellingham

Birmingham City boss Pep Clotet concedes there's great interest in Jude Bellingham.

The teen is a top target for Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

Clotet says: "Because of the current situation we have now, we possibly think we'll be competing and playing games until July.

"We are very focused on the present and there's so much uncertainty in this situation that it's very difficult to start thinking about next season.

"What I'm very happy about now is that Jude is here with us and all the players are here with us as well.

"We focus on that really, but I understand there's going to be more speculation when the games do come back.

"As a head coach, I don't deal with transfers, it's the club. But I can imagine the situation has all the clubs very worried about how to finish this season and what impact this season has into next season.

"That can change a lot of the future of the clubs. Possibly it's going to be a busy summer, possibly it's going to be less busy, we still don't know what impact it will have."
