BVB chief Cramer warns Klopp: No Bellingham discount for Liverpool

Borussia Dortmund managing director Carsten Cramer says Liverpool won't get any discount on signing Jude Bellingham.

The England international is a target for former BVB coach Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

“We have a high sympathy for Liverpool for sure," said Cramer. "We are still in a good relationship with Jurgen and many others at Liverpool, so for me, it's my preferred club in the EPL as well.

"But don't expect that we will make gifts to Liverpool."

Bellingham is expected to be given a price tag of at least £100million, a valuation which could increase further should he continue his impressive performances with England at the World Cup.

Dortmund, though, are hopeful of keeping hold of the midfielder for as long as possible.

“Maybe there is a success existing between Jude Bellingham and (England's) success in the World Cup," Cramer told Vietnam News, with Dortmund on tour in the region.

“He (Jude) has a contract. I'm a sales person regarding commercial business, but not regarding the player's business. We are happy to have him on board 100% and the longer Jude will play for us, the better it will be."
