Chelsea challenge Man Utd in battle for Birmingham teen Jude Bellingham

Chelsea have joined the battle for Birmingham City teen Jude Bellingham.

The Sun says the Blues have entered a £50million battle with Manchester United to land Bellingham.

The Birmingham ace, 16, is being watched by all of Europe's top clubs including Real Madrid and Barcelona.

But Chelsea and United are leading the charge — and prepared to pay a mind-boggling £35m for the England youth star, plus £15m in add-ons, a potential record for a 16-year-old.

Bellingham is considered the best English talent since Wayne Rooney.
