Man City boost as BVB rethink Bellingham sale plans - and price

Manchester City have been encouraged in the battle for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

The Sun says Bellingham could leave Dortmund for £83million next summer – if the entire fee is paid up front.

And Manchester City are convinced they will win what is sure to be a battle of the big guns to bring him to England.

Liverpool have a long-established interest in the Three Lions midfielder, and believed they were favourites.

Chelsea are also big fans, while Manchester United would love him at Old Trafford, but know they need a top four finish to have any hope.

There are suggestions Dortmund want over £130m for the teenager, yet sources claim the true price could be nearly £50m less — as long as it is paid in one go.

City are certainly best-placed to do that, as well as offering the best chance of silverware – and the opportunity to link up with his old Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland.
