Man Utd bring forward Bellingham plans as Chelsea get serious

Manchester United are confident signing Birmingham City whiz Jude Bellingham ahead of Chelsea.

The Sun says United are set to go up to £15million forBellingham — to fend off a late move by Chelsea.

The Old Trafford giants are prepared to slap in the up-front sum for the 16-year-old midfielder because they know of Frank Lampard's interest.

Birmingham may have to accept the offer but they hope United will loan him back for the season.

Wolves have dropped out of the hunt and leading foreign clubs are still lurking in the hope that Bellingham goes cheap at the end of his contract.

Blues boss Pep Clotet could do with the funds for players, and plans to join the hunt for Peterborough's Marcus Maddison.
