Man Utd make massive bid for Birmingham whizkid Jude Bellingham

Manchester United have tabled a massive bid for Birmingham City whizkid Jude Bellingham, it has been claimed.

The Sun says United have offered over £30million for 16-year-old Bellingham.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to broaden his options in midfield after losing both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay to injury, and has placed emphasis on youthful homegrown talent.

The club's recruitment since Solskjaer was handed the reins permanently has lined up with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward's vision of a 'cultural reboot' at the fallen giants.

And the signing of Bellingham would also fit into this, with the teenager's ability to be fielded either centrally or out wide triggering countless scouts to watch him in action throughout this campaign.
