Jude Bellingham’s family are “demanding concrete offers” from clubs interested in the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, according to SportBild.
Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are believed to be the three teams currently leading the race for the player’s signature and it is said that his entourage are keen to have formal proposals on the table before they head into a meeting with Dortmund’s hierarchy after the World Cup.
The Bundesliga club’s chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has already confirmed that discussions with Bellingham are due to take place following the conclusion of the tournament in Qatar, so the player needs to know whether there is genuine interest in him before he tells Dortmund that he wants to leave next summer.
Signing a midfielder is a top priority for City. Captain Ilkay Gundogan is likely to leave when his contract expires in June while there are also doubts over the future of Bernardo Silva.
Bellingham’s asking price is thought to be as high as €150m (£131m) so the Premier League champions would probably have to break their transfer record to snap him up.
