Borussia Dortmund want to keep Jude Bellingham at the club and are hoping to offer him a new contract to make him one of their top earners, although they would struggle to turn down bids in excess of £133million. 

The England midfielder has been subject of high-profile interest form numerous clubs across Europe, with Real Madrid, Manchester City and Liverpool thought to be among the front-runners for the youngster’s services.  

Club stalwart Marco Reus’ agent was spotted at Manchester United sparking speculation that he could join the Premier League side at the end of the season, but Dortmund are set to receive a boost with Youssoufa Moukoko poised to sign a new four-year contract. 

Borussia Dortmund are confident they have a chance to keep hold of star Jude Bellingham

Bellingham, who starred for England at the World Cup is not thought to have made a decision on his future yet, but the club remain convinced that they are in with a chance to retain his services.

Patrick Berger tweeted: ‘Jude Bellingham has still not made a decision about his future yet. Man City, Liverpool and Real are interested and the clubs that come into question for him, as reported. 

‘“There are no offers at all for Jude”, Dortmund’s Sports Director Sebastian Kehl says to Kicker.’

He then tweeted again 14 minutes later, saying: ‘#BVB want Bellingham to stay but a fee of €150m could be a pain barrier. The Bundesliga side actually want to make him to a top earner + extend contract. 

‘But first Borussia want to know what the 19-year-old himself wants: If he said he can imagine to stay, BVB would make an offer.’

The midfielder has emerged as one of football’s leading players in his position after drawing widespread praise for his performances at the Bundesliga side since his 2020 arrival from Birmingham City.

His current contract runs until the end of the 2024-25 season, but it has grown increasingly likely that he is on his way out of Signal Iduna Park. 

Real Madrid are confident that they have taken the necessary steps to fend off their rivals for the 19-year-old and reportedly willing to pay £90m to add the ex-Birmingham star to their already-glittering midfield ranks.

So far for 2022-23 Bellingham has nine goals and three assists in 22 club appearances – captaining the side at times along the way – and scored England’s opening World Cup goal against Iran in Qatar.
