Boehly told Chelsea will have to break British transfer record to sign ‘one of a kind’ star

Will Bellingham come to Premier League?

Dortmund will demand a British transfer record fee in order to part with Jude Bellingham this summer – Chelsea have found out

Bellingham was the subject of interest from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund made it clear they wouldn’t entertain any sale for one of their most impressive performers

However – it is widely believed that all the big clubs will be eyeing up a possible deal for Bellingham during the January window – rather than getting into a big time summer battle next summer

But if you guys believe the latest reports – the likes of Chelsea will have to pay some serious money in order to snap up the star

What is the latest?

Dortmund are determined to keep him but Bellingham will have just two years left on his deal this summer, meaning it will be the last chance for the club to extract as big a fee as possible for him.

With that in mind, the Athletic say the Germans will set an asking price of £131m for Bellingham.

That would mean a transfer record fee for a British player, which is currently the £100m fee paid for Jack Grealish in 2021 by Manchester City

Former England international Owen Hargreaves recently discussed why he is “one of a kind” as top European clubs will battle it out for the 19-year-old next summer.

“He can go wherever he wants,” said Hargreaves on BT Sport.

“You see now the young French boys they went to Real Madrid, that’s where everyone wants to go Real Madrid or Barcelona because everyone wants to play with attacking football. This kid is one of a kind.

“Everyone’s going to want him, Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool. He’s got to decide.

“To turn around a club like Manchester United and get them back to the top, I think he could carry that burden. I think the young man – he’s not a defensive midfielder [or] a 10, he’s just between in an eight.

“He’s smart, his weight of pass is good. His greatest attribute is his mentality, he loves football, he cares, got big shoulders, he’s the perfect midfield player.”
