His dynamic performances have attracted interest from elite clubs including Real Madrid and Liverpool earlier this summer.

‘And that at a young age! At just 19, he leads the team, doesn’t hide and already decides games with his style of play.’
Bellingham has started eight matches for Dortmund so far this season, netting twice and contributing one assist in the process.
The young midfielder has already earned 15 caps for the Three Lions and will be pushing for a place in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up for the 2022 Qatar World Cup – let alone boarding the plane for the major tournament.
Liverpool and Real Madrid are just two of a number of clubs that are expected to make bids for the Dortmund midfielder next summer or even as early as January.
