Liverpool’s long-standing plans to move in on Borussia Dortmund talent Jude Bellingham next summer are set to be foiled by Real Madrid.
After deciding not to reinforce his side’s midfield options this summer, Klopp is expected to do so in the summer of 2023 and Bellingham is understood to be a top name on the manager’s shopping list.
Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s injuries have left Jurgen Klopp lacking quality options in midfield for the newly commenced season, but the Reds manager has insisted he is not looking for a new face.
According to Liverpool ECHO’s Charlotte Coates, European Champions Real Madrid also wants to sign the Dortmund sensation, with Liverpool expected to step up their approach for the England international next summer.
The 19-year-old midfield maestro is reportedly a strong target for Real Madrid, who are looking to beat Liverpool to the move by offering Bellingham a much lucrative offer of a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.
