SZ: Jude Bellingham set to join Dortmund in record deal

Birmingham City wonderkid Jude Bellingham is close to making a record-breaking move to Borussia Dortmund, Süddeutsche Zeitung reports.

The Bundesliga giants have beaten Manchester United and ‘half a dozen’ other top clubs to 16-year-old Bellingham

Bellingham, a gifted midfielder, will follow same path as Jadon Sancho by moving to Dortmund.

According to SZ, Bellingham and his father gave their word to Dortmund before the Coronavirus that he would join them.

BVB are ready to pay around €25m for Bellingham, who has made 32 appearances in the Championship this season.

This is considered a bargain for a super-talent many Premier League clubs would have paid a lot more for.

The imminent transfer should make Bellingham the most expensive under-18 player in football history.

That record currently belongs to Alexandre Pato, who AC Milan paid €24m for in 2007 when he was 17.
