Borussia Dortmund set to offer Jude Bellingham another contract extension

Borussia Dortmund are keen to keep Jude Bellingham beyond this summer and will make him a new contract offer.

Bellingham has been tipped to leave BVB this summer, with several top European clubs chasing his signature including Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The consensus is that Bellingham is ready to move, feeling he has achieved all he can in Germany.

However, Dortmund are eager to tie him down to a new deal. His contract runs until 2025, but the club wants to extend it and increase his salary to €15 million annually.

Sporting director Sebastian Kehl told ZDF Studios (via Sport1) that the midfielder is crucial for the team, and he will do what he can to keep hold of him.

The England international has grown incredibly since joining the Bundesliga club from Birmingham City in 2020.

Bellingham drives his team forward with the ball and can pop up in dangerous attacking areas. He is also solid defensively and a tenacious operator that brings energy to midfield.

The Stourbridge-born star is a born leader. Bellingham is vocal and not one to shy away from challenges. He has captained the club in the Bundesliga and the Champions League.

Bellingham was arguably England’s best player at the 2022 World Cup, showing that his performances can translate to any stage.

Dortmund know the talent they have on their hands and will demand around €150 million for him. This price will deter most clubs.

It is unclear if Bellingham will sign the contract extension if Dortmund make one. He could still decide to leave regardless of what BVB offer, but they will not know if they don’t try.
